Introduction(skip if you don't care)
Hello, Michael here. This instructable demonstrates my idea for a pseudo-chainmail costume. At this time it is only conceptual, but I'm certain the results will only have minor bugs. Materials & Tools:
Black Mesh Cloth (link below demonstrates a laundry bag that would work nicely)
Silver Spray Paint (or other metallic color of your choice)
Needle & thread (black preferably)
beads, or tiny fishing weights for adornment and the illusion of weighted rings (optional)Bag:http://www.walmart.com/ip/Mainstays-Industrial-Strength-Laundry-Bag/19598769Paint: (might work better than the paint I plan to use because it is meant for fabric.)http://www.walmart.com/ip/Next-Style-Simply-Spray-Fabric-Paint-Blue-Jay-Lavender-Black/20711975
*Tip #1: The width of the mesh will be a real selling point on the chainmail effect. To my eyes the bag in the link has a really good mesh size.DISCLAIMER: IMAGES USED IN THIS INSTRUCTABLE ARE NOT MY OWN! THEY ARE FOR VISUAL AID PURPOSES ONLY!
