After Breaking My Wrist, I Turned My Plain Cast Into Thanos‘ Infinity Gauntlet

I broke my wrist recently and decided that rather than walk around with a plain white arm cast, I’d pimp it.

With the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ coming out, it seemed like the only logical DIY project to do!

The first step was turning my broken arm cast to gold. I just used gold metallic acrylic paint.

I got some craft gems and just sized them up! I was having serious doubts about whether the Thanos’ gauntlet was still a good idea at this stage!

Planning out the design. I had to use my left (I’m right-handed) hand, so this was particularly tricky!

This was just testing the gold 3D fabric paint to see if I could create the ridges on the Infinity gauntlet.

After all the 3D paint was on.

I used a standard black marker to begin the detailing, didn’t want to complicate my easy DIY.

I used a metallic acrylic bronze and some black to start smoothing/adding shadows.

The first test of painting the gems. Again just acrylic paint – it took a few coats and a hairdryer!

I ended up adding some PVA glue to the paint for the gems. This was to help it stick and add a shiny gloss to them.

I used a silver pen to add subtle highlights just to help with the allusion of depth in the detailing.

Tadaaah! A grown man walking around as an Avengers character with gems on his arm!
