Gauntlets blueprints by Astanael Gauntlets blueprints by Astanael
As requested, theses are the blueprints for the gauntlets I've made (See Larp Armor v3)

Use collet (3-4mm hard leather) for the plates and soft leather for the straps. Adjust the size of the plates and straps to your hand. Do not splat the rivets too much unless you want to plays a lego character.

Because I'm a perfectionist (or a masochist ?), I made the gloves myself. If you're lazy or smart, use thermal resistant gloves from the local wallmart, they are quite comfortable. The gloves are only fixed to the L0 and L1 pieces.

I know this is medieval style, but do you think this would look good for a female steampunk character (she's not very feminine, I must say.. :XD: )? I would make adaptations, of course...

Well... these gautlets have a very "heavy" look. You can see them clearly on my v3 armor.
I would say, using gears, brass decorations and a thinner leather they would look great on steampunk.

If you have the courage to paint of find painted leather, try to go for the mettalic look, This should do the trick.

Thanks for the tip!
Now, metalic painted leather should look like leather or is it suposed to pass for metal?
Gosh, I wanna make those things but I don't even know where to start >.<

But you've given me a good idea... I have to make a metalic knee protection (I don't know the exact name of this in English, sorry :/) and I think the painted leather (being well painted) will do the job! I'll check it out and see if I can do it. Do you happen to know any good tutorial on this on the web?

Well, look at this : [link]
The torned and scratched plates are painted leather. I found the rendering excellent.

Is the name you're grasping for "kneepad" (joelheira) ?
I don't have any tutos with me rigth know. Maybe try Trollcalibur ([link]) or further search on deviantart.
This site is french but google can translate it for you.

Woooooow.... that troll armor is amazing! The metal parts are so convincing! I could never tell it was actually leather! :O

Yes! kneepad, thank you! :XD:
I'm gonna try and see if I can understand Trollcalibur (as a student of languages, I don't trust automatic translations :P... but I don't understand French at all, so... Google translation it is. :/)

Thanks you very much! ^.^

I have a feeling that it will =)
Btw, if I print it out on an A4 piece of paper, will it have the sizes you used? ^^

I don't know about printing on A4. The only thing that matter in this blueprint is the proportions between pieces. I'm afraid you will have to test several scale to find out the correct output ratio.

Normaly, the distance between points beta1 and beta2 should be equal to your palm width. Mine is 5 inch. I suggest you to test the assembly with carton before cutting the leather.

Oh btw, only cut the straps when you have assembled the plates. Except for the buckled one, they need to be tightly sized.
