Only a little. Tbh, haven't the foggiest where to start but love welding bits of stuff together which although it can be a bit aimless, is very relaxing. Love to be able to properly work metal tho'.

Incredible. Hoping to be able to do this one day....
You're a true inspiration.

Hoping? Have you played with metal before?

aaaah, yah! i do love the textured bits, i didn't even notice them until you pointed it out on the helm yesterday. it would be a wonderful addition to a purely artist, sculpture piece :D

Thanks for saying so! i like to leave some of the hammer marks on there {proof its made by hand, and its less work (you just have to know where to leave the hammer marks, like spots i can't get into the grooves with sand paper)}

god have mercy on my soul and make me a tutorial to teatch me your secret =D

i actually did take pictures step by step watching the growth of the piece and what to hammer when, should i desire to replicate the piece, they never turn out exactly the same but that doesn't particularly bother me.

so to get to the point i might be able to hook you up with something resembling a tutorial. i looked at your shop update pics, i'm pretty sure you have all the tools, you may have to make a stake or two but you know what to use, i figure all you need is the when and where to hammer.

if there is something im missing i make it! :D
But it would make me the hapyest man on earth if i could see those pictures! :D

ok you've got mail :)
your an enthusiastic person about armour and steel like i am it seems, your also serious about your armouring, you have the tools and the will to take the time on a piece that a piece really needs. Not that i know you very well but your product doesn't lie, just wanted to let you know i don't do this for people unless they already have the skill and the passion to do this work. I'm excited to see what you come up with with these new tricks in your tool belt!

I Thank you VERY much! i dont think you understand how much this means to me! =D
I will have to see when i have time to make my first face, BUT im exited for it! and thanks to you i see how you worked it and i can "imitate" it to get a hang of it :)
is it ok if i you the face as well? (im not so good att making up faces myself haha!)

if you have any questions about armour your welcome to ask them, and it's not so often i give other help with armour what to think about especilly when reacreating it, lots of small things peopel miss to make the armour look good! and if you where to make more armour with your skills you would out class me! :)
