Step 1: Step 1. Use Template to Mark Vinyl & Cut

Cut out the template and trace the pieces on the back of the vinyl. Place the template for A1 and A2 together to create one larger shape. Use the marker to clearly label each shape according to the template. Cut out all of the template pieces

Step 2: Hot Glue Vinyl Pieces to Fingers of Glove

To make it easier to work with, stuff the inside of the glove.

Hot glue template piece 1a to the top of the index finger of the glove Make sure to try to line up the vinyl with the seams of the glove.

Next glue piece 1b on top of 1a, lining up the bottoms of both pieces. Then do the same with pieces 1b and 1c. Lastly, glue piece 1d on top of 1c, again lining up the bottoms.

Repeat the steps with each finger of the glove, applying the pieces a-d in order. Pieces 4a-d will go on the little finger.

Step 3: Glue the Wrist Template Pieces to Glove

Hot glue the wrist of the glove, palm facing up to the middle of piece A1/A2.

Wrap piece A1/A2 around the glove and then glue it along the top edge to form the wrist guard of the gauntlet. Glue the long sides together.

Hot glue piece E to the top forearm, about 2” from the base. Step 12.

Attach pieces B1/B2 to the wrist, overlapping piece E, leaving about a 1/2” gap between the pieces.

Step 4: Attach the Thumb Pieces

Glue piece F1 to the side of the gauntlet under the thumb, about 2” from the base.

Attach piece D1 to the wrist, overlapping pieces B1 and F1

Repeat these steps with pieces F2 and D2, so that both sides match.

Hot glue piece G to the thumb, lining it up with the top seam.

Glue on piece H to overlap piece G, followed by piece I. Lastly, glue piece J the center of piece I.

Glue piece C on top of the hand, slightly overlapping the base of the fingers.

Step 5: Glue on Remaining Pieces and Attach Cord

Glue pieces K thru O to the top of the gauntlet. Piece L should be under the little finger and piece O under the index finger.

Using the hot glue, attach the black cord to the edges of the vinyl.

Step 6: Spray Paint the Gauntlet and Add Jewels

Spray paint the gauntlet with the Champion Gold Enamel Spray, and then add a very light layer of the textured metallic gold. Alternate between the Gold Enamel Spray and the textured metallic gold until you get the desired look. Let dry.

Hot glue on the 3/4” round jewels as follows: green - thumb, purple - index, blue - middle, red - ring, and orange - pinky. Add the yellow 1” oval jewel to the middle of piece K.

Use the black sharpie to add a few lines and detailing around the oval jewel and knuckles.

    I like your design brother, I like the use of a leather glove for the base of the gauntlet. When I made my own, I used a gardening glove as I was limited in materials but I did add an electronic part to it to make the stones light up. I made an electronic circuit in an 'R' shape (see figure below) using copper tape and I used a button battery to provide the power. It was finicky to get the tape in the right position but I worked. I had to solder on LEDs to the circuit in the right positions for the Infinity stones which turned out pretty good. However, because I did add LEDs I had to make a cover for the Infinity stones to sit on. This was just made with cardboard attached vertically to a panel of cardboard. I glued it together and I spray painted it and the final result looks really good (see below)
