I’ve started making a new steampunk bracer. I’ve previously made a gauntlet but as that was more or less my first attempt it was a little crude.
This time round I wanted to make something a little more elegant so I’ve tried to concentrate on flowing lines and the finish of the piece.
I’ve also recently discovered that polishing metal makes it all shiny. Who knew?! To that end I’ve taken special care over the metal work. This comprises brass plate and copper brake pipe which I’ve soldered together.
Here’s a pic of the piece before it was dyed.
And here’re some further pics of the piece.
