Instructions

  • How to make a horn. Lady Loki Helmet - Step 1
    Step 1

    I started off by making a template. The template is attached.

    Step 2

    Trace and cut all the templates from the craft foam. The main piece needs to be traced 2 or 3 times it depends how think you want it.

  • How to make a horn. Lady Loki Helmet - Step 3
    Step 3

    Water down the wood glue but not too much or it won't work well. Glue all 2 or 3 main piece and the middle piece together. The wood glue will make it stay in the rounded form of your face. Tape things in place if it keep moving. Let this dry for a couple hours 2-3 will do. Depends on how much you used.

    Step 4

    Glue the horns together edge to edge using hot glue or super glue. Wood glue works too but it's easier if if you don't use it. Attach the horn to the main piece. Then use your watered down wood glue to coat the foam so it doesn't soak up the paint. You want a nice thick coat of glue. The watered down glue should not be slpashy but more thick so you can get this done faster. Let it dry for 8-12 hours. NOTE: once it's dry don't bend it too much or it will crack

    Step 5

    Now using the fabric paint create swirly designs. Put it around the horns to create a welded look.

  • How to make a horn. Lady Loki Helmet - Step 6
    Step 6

    Paint it all gold! I did about 5 coats until I saw no more white spots. Then to add a vintage look paint it black where the designs are at then wipe 90% off with a wet rag. Do this until you get the look you want.

  • Step 7

    Spray a thick coat of clear acrylic. Once it's completely dry add elastic at the back to keep it on.
