Well, to be honest, I didnt make this. My friend made it for me. Though, I told him how to make it and since he made it for me I hade no reason to make my own since its pretty damn cool and I really like it.

Made from a piece of crap leather from tandy leather company, one of thier 5 lb bags that are cheap, dyed black. Leather lacing to keep the metal rings on, and the metal rings are of course keyrings lmao.
And the paint is I think either acrylic with water as medium or a specific leather paint, I cant be sure since the paint was all his idea.

You cants see the inside very well, but the lacing is done in a tree of life motif, which is pretty cool. And the lacing for the arms is just regular laces, nylon, from an old pair of boots.

Hope you guys like! It's easy to make, even if I didnt make this exact one lol.

Those are really cool. Nice job. I like the tree motif a lot.
