    Mar 14, 2006, 2:31 AM - [step by step] My Braided Belt #1

    [Braided Belt]

    Thanks Cruzer, I've used your "step by step thread" to create my own belt

    Measures :
    - 20 braids (6mm)
    - 4 lace by braid (3mm a lace)
    - total : 13 cm width and 90 cm height


    Steps

    1. My waist is 90 cm, I need braids of 90 cm so I need laces of 120 cm

    4 X 20 = 80 laces of 120 cm
    => 9600 cm of laces (pfiuuuuu )


    2. Here we go for the braids.It takes me one week during the evening
    the result :




    3. The underpiece


    Measures :


    GLue


    The result:



    4. Cutting



    5. Painting
    - SAndpaper
    - Brown Acrilyc
    - SAndpaper again
    - Brown/orange acrylic
    - Sand paper
    Before/after




    6. Then the borders
    Measures


    7. Glue




    8. Painting


    9. 5 Holes for attachement

    10. A little lace




    Hope you like it.

    Pierre.

    That looks great. Are those regular 3 strand braids or those 4 strand braids?
