« on: Feb 24, 2012, 04:53 AM »
It's taken me a couple of months to find the buckles I wanted for my belt, but I finally found them yesterday!! So, I spent some time today working out the messurements and drew up a mock- up for the belt. Now, keep in mind that the colors used are for contrast and depth, not the colors I will be using. I havent decided on the colors for my plates for sure, so I am not sure what colors I will use on the belt.
The whole thing will be made out of leather. The diamond goes againts the back.


These are the actual buckles I will be using


I will keep you posted on progress. I hope to have it cut out tomorrow and have started the tooling.

Do you believe in tool gremlens.... I do, you know, they are kinda like sock gremlens, they come in and steal the exact tool you are needing to use....

So, this was to be the first leather project I was to work on since I moved into our new house about a year ago. So , I unpacked all my leather working tools and...... my beveler is missing.... not just one of them, but all three of them... what the?

So I have all the parts cut, and the pattern drawn on them, but will have to wait until later this week to pick up a beveler. :J pics later tonight.

Here is what the belt I have been working on is looking like now-a-days

Little closer look


I am in the process of doing some tooling on the sintra plate on this. The words on the plate say "Krayt" down the left, and "Naast" down the right. They will be tooled in that strip and the center rectangle will be tooled similar to the way I did the backgrounds of the other pieces I did. I still need to dye it as well...

Also... kinda the right and kinda the wrong place for these, but they ARE my boots sooo...

Here is what I have been doing with my boots!

I still need to do the toe spikes and the heal plate. And the actual paint job of coarse...

I am going to dye it. Probably a two tone dye job. I have a really nice silver and a nice black. I have mixed those in the past and made a great looking gunmetal color. So thinking gunmetal and silver.

What did you use to attach the armor plates to the boots? I have nearly the same boots, mine are a bit taller, but I'm thinking of doing close to the same as far as the plates go. My only worry is comfort after attaching. Meaning that if I bolt them on, I don't want to worry about something digging into my legs or feet from the inside of the boot.

I used post screws, they are usually flat low profile heads. I dont even notice them inside the boot.

Where did you find the buckles? They look like seat belt clips. I need some for a mad Max build.

Sorry vv, I just saw this question. I got the buckles from a local junk yard. They are seat belt clips from a 1979 International Travelall.
