So here it is! My Captain America Original Shield tutorial. I had a bunch of requests for it, and after much procrastination, I finally got around to it. Sorry! DX
I really hope it helps. Please send me a photo of you and/or your shield if you use it, or if you make another prop or shield with the same technique! I would really love to see all of your epic pieces!
Click "download" to the left to get an even larger version than full view. It's so hard to get pictures of metallic inks right, I have a bunch of things I've given up on using the scanner for... Bummer since it takes longer to fix the photography, but hopefully it still looks good enough to use!

Please leave me a comment if you use the stock, I'd love to see what you did with the image... or add it to your favorites if you liked it. I'll be sure to keep adding more material if I know it's helpful! Thanks
