A Step-by-Step Guide to Making Hourglass Gauntlets
by Peter Fuller
Master Armorer Peter Fuller continues your education in the art of making stunning, historically accurate medieval armor in this original video production from Paladin Press. Building on the skills he imparted in the first volume of this series, Fuller takes you step-by-step through the creation of the smaller, more detailed pieces that make up a pair of hourglass gauntlets, so-called because of their tapering hourglass shape. With customary attention to detail and meticulous craftsmanship, he teaches you how to weld and sand individual pieces into a strong assembly, anneal and shape brass to make it easy to work, chase fine lines into your piece for historical accuracy and polish even the smallest pieces of steel to a mirror finish consistent with the appearance of 16th-century armor. Fuller also demonstrates the all-but-lost art of “fluting” a piece of brass for decoration and teaches you how to raise the gauntlet’s knuckles into their distinctive domed shape. Every video includes full-scale patterns for the gauntlets and specialized armor-making tools, including the fluting tool. For information purposes only. Color, approx. 240 mins. total.
