The postal service was dumb and I still haven’t gotten my order of a defense attorney badge and magatama from AEnyOtherName on etsy. It was supposed to be here on the 28th but noooooooooo. Let’s deliver it in the middle of the day on the day the package is needed. Great idea! *sarcasm* I won’t get it before my mornign classes, so I resorted to my original plan. My magatama and my just completed one-of-a-kind defense attorney badge.
The magatama was sculpted out of clay, fired in a kiln, then painted with acrylic paint with a final glossy spray.
The badge was made out of cardboard, a paper towel roll, to be more precise (go recycling!). This one was a bit of a doozy. I glued flat about 5 pieces of the roll, cut out a circle, sliced the sides, carved into the center, made a separate tiny balance out of two layers of the roll for the center, glued it in, sanded it to get the details I wanted, added a layer of glue (because the layers were peeling apart from the sanding), glossed it with a glossing medium (multiple coats), painted it gold (lots and lots of coats), and finally more gloss (again, multiple coats). Presently, I have a pin glued to it, still drying. It’s a lot of work for such a tiny thing D:
I might post pictures of my Mia Fey cosplay. Key word, MIGHT.
I hope you like these. I worked hard on both of them.
