Birchman Belt Buckles - Pics


Hey guys,

I've built myself a couple belt buckles. The first one I made is obviously styled after the Begins buckle, and I made it out of several carefully cut layers of 1/8' inch birch wood. The second one I made is the lid from a soapdish that Tom(clevelandfx) sent me.

I was expecting the Begins buckle to turn out better than the soapdish buckle, but now I'm liking the soapdish one better. what do you guys think?

Both have Krylon Gilded Brass with several layers of Krylon Triple thick glaze. The batlogo on the soapdish is craftfoam.

What can I use to "scratch-proof" either of these?

Is there any scratchproof kind of coating I can put on these?

Re: Belt buckles


Those are really nice, man. I especially love the soapdish one.

What kind of belt would an oval buckle like that close? Pouches? Or a capsule belt?

 :lol Instead of bats in the cave scene there'd be woodpeckers, instead of fighting ninja's he'd fight loggers, and the villain that threatens Gotham....

I could go on and on. :)

Woodpeckerman Begins. That could just get really dirty. :lol And instead of dealing with guano I'd be dealing with white bird-stains all over my equipment... hehe

Does clear resin come in a spray form of any kind?
