WS2 coming..

I intended to make the next WS2 shield using a green leather edging, but I’m having to switch it up, and I’ll be applying a creme coloured leather edge instead.

It should look quite nice against the stained back.

Not the best pic, but does show the lightness of the leather

green leather…

I had a section of green leather sitting around, so I figured I’d

prep some strips for use on the border of a wee shield later..

Could look pretty cool!

My heater..

My shield (shield#1) is coming along nicely.

It’s kind of a prototype-in-progress, and I’m learning a lot whilst practicing on my shield.

Here, the leather work is finished, and I’m feeling it out..

I painted the rivets over…for no good reason, except maybe it was easier..

Molly’s shield

Well, I promised Molly a shield, ans so here’s the humble beginning ..

I feel good about this one..

Hey!

Well, it’s March 14th, and I’m writing to just say welcome to what I hope will be a cool place to see some neat shield creations…

I’m currently ramping up production, and have a few shields in the works.

These are more or less, trial runs/pilots and won’t be for sale.

The first to come out of the press, will end up being mine.

I’ve also got a kite in the works, and that one will belong to my son, Levi.

Please stay tunes, and drop a line if/when you can!

Cheers,

Rich
