So, I am finally kicking it into High Gear. Mostly because my beloved husband wants me to start his armor, so I must finish my brothers. Tonight I did all the interior articulation for the chest, did the front strapping and buckles and the side strap. Sadly, I bought 1 inch buckles, and I need 2 inch ones for the size strapping. That means back to Tandy's Leather I go.
Hopefully tomorrow night I will get the side buckles on, the will do the pauldron articulation and figure out the axe-cover attachment method.
So, In addition to everything else, my dear brother refuses to make a decision about color. I may leave it plain, or it may become black. I am also thinking about tooling either a Tree of Life or a simple celtic knot onto the breast plate. What do you think? Leave it tan, or make it black with a green design?
