Love that paldron! How do you have it clipped on? And do you have directions on how it's made?
Thanx

I'll be taking some close up pictures of it tonight so you can see how I constructed it.

There's weren't any instructions though. It was a trial and error method of creating it until I got what I wanted.

i'm not too interested in putting a template up, as I'd rather see how creative YOU can be rather than try to recreate my pauldron. On top of that, my pauldron is fitted to fit me. It may look alot different on you or anyone else that's not my size. But I can explain my process a bit, so it may give you some ideas.

Like I said, I didn't use any templates or anything. I just got some craft foam and started cutting it to the general shape I wanted the paudron to be and draped it over my shoulder. I did this 4 or 5 times until I got it the size that I wanted. Then used THAT as a template to cut out my vinyl.

After that, I sewed up my edges and traced it onto a big sheet of paper. Then drew where I wanted the armor plates to be on that piece of paper. I cut em out, and used those as templates for the armor that you see on the finished pauldron. The plates were simply hot glued into place and then rivited on permanently.

Pics later tonight.

I didn't mean for you to draw up a template just more or less the size of the armor plates. But all that info you have provided is very helpful! If I make a Paldron it will look different anyways since I'm a lefty and will be on my right shoulder. Can't wait for the pics :D
