1) Wrap a layer of the tape, sticky side out, around the gun's barrel/body, leaving the handle and back of the gun free so that you can pull the gun from the holster.

2) Wrap a second layer of tape, sticky side down around the first (the sticky sides of the two layers should stick together, so that you have non-sticky surfaces on the interior and exterior of your holster).

3) The rough holster is now complete. Cut it down to the size/shape you want, as necessary, or to remove any tape edges sticking out. You can now add additional layers of tape to thicken it up, add details with other media (like the modeling compound of your choice), etc.

An alternative method of making a holster is to cut out two identical flat panels, in the shape of the holster, from some sort of thin medium, and then glue/sew them together around all the edges but the top, to create a pocket for the gun to slide into.

Hope that more detailed explanation makes sense. And, again, you can use these techniques to make sword/knife sheaths as well.

Hey thanks,
I know you said the tape thing is easy, but for some reason I just can't wrap my head around it. Punn intended

That's mighty impressive work for your first shot at a custom; the weathering on the trenchcoat is particularly nice.

As far as making gun holsters go, probably the easiest method is to contruct them out of tape (sword/knife sheaths can be done in a similar manner). Basically, you wrap the tape around the guns (make sure the sticky side of the tape is NOT on the inside of the holster, or you guns will stick to it something fierce) to make the holster shape, and then cut/modify it into the form you want. It's pretty easy to do.
