[ Tomb Raider 2018 Movie Boy's Brigade Buckle]

By Sara Croft
Reference
What I needed:

- An interlocking buckle
- A boys brigade logo (i got a brooch)
- Polymer clay
- Gold spray paint
- Metal file

In order to make a functional buckle, I needed to copy the brooch design, first thing i thought of was polymer clay. There are other ways i could have achieved this, maybe with resin but i did this with other projects before and polymer sticks very well to metal without any adhesives.

I bought a boys’ brigade brooch and an interlocking buckle


I filed down the bu
ckle’s original design as much as i could off the interlocking clasp buckle.



I pressed the inner part in the centre of the brooch to copy the design



It came out really nice and after i cleaned up the edges it looked seamless.



Next I pressed the bigger buckle part into the brooch to copy the outer design with the lettering on it.



Bottom view



After I cleaned it up, it looked seamless too.



I baked both halves in the oven and it was perfect, stuck on there for good as seen below.



I spray painted it gold.




and that's it! It looks great! and works like a dream.
