A lot of this seems cramped in together and hard to read. Is there a possibility of it being typed out with some clearer drawings? This is an AMAZING tutorial, and I intend to try it out.

I'm making mine out of a combination of materials, a paper base/pattern. then HARD cardboard for the grill and transmutated grill. plastic plates for the shoulder plates, and then I'm putting paper mache over all of it and covering it with a shiny cover
it's the least bulky possible, and has a lot of mobility

oh and I'm using the leg from a pair of black tights to go on my arm because it's skin tight

i am making it as well i finished all exept the hand, i made some little changes which i thought would be closer to the original, i showed it to my friends and they were all like O.O
for me the costs were like zero because we had everything at home, the only thing is that i completely used up all glue and now we have to buy a new one... XD
also for painting i used black and white acrilic mixed with some silver to give it some shine, i do not like the idea of walking around with a super shining arm due to metallic spray paint..

Does anyone have tips on how to harden and seal the cardboard without the use of fiberglass or resin? I just want to know if there is a safer and/or easier way before I potentially destroy/warp my shape.

wow... cutty things. xD I think I saw the picture of this.. my friend was all "and that's CARDBOARD!" and now I see it on the forums... I agree with the chrome-paint instead of gray.

Either way, wonderful job. :P

i got bored one night so i made an automail arm out of fun foam i had laying round my room...used a mix of white glue and a bit of warm water to seal it up a bit, painted it with bout 3 layers of silver paint, and attached it all to an under armor shirt i had

that's the link to the album...it fit nicely under a form fitting jacket, and had almost full flexibility, like, i couldn't raise my arm straight above my head...
