I sourced some mdf disks (10cm diameter) of varying thickness - 6mm too heavy, 3mm Just right.

I used a small dremel to route the edges smoothly.
They were then primed, dried, and sanded in preparation for spraying.
I started the designs and masking areas needed, Then the masking was cut carefully.
I had tried to get the Kerux lamen tidy, but failed to cut the curves of the mask cleanly (I'm old and my hands shake lots lol) - Even though it was fun to paint these... I had a backup plan should the lamens not turn out cleanly. Anyway, on with the process!
Then spraying over the mask next.

These could be done on a very cheap budget if you can get the masking cleanly cut before spraying - You just need the disks, primer, and small cans of spray.
If you can afford to, you can get circular printouts made of the lamen designs from various sites (I used stickeryou.com), mount them on the mdf circles and then spray with lacquer after. Check out the Kerux design on these printouts (These are vinyl prints and not paper.
The collars for the Golden Dawn lamens were supplied by Seshet Designs who was able to make them to exact specifications and also supplied the velcro mounts (so the collars could be washed) - Will update with pictures soon.
