How to Re-form Plastic Armour

How to Re-form Plastic Armour

I've been at this gig a while now, and over the last 20 years or so, I've become quite adept at sizing armour according to measurements. But sometimes measurements aren't quite right. Or perhaps your padding needs have changed and you need a little more space in that vambrace. It's even possible that we master plasticsmiths just got it wrong (certainly contact us if that's the case). Whatever the reason, for the times where you want to make a change to the shape of your plastic gear, this video is for you.

The linked video below will walk you through the tools and techniques to heat plastic for the purpose of reshaping it. Before getting started, you will need:

  • a propane torch (see Amazon affiliate links below)
  • clamps (see Amazon affiliate links below)
  • patience (Amazon does not sell this)
  • practice (ditto)
