    You can probably put armor over them, but the surface doesn't look flat so that would make it difficult. Depending on what material the blue/white areas are made out of, you might be able to just paint them. They are sweet looking gloves.

    Hi all, so i'm trying to start my armor and found WOF templates. But I don't have access to a printer and when I went somewhere to print them, the templates were waaaaaay too big. Any suggestions?

    Sounds good about the gloves!

    The templates should have different size downloads, like BobaFettSmall, or something. I did the smallest and had to modify them a little bit to fit me. You could also make a duct tap mannequin of your torso and make templates from that.

    Can you show me where you got the templates?

    haven't been on here for a bit, thought I'd share some half updates... Started a pattern for my flak vest and came up with an interesting custom belt design that I shall share with you all once I have it drawn up a bit better hoping to have the flak vest done this week and possibly repaint my gloves that should be arriving soon.

    And there's my update. Not much done quite yet but getting there

    LoL! You could try dishing with a ball pin hammer (or whatever they are called) and then planishing. Research dishing.

    OK so I got a sketch done of the belt idea I mentioned last night. Not sure where I'm gonna put the pushes quite yet but if anyone has any ideas, feel free to draw them onto the belt or share the thought

    Ordeyn: bal pin hammer sounds good too will have to see what I got laying around.

    I dunno anything about Darth Mule, sorry. Find someone you know who can sew to help you. My mom helped me a ton. Armor designs look sweet. Are you going to put any knee plates on?

    definitely got knee plates, I just never drew them in the last pic because I was so focused on the belt lol As for the vest, I just decided to have someone make it for me... I would probably ended up spending more if I attempted to do it myself

    Wow, I've been doing some research for weapons and came across this thread. It seemed like it was moving along great, and then no updates. Jangoismyfav- if you still read these forums, I'd love to see an update....
