    Real Captain America Shield

    Quick question! I am trying to make this build, however, I can NOT find metallic red spray paint anywhere. Every time I go to a store, it has to be purchased in a set of 6 or more. Where did you buy your metallic red spray paint?Also, is the metallic silver you used very bright? I purchased a metallic silver that has turned out to be fairly bright, and I'm not sure if it is the same thing you have used in this build. Does it need to look more muted/aluminum? Just let me know what you think pleaes. Finally, instead of using the plastic sled, I am using EVA foam. I'm not sure how it will turn out, but will post pics when it is completed!

    Awesome! Thank you so much! My students won't be making them; I actually plan on just having it as decoration in the walls somewhere to go with the "hero" theme of my classroom. But I have either paint, so I'll figure out what works best! I appreciate your help; thank you!!

    Hi! I'm looking through your tutorial on these shields and I'm definitely wanting to make one! My classroom next year is going to be "superhero themed," so these are kind of perfect for the walls! I've tried to make my shopping list of the materials and want to get the supplies tomorrow. I just wanted to ask a couple of quick questions regarding your help from this response. Did you buy your SINTRA PVC from a craft store or online? Was the thickness 5mm, 3mm, or 2mm? Where did you find the little 3D stars (or did you make them)? And finally, when painting, you mention pulverizing the paint on a palette. Do you mean you sprayed directly on the palette and used that to paint with a brush? I've just never heard that term before, so I wanted to make sure my understanding was corre...see more »Hi!
