With only a few days to go before Weekend at the Asylum (the large steampunk festival in Lincoln) I’ve started making something new!
I often find that a tight deadline can actually be beneficial as it keeps your ideas realistic and constrains your ambition somewhat so the piece doesn’t spiral into something very complicated.
In this case it’s a simple piece of shoulder armour made of the three pieces of leather with some light detailing and some straps to hold it in place.
I really liked using the green leather dye on my previous armour so wanted to use it again on something.
Here’s how the final piece will sit once it’s finished
And here’re the pieces drying having been dyed.
