@uglyshayla  John has a membership at Tandy Leather Factory http://www.tandyleatherfactory.com/. There's one here in Austin where we live, and this is where he gets all of his tools and leather. The staff are really helpful and they even offer workshops to get you started in leather tooling and crafting. Leather comes in different thicknesses, called "grades" and is measured by ounces. The armor-grade leather range from 6-8 oz: http://www.tandyleatherfactory.com/home/9051-02.aspx

@Davinia: No! Use real leather! It's sooooooo cool! But it can get expensive, so it's understandable if you don't use real leather.

@ Angelicus: No, while I took a costume class at my uni, John has learned everything from a combination of the internet, friendly people from SCA, Tandy, and NERO, and mostly Trial and Error!

We're working on a website to include this kind of info so that other people won't have to work quite so hard as we did just to get the information. Of course, we don't do this for profit at all, and just enjoy helping people. Crafters/Costumers Unite!

Simply gorgeous. Thank you so much for posting a tutorial. What kind of resin did he use, just out of curiosity? Usually that stuff is pretty brittle and I'm surprised it could put up with being forced under the weight of clamps and stretching leather!

Oh my wow.  That is stunning!  Thank you so much for sharing this tutorial -- I see a cuirass in my near future. Smiley

One question.  What kind of wax did you use?  Is it paraffin, beeswax, something else?  Thanks!
