Introduction: 3D Steampunk Goggles
Didn't like the boring glasses you get at the movies....So I turned them into something better. This is how black ops or any 3D game should be played
Step 1: You Will Need
1: Pattern (You can get a great one from lostwax.com )
2: Sharp Knife
3: 3d glasses (just the lenses)
6: 5 minute 2 part epoxy. (Sold at any hardware store) this is for rivets if you want them
7: Hot glue, or contact cement
8: Black paint, or the colors you want it.
9: Foam Sheet
10: Hole Punch (For the screw look)
Step 2: Visual Learners
If you prefer to watch it, this is the video I watched
Step 3: Print and Cut
1: Print the pattern.
2: Cut it
3: Then trace it to the foam
4: Cut the pattern
Step 4: Glue the Pieces Together
Just take hot glue gun and put it together, the video will show exact steps
Step 5: Add Some Flare
Take that hold punch and make a bunch of pieces to add to look like screws. You can make whatever you want, but the screws look cool. I also used washers and furniture tacks
Step 6: Apply the Rivets
Get the 2 part epoxy. Just do a small amount it dries quickly. Take a toothpick or match and dot the epoxy where you want rivets.
Let it dry for a little while. Go make dinner, or stalk your ex-girlfriend on facebook. Man can't believe shes with that guy.... Anyway wash the cheetos off your hands, and let's get back to work.
Step 7: Make the Hitch at Back
Watch video at begining for this
Step 8: Time to Paint
Do your main color first. For this one I did silver and brown for the straps to make it look like leather and metal.
Let dry and watch some videos on youtube. Cats are always doing something stupid.....stupid cat, playing the piano....you can't play the piano...
Back to work
Step 9: Lets Do the Rub Paint
Take your paint
Put a little on a paper towel or spare foam or paper plate.
Get it to where it will be faint
start with raised surfaces and work around to give a worn look
Step 10: Take the Lenses Out of 3d Glasses
Pot em out. real easy and put them in the slots in goggles. i put a lil hot glue on em to hold in place.
Now clean the lenses cause the look like you ate greasy chicken on em.
Good, should look better now.
Step 11: Let It Dry
Let it dry overnight, don't get excited and get paint in your hair...like i did.
Now go check the mail in them after they dry, cause you know the neighbors will get jealous.
You can wrap some wire or yarn around the nose or just leave plain.
Now post them on facebook. You did a good job. Time to own some people on Black ops
or what ever you play.
Step 12: Seal Them
If you like them, make sure they last you. Brush with some fiberglass resin or mod podge
