    Those bracers look like something out of WETA studios this is going to be a most excellent costume

    If you use antqiue paste or gel, use medium brown and dark brown togther. If you use water based dye, mix different browns and apply using a mist spary bottle, not the laser jet spray.

    Stunning! Was your leather supplied to you in that thickness, or did you do it yourself? If so, what technique did you use? I've been trying for months to get any of my leather to harden, but I just can't figure it out.

    Murphoid you can get leather in different thickness's. I'm using about an 8 oz. If your tring to stiffen up your leather, heat up some water up to 180 degress I believe it is, (just the point where water starts to boil. Soak your leather in it for 10 secs. Form your leather and let it dry. It should harden.

    Ok getting ready to do the knife sheves for the throwing blades, I will do 2 methods, on is applying a thin coat of sliver over the handles while just using something like rub n buff on the blades, or just rub n buff the whole things. These are the blades I will be using
