Hello, since articles are down it was suggested I share some things on here. I've been making chainmail from soda can tabs for near 7 years now, and since I finally got on my case to make proper galleries and tutorials I figured I should share them with fellow chain mail enthusiasts. Since I've created more than a dozen weaves each with 4-20+ steps I'll leave the link to the weaves page on personal site rather than trying to push them all onto a forum thread (once articles are back I'll be sure to post them asap). On the site you can also view a bit about the progression of the armor and weaves under History. Link to weaves =>

I make chainmail, most of the time out of soda cans.

I recently got a chance to see some tab maille up close, and I'm genuinely surprised at how good it looks. I thought it would look cheap and flimsy, but from 10 or more feet away, it looks as good as ring maille.

The kind I saw was assembled similarly to Euro 4.1 ring maille.

Your experimentations look good. Keep up the fun.

some of'em looks great, but others i really didnt liked...

maybe i will try one more simple to see how it'll look.

Get it Hot, hit it hard, thats how it has to be.
Be always ready, cause winter is coming, and with it, some things that were forgotten can come to live again!
