The title says it all. Can i make an half persian 3-1 and be able to wear it so it has enough flexibility? Which sheet would this be? I will be using 16ga 1/4 galvy.


I make stuff!

I believe that the tut for HP 3-1 Sheet 6 is what you're looking for, Snake.

I haven't actualy made it but it seems to me the it'd be really flexible one way but no the other


I've been doing a lot of abstract painting lately, extremely abstract. No brush, no paint, no canvas. I just think about it.

Dr. T made a vest out of sheet 6 and sheet 5, with E4-1 on the sides to give more flexibility.

If you rotate the HP 3-1 sheet 6, you can make a shirt that will have sufficient amount of stretch to be put on and taken off (without any additional expansions). You can see an example of this in the gallery:

Before you start on the large project, though, make sure the ring AR is sufficientl Wink

Yeah, I think the good doctor's right - You're using the wrong size rings for hp3-1sheet 6. It makes a good hp3-1 chain, though.

If you want to use HP3-6, and make it kinda flowy, I'd suggest using 3/8" ID with your 16ga. It'll still be thick, but have plenty of flex.

I've got a piece made with 16ga 23/64" ID (1/64" smaller than 3/8") and it feels really cool.
