    The way to make gloves

    In the past few years, people have been asking me on how to make gloves. I tried to explain the whole process; however it is never easy to make all the things clear only by text description. This time I took an evening to record how I make gloves by taking pictures.

    I hope the following pictures can make it easier for you to understand on how I make a gloved-hand, or how I glue a gloved-hand to be more exact.






    tools you need: 1.toothpicks 2.modeling adhesive tape 3.thread clips 4. universal glue (not quick type) 5.tweezers 6.a piece of cloth from an old t-shirt







    Apply small amount of glue to a 1:6 hand by using a toothpick, then cover up with cloth.







    Apply glue to fingers, cover up with cloth again, then press with tweezers, it helps to get a good shape on fingers.







    Cut as the dashed guide line, then glue the thumb.







    I think it is easy to understand as the picture shows you, so I save my words you save your time.







    bla-bla-bla-bla...

    bla-bla-bla-bla...







    bla-bla-bla-bla again.







    After finishing the palm part, place the hand on an arm to measure the size for the rest part. ATTN: DON NOT apply glue to the arm.







    If you are not confident to cut a straight line, use modeling adhesive tape as reference line.







    Fix the edge with glue.







    all done







    As you have seen, it is all about gluing-covering up-cutting, it is not difficult at all but needs a little patience. It takes around 2-3 hours to make a pair of glue-hands. I hope I have made myself clear.

    It will look better with weathering, pls refer to my previous bash works for detail, they are all weathered.

    Enjoy.

    Sorry I really don't know how it calls in English. It is not super glue I think, super glue is super quick dry type. The glue I use feels a little bit sticky, it begins to dry at about 3-5 minutes, around 30 minutes to get firm, it provides you enough time to make adjustment.

    Well...That's just slick. Thank you very much.

    The glue he's using looks similar to good old model airplane cement.

    That is a genius technique, thanks for the tutorial!
    The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
    Is the terrible AT-AT Walking Machine.
    It's as big as a house on walking legs,
    And whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.
