Chain armor is a medieval coat of chain mail consisting of metal rings sewn onto leather or cloth. Thought the times of spear running has already finished, it is still in requisistion. Now I`d like to tell you how to make it at home.
I began my work with the rings of aluminium wire, from which the bodice was made. I put it on several times and then it was diispersed.
Then I decided to try steel rings. I boight them in the shop in such packings.
I braid them as a string but in one gulp I braid not one row of rings but two: in one ring I braid 2-3 rings from upper row and put one seperated ring on it.
And hundreds time again. I listened to audiobook while doing this. While working I listened to the Harry Potter cyclus.
And here is the result!
The weight of the skirt is 3/5 kg, it is done by method 6 in 1. The upper part is done by method 4 in 1 and its weighr is near 3 kg
