This is one of my favourite commissions, a design requested by
for part of a pangolin costume, and I really recommend a trip through her tumblr
to meet all sorts of wonderful characters and all kinds of beautiful art!
PLEASE NOTE: This bronze colour has been discontinued
so there will never be another pair like it. There are new bronze scales, however they are generally brighter and more brown, if that makes any sense (this old bronze is more metallic).
In response to questions: if you'd like to learn how to make stuff like this check out the Scale Mail Tutorial Page
for a free tutorial on a super simple to add scales and any feedback you can give to improve it is massively appreciated
there's even a pattern for sale now as well as the free tutorial!
I personally really like this sandy yarn I got in for it, and using the new style bronze scales were great to use since I've been unable to get hold of any bronze scales for ages! Due to the nature of variegated yarn the colour of the yarn bit up the wrists will vary between pairs, and doesn't even match within the pair, but they look more natural that way
Want a custom made pair of your own design? Custom scale orders can be taken through CraftyMutt's Etsy
through purchasing one of the standard custom orders or sending a message about something even more special like having scales all round the wrist!
You can alternatively order your own basic custom pair and find out even more information at CraftyMutt's Scale Mail Page
where you'll see links to the information I need to make your own unique personally designed gauntlets and pouches
You can also see CraftyMutt on Facebook
for more pictures, updates on what I'm doing and general crafty stuff!
WHAT DID I EVEN, 5000 VIEWS?
I've been uploading stuff here for years and never had a reaction like this, or even thought I'd ever attract a reaction like this! I don't know what to do, I'm trying to keep up with comments and questions but I can only just manage only for ones with specific questions or ideas that I can reply to!
Can I just put here a blanket thanks to everyone who's favourited and commented so kindly!
EVERYBODY IS SO AWESOME THANK YOU
If I had the time and money I would knit you all a pair of gloves, but I can barely keep up with the few orders I already have so maybe someday if I get rich and famous and earn enough money to never work again you should take me up on that offer! (I'll advertise here if that happens)
