My 11 year old cousin is one of the biggest Zelda fans I know. So when he heard that I was planning on making a Hylian Shield for myself he begged my to make one for him, too. I was really motivated and sat down with my Dremel trying to make the ornaments. Even after a whole day I was not able to get the symmetry I was aiming for. So I set the project aside. A few weeks before Christmas I stumbled over the pieces and decided to give it another shot. By then I was the proud owner of a 3D printer, which allowed me to simply print all the ornaments for the shield. Instead of painting the shield myself I decided to let him do it and as you can see in the second picture he did a really good job.
