Hi folks, i just wanted to share with you some progress pics on the trim for the blade gauntlet. Here they are:
What i have found that is interesting is there is a fabric glue i love to use called "fabric tac" for those of us sewing challenged this stuff is a god send. It even survives the washer and dryer! I took a chance and tried it out on the fosshape and it performs beautifully, just as if i have sewn the edges the "fabric tac" works in the same fashion, allowing me to heat set the fosshape. I even tried it here on the gauntlet, gluing the fosshape to the gauntlet- then once the glue dried (which was under like 4 min) i lightly heat set it with a heat gun. As you can see it worked out beautifully.
I intend on using this technique alot for the legs and feet portions of the armor.
