Putting together a kit - Feinman - 03-22-2017

Bought the Daniyal shield "Kraken" and modified the paint job with casein.  Have decided on a round gorgon effigy in NuGold for the front which I will beat into low relief.

Have had a little time to work on effigy:

After once over, I will decide if I want to anneal and polish things up further.

Painted my Deepeeka brass helmet with red casein.  I LIKE this helmet; it fits my head very well.

I have around 300 brass Deepeeka scales; I was going to use them on my twined T&Y armour, but I think I will use them to make a scale gorget to wear with my spolas. I think this was sometimes done, from what I've seen..

Looking good!
What's the weight on that shield? I'm working on one now but it's still 20lbs.


RE: Putting together a kit - Feinman - 03-26-2018

Hey!  How have you been?  Smile  I believe it weighs about 17.5 lbs; that's what it was advertised as, iirc.  I am going to have to buy a scale!   Sad
I'm looking forward to pics of your Greek impression!

I've been good, thanks!  I'm slowly putting it together.  You can see it at the "other" place. Smile  I inherited some of Matt's stuff but what I really need is for Jeff to make me a trifoil ciurass!
