So you got yourself some nice clone armor, and you want to make a pauldron?
Well, in early 2005 we didn't have much references to go by, and now we got some professional grade tutorials out there, especially on But for old time's sake, I kept my simple gallery open to show how I did mine.

  • Tools:
  • A regular "black" Storm Trooper Pauldron.
  • Paper foam sheet (Hard) 0.5- 0.8 inches thick.
  • Exacto knife.
  • Double edged tape (Strong).

First cut the shape of the pouldron as shown in the picture. Yes, I know now that we have references that are a little more clear, I realise the shape is off... but you can also cut it out in the correct shape if you wish, the point is that this is how you will be taping it on the black pauldron.

After you cut out the pieces, apply the 2 sided tape to the pauldron and press the cut sheet of foam on to it... Viola, 15 minutes of work and you got yourself a decent shoulder piece. Enjoy!
