Processing the stock 8 mm thick
Gluing the panels in different pattern to make the shield stronger (criss-cross)
Cutting the circle with jigsaw
Gluing the fabric (linen) on shield
Paint it in any color (I used acrylic paint)
Draw your design or just leave it in one or two colors :)
Use chisel to remove quickly and then refine it with wood rasp or metal file
I bought a cheap dog bowl and my neighbour made it look more aged and more epic "Of course"
I used hydrochloric acid to achieve aged look because the bowl is stainless steel so it doesn't rust.
I made my own pins out of brass screws to attach the boss on shield.
I used metal thumbtacks to attach the eco leather around the rim. The leather is sewed by my father :)
I also distressed the shield to match the shield boss ;)
Finished Shield :)
