DIY Captain America shield cardboard


Hey folks today I’m gonna show you how
you can make this Captain America’s shield and it’s magnetic bracelet using only some cardboard and a few magnets let’s dive into it hey I’m Raphael I work in movie industry
as a professional Steadicam operator But I also have an unusual skill I make
awesome props from movies like this with just a few pieces of cardboard and some
easy tools and I explain to you how to do this so if you are new here consider subscribing in this video I’m gonna show you how to make Captain America’s shield but hey at
any point during t he video check out the show notes and links in the description
below I’ll list all the tools that I’ve used as
well as some additional resources and of course templates for all parts that I’ve
build now let’s jump into the video I started by cutting several pieces like
this as I said all the templates are in the description below so the first step that you’ll have to do is reporting the templates on your pieces of cardboard print them all and with a tool report the drawings on your pieces of cardboard that way then cut the pieces with a precision
knife don’t forget that all the tools that have used are in the description below as
well afterward I smashed them a little bit
and glued them together using hot glue if both ends doesn’t match correct the
angle of the circle a little bit that way question of the day what weapons/props
from movies in general would you like me to make next write the name of them in
the comment section below I cut a large round piece like this and I
glued it in the middle of the shield then I cut pieces like this to make the
rings of the shield as I did you’ll have to adapt both tips
for each pieces in order that they fit perfectly each other I did the same for
all the pieces if your skeleton is slightly higher as
was mine remove what exceeds with a precision knife then I widened the
separations between the pieces with a small tool that way then to make these openings still I put in
it wood glue I defined the middle of the shield with
a cross using pencil then with a degree ruler I made marks every 72 degrees in order to draw a star then arise all the pencil lines in the middle
of the star then using my precision knife I cut slightly the star and I widened the openings as I did before by the way if you feel like you need to
see more about the specific part that I’ve maybe showed too fast sign up for
free to my email list in the description bellow and you’ll receive a full
time-lapse video start to finish of the entire construction as well as additional
informations behind the same and pictures of this craft I cut several
pieces like this I smashed them a little bit and I glued them on the side of the shield and I close the remaining openings using
hot glue then using magnets which are linked in
the description below I made squares that I glued on little
pieces of cardboard like this make this operation twice in order to have
two electrodes then to make the bracelet I cut pieces of cardboard like this,
I smashed them then using wood glue I made rollers with it I made six this side
and I made three bigger ones like this afterwards
I glued them together in order to have three stems like this pay attention to have separations between pieces at different places in order not to create weakness point then glue the stems together all the templates that you need are in
the description below but keep in mind that even with the templates you
probably have to fit you own pieces to your own construction a little bit because at this point there is no chance that they are exactly the same as mine then I made a few more rollers like this to make the other parts of the bracelet I smoothed the tips of these ones using
sandpaper in order that they fit better on the bracelet make a slight angle
like this afterwards I made 12 more rollers like
this and I glued them tree by tree I glued two of them on the bracelet I glued another one here and I glued the
magnets on both sides pay attention at positioning the magnets
in the right way in order that they attract each other instead to repel each other and I glued the two other magnets on
the other pieces then I cut thin pieces of cardboard like this in order to cover the magnets I folded the borders using a ruler that way and I glued them on the magnets but
try not to put glue directly on the magnets in order to keep the spaces
between the ones on the shield and the ones on the bracelet as little as
possible and do the same for the other ones on the shield afterwards I glued the two others pieces of
magnets on the shield if needed don’t hesitate to add some
cardboards in order to keep it as right as possible then I shaped this piece that way to make a kind of hemisphere like this then using my precision knife I made
notches on both tips in order to be able to glue it on the bracelet that way don’t hesitate to make this piece shorter or longer according to the size of your arm afterward I darken parts of the
shield using a pencil to make the construction solid and resistant I covered the whole craft with a mix of wood glue and water I made two layers of it, one with an equal mix of wood glue and water and the second one
with twice as much wood glue as water and then I covered the whole craft with two layers of varnish so this is how I made Captain America’s
shield and if you feel like you need to see more about the specific step sign up for free to my email list in the description below and you’ll receive a full time lapse video, start to finish, of the entire construction and if you want to learn more about how to make props and stuff from movies like this watch those
