Description: Master armorer Peter Fulller takes you step-by-step through the creation of the smaller, more detailed pieces that make up a pair of hourglass gauntlets, so called because of their tapering hourglass shape.
With customary attention to detail and meticulous craftsmanship, he teaches you how to weld and sand individual pieces into a strong assembly, anneal and shape brass to make it easy to work, chase fine lines into your piece for historical accuracy, and polish even the smallest pieces of steel to a mirror finish consistent with the appearance of 16th century armor.
Fuller also demonstrates the art of fluting a piece of brass for decoration and teaches you how to raise the gauntlets knuckles into their distinctive domes shape.
Includes full-scale patterns for gauntlets and specialized armor-making tools including the fluting tool.
