Harleypool Belt Buckle (Beginner Level)

One of my proudest Cos-Accomplishment was when I made my Harleypool belt buckle. It turned out perfect. I was surfing the web and decided HEY! I should come up with a logo for her. I literally google searched "Deadpool logo" and "Harley Quinn logo" and printed them to the size I'd need for a belt buckle. 

NEEDED:
Craft foam
Printer
Xacto knife
Wood Burning tool: https://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Arts-Crafts-Sewing-Wood-Burning-Tools/zgbs/arts-crafts/262717011
Acrylic Paint
Hot Glue/Contact Cement
Snaps/Velcro
Paint Sealer
Ave time: 30mins
 

 This is where I cut out the printed logos, cut one side out of Deadpool, and replaced it with the Harley logo. This was my template for what I was going for.

 SHH! Pretend this is the Harleypool logo since I forgot to to photo this step! Now you pop your template on some thick craft foam and trace it! I like to cut the lines with an Xacto knife, but don't cut all the way down, just go in about 2cm! Not far at all. This helps with the next step.

 The fun part is taking a wood burning tool to push down what needs to be lower. This raises everything else and gives it a really cool effect!! I suggest using it on Low/Med heat at first and always test it on some spare foam before you start going to town on the actual project! The reason I got such clean lines on the Harley diamonds is because I cut it a bit with the Xacto knife. Seriously this makes the lines a bit cleaner!

 The final touch is acrylic paint. I just needed the red,  the white, and a quick spray of acrylic paint sealer. To attach it you can either hot glue or contact cement (what I used) to put some Velcro (what I used)or snap to the back.   Seriously this is a simple, quick, and cheap project! This is honestly how I do A LOT of the details on my foam projects!
