Bracers of the Void by OrangeMoose Bracers of the Void by OrangeMoose
I made these for a friend as an attempt to continue practicing leatherworking. I was aiming for something a casting class would wear (think Warlock). He requested that they be blue (everyone wants blue! XD). I am really proud of these as I stitched leather for the first time (saddle stitch...very sturdy). It was a lot of work but very rewarding. Definitely my favorite work so far.

EDIT: Thanks so much to :icontoboe: for suggesting these for a DD (she has some awesome work, check her out!)! When I logged in and saw my inbox I thought there must be some sort of system error. I am still really new to leatherworking so I am very flattered from all of your nice comments. This is just a hobby for me between work and school, but I hope to one day become professional enough to do commissions. Thanks, everyone!

I would but I don't think people would pay 200+ dollars for a pair of bracers >.< They just take so long to make.

Just leather and leather stamps with a mallet with acrylic paint to finish it off. If you look at my leather armor tutorial it's pretty much a similar process =)

ohh alright, I´ll try :)
I did a crown lately, but it looks horrible..
the leather was pretty thick (3mm), but that shouldn´t be the problem as all of the people I asked said they´d use it too...
it looks so crappy around the edges, even after smoothing. :/ I guess I´ll have to work on my technique for a long time before creating something amazing as you do :)

Hm, I use leather scissors to cut the leather, but other people say that a box cutter or x-acto blade work best for them. It does take some practice. My first pieces looked pretty scraggly around the edges, but I used them for the back of my leather chest armor so no one would notice XD
