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.

By Mata Nui, I'd say this is quite an expertly-crafted Ta-Koro Ensign you've made there! I even like the uneven paintjob, as it makes it look old and worn. Props to you, good sir and/or madam!

Nicely made! :) Nostalgia factor aside, you've done a really great job, and paid a lot of attention to detail. Again, there's a certain aged look to it. Very nice.

Looking cool! Am I the only one that thinks it looks like a cookie, though?

I really like this! It's nice not being the only one who makes stuff out of BIONICLE. The only thing I would say is that the back portion should be more red than black, but that's really just a nitpick that can be ignored. Great Job!

Oh my Gahlok, I want Ta Koro ensign cookies now! :drooling:

It looks very authentic, but at the same time...sort of biscuit like.  You should make some edible ones, and sell them at conventions. :P

Suggestions noted.  Now I must figure out how to make cookie cutters :P

Looks really nice, better than what I expected it to be(another MNOG make, probably won't turn out too good...). The 3D looks great, and I mean I love the idea of making it "raised". Now, for the cookies...
