Shining Silver Fists by CraftyMutt Shining Silver Fists 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!

These gloves are knitted with a mix of the mirror silver and brushed silver scales, giving a really spangly effect that I love X3 I'd really like to design and make a dragon art-plush (the scales kind of prevent them being normal plushes) with this mix of scales, he'd be so pretty :D
The scales in this one are pointing towards the fingers, which I don't get asked to do as often, but has a really nice effect, and they also go all the way around, minus the palm area.

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!

So would a place like Hobby Lobby have the scales?

To get scales you usually have to look on chain-mail craft sites, though I think a few beading sites have suitable scales too.
I get mine from TheRingLord.com, they do very good prices for a decent range of colours :)
