Make a Miniature Glass Shield from Skyrim


This is a tutorial on how to make a miniature glass shield from skyrim. Fun little project and easy to make. You just need a few basic supplies including a package of epoxy resin.

I also have a video tutorial on this project at the bottom of the page.




The Glass shield


Parts and Materials for this project:

Mark a circle on foam

Start out with two sheets of foam. Most types of foam will do. You can even use sheets of wood for this. These sheets are about eight inches square. In the center of one of them draw a circle with a six inch diameter.


Glue to another piece

Cut out that disk then glue the two pieces of foam together. Also run a thick line of glue all the way around the circle to seal the two pieces together. We don't want the epoxy resin leaking in that crack around the circle. The picture here shows a whole lot of glue. You can go ahead and wipe away all that excess. You just want the crack to be sealed.


Mix the resin

Mix equal parts of your epoxy resin together and add some green food coloring.


Pour resin into mold

And pour it in your mold. Then let it dry.

Mark up the shield

Mark up the shield with a marker or sharpie to get it to the shape of the actual shield.



Cut out the design

Then cut it to shape. The epoxy resin is easy to cut. A wide variety of tools will work including jewelers saw, sand paper, files and more.
