Step 1: You'll Need:
1. Craft Foam
2. Box Cutter
6. Heat Gun/Hair Dryer/A Stove
7. spray Paint (Black and Silver)
8. The Template
Step 2: Trace the Template Onto Foam and Cut It Out.
Step 3: Shape It.
Use a heatgun/hair dryer/a stove to heat the foam first, then mold it into the shape you want it to take.
Do not heat the foam for long, it may result in the foam burning.
Step 4: Now Coloring.
First seal the whole faceplate in two to three layers of modpodge.
Once the modpodge dries completely, fill the faceplate with a coat of black spray paint (you can use normal acrylic if you prefer). After that spray some silver paint onto a plastic cover and dab it onto the faceplate, which gives the faceplate a worn out metal look!
That's it your faceplate is now complete.
