Captain America Shield Earrings


#1

Haven’t posted in a while and thought I would share these Captain America Shield earings I made for a friend to where with her Captain America Halloween costume.

Made from Acrylic. The pieces fit so tightly together that no glue is needed.


#2

Well done. Excellent use of the vibrant colors of acrylic.

I wonder if they could be sanded and polished into a dome shape? They’re awesome as is though, really well done.


#3

Awesome.


#4

Wow, no scorching at all or flashback. Nicely done.


#5

Sharp!

My brother, being a HUGE Cap fan, would wear those…if he wore earrings. =)

Those are really outstanding!

Most excellent question, if I say so myself. That would make them even “AWESOMER!” :grinning:

Waving a small torch over them while on a round form would work, or oven @300. Just pat form with a glove on until desired shape.

Problem here is they are not one chunk. I have found tight things like shown get very loose once heated. Unsure why, but they will indeed be loose once it all cools down.

Still, it would be worth a try on another one. (for science).

Did you have to account for kerf when fitting them together? If so, how did you do that?
