Tyrael’s Shoulder Pads- Diablo III / Heroes of the storm
To create the shoulder pads, I made templates on tracing paper off of reference images I got from Tyrael's character from the game Heroes of the Storm. I then cut 2, 4 & 8mm EVA foam to construct each section and sanded them with my sanding drum. I then used my heat gun to heat treat the EVA foam and glue the pieces together using contact cement glue. To give me the proper height off the shoulder, I added foam mat to the underside of the shoulder pads. Next I used Kwik Seal to fill any unwanted seams & cracks. I then covered the shoulder pads with three coats of Plasti Dip and let dry. Once they were dry, I taped off my piece & painted the shoulder pads black, then silver using an airbrush. After drying, I masked off the silver areas and did a base coat of mocca followed by gold and brown airbrush paint. I then removed the tape and added details with acrylic paint. The final step was to add Velcro and then they were done!
