First draw a design pattern to build your glove this guide uses pictures from several different gloves I've made. Remember for each movie there is a different glove. This pattern is for the 5th glove

You can buy a "do-it-yourself" blade set from www., or make your own as follows.

Buy four cheap dollar stainless steel knives, use the cut out pattern of your blade to make sure you bought the right one.

Image for Step 4

Grind the knives into shape. On every glove I've made I found that this is the hardest part, you can simply buy them if you choose.

Cut the cooper sheet into the shape with the scissors and the blueprint cut-outs. The backplate can be copper or to be more movie-accurate, it could be brass

Image for Step 6

Shape the fingers by using a broom stick and your rubber hammer.

Image for Step 7

The final shape should fit your fingers.

Image for Step 8

On the tip of the fingers, make sure the tips are rounded and not flat

Image for Step 9

Test your drilled holes, trust the diagram you created.

Image for Step 10

The five fingers should match the holes on the backplate, make sure all the holes align for the rivets

Image for Step 11

Testing the blades, the inner round part should match the shape of the finger tip.

Image for Step 12

Cut stripes of copper and solder them to the bottom finger pieces

Image for Step 13

Another hard step is the soldering of the stainless steel. Here the steel has to be heated more than the copper. Make sure you heat the steel/copper, and not the solder.

Image for Step 14

Test your pieces on the glove in case any adjustments need to be made.

Image for Step 15

The solder does not have to be clean and even, rough look is better

Image for Step 16

Use the rivets to hold the lower parts of the fingers to the backplate.

Image for Step 17

The glove could be any desired color, use the sand paper to give a rough look to the leather

Image for Step 18

To make it look more rough burn the globe with the propane torch, not too much just give it a crispy look

Image for Step 19

Rivet the upper part of the fingers

Image for Step 20

And finally rivet everything to the glove, make the holes on the glove according to your test fits. You are done!
