MEDIEVAL COSTUMES

from The Drama Teacher's Resource Room


Medieval armor can be made by spray-painting a knitted garment silver! Use a knit stitch (knit every row, as opposed to knit a row, purl a row) to create the item and spray with Flora-Life (florist supply store). Flora-Life has potent fumes. Use a respirator or spray outdoors. To add detail to a garment create the texture with a glue gun and then paint the dried glue with silver or gold fabric paint or markers. You can also create great texture by using the same technique to highlight a pattern in the fabric or trim.
