Shield cover questions

Recommended Posts

So all the shield making tutorials I watch have shield covers with sewn in cords to hold the cover around the shield. I was told that staples were fine and when I had my last shield check thats how the cover was on. I wanted to know it thats still acceptable?

The benefit of a drawstring cover is that you can remove the cover to wash it.

 

Staples are fine. Use a hard bristle hand brush to get muddy patches off.

Stretchy denim makes an excellent shield cover.

Staples are fine, and they'll go right into the blue barrel as long as you're manly with the staple gun.

 

We cover our shields with black duck cloth. Make sure it's got a cross. Masking tape and white spraypaint are your friends.

Your shield didn't fail for staples, it failed due to construction.

I didn't think it failed from the staples I was just double checking. I bought an edhellen shield (For 20 bucks so fuck yes me) and it has the standard drawstring cover on it. But sadly its blue so I gotta recover it black. And basic wal-mart acrylic spray paint works?

Any spray should work. You can also hand-paint with acrylics.

I glued my cover. Used super 77 spray adhesive and it's made it through several events without much peeling away.
