This is my first Instructable, so suggestions and CONSTRUCTIVE criticism is appreciated.
Step 1: Materials and Stuff
Cardboard sized about: 20 3/4 In. X 21 1/4 In.
A pair of scissors or an x-acto knife or something sharp and precise.
Two paintbrushes. I got a thick and thin bristled brushes.
A cup of water.
A soft cloth or wash cloth.
And the hardest to find, acrylic paint. It needs to be acrylic, because the lady at the art shop said it showed up the best on cardboard.
The colors I used were:
Carmine (dark red)
Primary Yellow (yellow)
Neutral Grey (grey)
Titanium White (white)
Phthalo Blue (dark blue)
Step 2: Sketching the Design
I believe I made the Twilight Princess version of the shield, but don't quote me on that.
So, to sketch it, take your pencil and sketch the design as best you can. Don't worry too much about making wrong lines because it'll be covered in paint soon enough.
Step 3: Painting-Part 1
Don't get your panties in a wad if you accidentally get some of the paint in the other parts of the shield, because it'll be painted over soon anyway.
