Me friend is really into Fallout 3 and particularly the Brotherhood of Steel. He really like their logo because, as he drunkenly told me on night (and I’m paraphrasing) “It’s like I’m going to defeat you, but I’m also going to use technology.”
So armed with some crazy glue, a set of decorative gear sprockets I picked up from the craft store, a thin sheet of copper, and a soda can, I set out to make him the logo. Unfortunately I didn’t document it step by step as I normally do, but it’s really simple. I printed off the design (scaled of course) and then found a soda can. I took some steel wool and rubbed off the paint, leaving just the shinny aluminium. (You’d be surprised how many household materials can be easily modified to give you raw crafting materials). I finally traced, cut, and glued.
