Yay :D! It's almost finished!
And as always, some steps :D
|Drilling holes into the metal plates~|
|Then I sanded the surface.....and got silver fingers from the metal-dust xD|
|Added some colour with acrylics and sealed the plates with colourless varnish|
|Riveting straps :D|
|BIG THANX to my boys for helping with everything :)!!!!|
|Here you see the back-lacing and the holes for the plates~|
|The whole thing without plates~|
|Trying out how it looks before riveting..|
|First time trying it on with the plates.....feels good ^___^|
|I did change the back a little bit later (sewed the upper part tighter)|
Now I'm going to add some black lining and then...the main part will be finished^^!
I'm further planning to make "Beintaschen" (don't know the english word :P), bracers, a breast plate, a scabbard.....moaaarrr stuff.....
So stay tuned for more ;)
