Here is a project I've been working on:
We've all seen the Ta-Koro guard ensign in MNOLG. Here's a picture of it as an it in-game to refresh your memory.
Well, I wanted to make one like the size of a police badge, a common interpretation seen in the BZPRPG. So, I made a simple 2&1/2 inch template picture, using pictures from BS01. Then, I printed it out and cut the circle on two thin pieces of foam board stuff my grandfather has for model railroading projects (Around 1/6 inch each), glueing them together afterwards. Then I cut out the insignia and glued that to foam board, which my grandfather cut out with a Dremel.
Then I cut a strip of cardstock which I hot-glued around the edges of the circle. Them I put on a thin layer of this neat, clay-like paper mache mixture over the top to smooth it out and give a more rough appearance. We primed those (Conveniently with a dark red primer), then I painted the insignia. And then we hot-glued them on the circle today.
