Captain America’s Shield


I am not emotionally ready for Age of Ultron.

I made Steve Rogers’s shield with a kind of antiqueish old look rather than all shiny and precise, and with a massive break in it like in the Age of Ultron trailer. It wasn’t too difficult because it didn’t need to be completely symmetrical, which was my main motivation for making it broken and cracked, but also because I liked how it looked like that. I made it with a flattened circle of black clay, which I drew the different shapes onto with a needle following a paper stencil that I traced off my computer screen. After it was baked, I painted it with glaze mixed with mica pigments and stuck a pin-back on it.






All my friends are dragons.
