    Another First for Jax and Shado

    Well, haven't really seen this done this way, and the vision in my head is cool.

    so we'll see when its done.

    thus far = 3.5 hours.



    steps 1-3

    I like the fist red painting... the others are too 'toxic' IMO. However someone else could love it. How have you done it?

    Re: Another First for Jax and Shado

    My guess is:
    Vegetal tanned leather (3 or 3.5mm), unboiled for the male armor, boiled for the female.
    Dyed with cloth, and then acetone bleached using brush.
    If I'm correct, after your kiwi dye, you'll end with a polish oilskin and the armors will look brighter and a little more brown.
    (if I'm wrong, you're amazing at turning any material into leather )

    Very nice work here !

    I've never seen Medieval Mandos !!!

    they wont be midevil, or rennesannse at all. just trying new materials.

    as for material they are shoulder leather 1/4" thick

    neither are boiled, just run under the faucet in the kitchen

    only used 22o grit sandpaper at the moment, and a hammer and sparkplug

    I'm intrigued.!?

    I'm sure you have a colour in mind for the vest, but I think it looks awesome with that armor as it is.

    It's awesome the way it is with those colors. It's like desert camo/gear.

    okay, so ive always been honest with you guys to the point of pissing some of you off, but others are greatfull.

    please return the favor and let me know what you think of this project along the way.

    these types of comments are what i used back in 2002/2003 to make my first white mando...

    dude I really LIKE the leather, and I know from your previous work that when you are done with this (these) its gonna look good enough for film.

    I think the color is fine, maybe add a few blood splashes since it's leather, it wouldnt wash off like it would from standard armor.

    And some charring from laser fire and explosions.

    Re: Another First for Jax and Shado

    yeah, I like the last one, but darken the vest just a little, kind of like a little more brown, but only a little.

    And the bucket... that is AWESOME, I like the green visor, you gonna get yours from fleabay like I got my red one?

    Looks good Jay!!! I agree with Adonian though, a little darker on the vest perhaps...

    Looking good mate!

    Re: Another First for Jax and Shado

    thats pretty much the color of the vest. dying it seems to be a mystery with mixing dyes.
    i might just get the thing dirty, and see what happens

    soak it in coffee or tea to absorb the color, its cheap, and you can drink it
    Just do a test piece to time how long for the proper color.

    i like the first or the last.

    are you planning to keep the plates looking leather or are you going to work them to look like metal?

    Leather look is awesome and it's different in a kool way.
    I like the last one, but that's just me.
