Photos: mostly of ball-jointed Asian dolls (some not quite safe for work), cats, plants; occasionally art; and local Chicagoland scenery. Comments are moderated so they will take a bit to show up.

Fancy Doll Armor
Andy sent me a Pinterest tutorial page and I saw this! It's from luiren.deviantart.com and it's intended for humans, but I think you could get the same effect with a base of the thin craft foam and the design printed out on cardstock, then cut out with an exacto or manicure scissors, then painted. The layering of the design looks really good; and you just need to print two or three copies of the design, cut out each layer, and stack them to get that effect.
The end result won't be shiny, but you can do a nice weathered look of steel or copper with metallic paints. If I have time this weekend I will see if I can make something for Samara with craft foam and cutouts.
