ARMORERS WORKSHOP VOL 2: A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO MAKING HOURGLASS GAUNTLETS ARMORERS WORKSHOP VOL. 2 A Step-by-Step Guide to Making Hourglass Gauntlets by Peter Fuller Master Armorer Peter Fuller continues your education in the art of making stunning, historically accurate medieval armor in this original video production from Paladin Press. Building on the skills he imparted in the first volume of this series, Fuller 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 & meticulous craftsmanship, he teaches you how to weld & sand individual pieces into a strong assembly, anneal & shape brass to make it easy to work, chase fine lines into your piece for historical accuracy & polish even the smallest pieces of steel to a mirror finish consistent with the appearance of 16th-century armor. Fuller also demonstrates the all-but-lost art of fluting a piece of brass for decoration & teaches you how to raise the gauntlets knuckles into their distinctive domed shape. Every video includes full-scale patterns for the gauntlets & specialized armor-making tools, including the fluting tool. For information purposes only. Color, approx. 240 mins. total.Peter Fuller is a former curator of the historical arms & armor exhibit at the Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
