Dragon of Darkness Gloves by CraftyMutt Dragon of Darkness Gloves by CraftyMutt
If you'd like to learn how to make something like this check out the Scale Mail Tutorial Page and any feedback you can give to improve it is massively appreciated :D there's even a pattern for sale now as well as the free tutorial!

From devouring the deepest night sky the darkness dragon grows scales of the pure black and hides in the shadows. But now and then he sheds his skin, and hey presto, you have a pair of fabulous gloves! (just kidding, they're plain old aluminium scales, but if the darkness dragon did shed his skin near me I'd make some properly fabulous gloves)
No dragons were harmed in the making of these gauntlets! They're artificially imitated by knitting black scales onto a soft yarn base for maximum stretchy-comfyness with your uber awesome dragon look. I'd like to make some extra long, fully scaled all the way round (minus palms) gloves in all black some day I really love how they look :)

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!

Thank you so much for the free tutorial ^^ I was able to make my own glove. Its not as long but its mostly black with only a few scales blue or purple. These are amazing and I love your work so much <3

I think this is my favorite color combination in your gallery. The black looks so mysterious and sleek.

I can imagine a full body one piece scale mail suit would look awesome for a human-dragon cosplay.

Lovely as always!
Random question~
have you tried using the technique on the fingers of gloves?
(i wonder if it would look cool on a sweater...)
