My Personal Gauntlets

95 Favourites
These are my personal gauntlets.

They're made from vegetable tanned leather. The copper playing is all etched with skulls and a bit of a forced patina.

The lady gauntlet features a forward facing Explorer's light.

Many more photos of this and other projects on my Facebook page for anyone interested.

I am disappointed. I thought I was clear from the first when I said I wanted functional. Beautiful work anyway.

With this much tech on those gloves, I expect them to run off to do what they want. :wow:

I'm not certain if I have asked this before:
Do you draw the grafics for the etchings yourself or do you have a source for these ornaments?

This skull pattern is something I found online, and it was a small image. I then edited it to cover a larger area in photoshop. 

A few things I have hand drawn, like the designs on my Torches simply because I can't transfer images on a cylindrical surface.

I see. Thank you for the insight.
I always find especially those dense floral ornaments you used for your etchings very appealing and am looking for similar stuff to etch myself.

I'll dig up the graphic I used and send it to you if you like. Message me your email address.
