On the plywood, draw out the shield and then go over the pencil with a sharpie.

After drawing out the shield, lay down the masking tape and use the utility knife to cut out the shape of each detail.

After you have finished cutting the masking tape to fit the details, carefully peel off the tape and place it onto another piece of plywood. Then cut out the shape.

Peel off all of the masking tape stencils and spray paint the whole shield navy, (the navy will act as a primer for the silver.)

Once dry apply masking tape to the edge of the blue and where the silver paint will be applied.

Absolutely love it! I like The Rambler's idea of adding a handle on the back, for carrying purposes. Now, I just need to learn how to make me a sword! :D

BTW, I featured your build on the Nerd Eh! blog. Keep up the great work!

I can teach you how to make the master sword

I know this guy in real life, I was there when he made it. Great job man!
This is really cool. I love builds like this. Did you do anything on the back for a handle or is this just meant as a display piece?

One thing I would add is that it would probably be better to sand down the edges before painting.
