Armour/Making Period Leather Armour

Armour-Grade leather is basically boiled leather. In this tutorial I will tell you how to make a coat of leather scales, with 1/4 sleeves. If you wear a gambeson under it, it should be SCA legal. If it isn't, then, well you'll have a really cool motorcycle shirt.

Materials[edit | edit source]

  • A large pot that you aren't afraid of ruining.
  • Lots of eight ounce vegetable tanned leather, {or higher thicknesses, but no thicker than 12 ounce}
  • Leather needle, and thick wax coated thread. Fishing line will do fine as well.
  • Something that will easily cut the leather that you chose.
  • Leather punch.
  • A stopwatch, for timing the leathers, boiling time.
  • A spider scoop, or the thing you use to get deep fried food out of the boiler.

Starting the Pattern[edit | edit source]

Start by getting a pattern for a loose shirt with sleeves down to slightly above or below your elbows. A pattern for a chainmail shirt will work good as well, perhaps better. When you have that, make the pattern out of flexible, but tough leather, or thick cloth, like canvas. When you have the shirt sewn, try it on. You will cover every square inch on the outside of this, except the armpit, where you may want to put chainmail. How to make chainmail can be found in another of our tutorials Making Period Mail.

Making the Scales[edit | edit source]

Now you can start making the scales. Obviously you won't be able to do it all in one day. It would probably be a good idea to start out with a simple rectangle, about three inches by an inch and a half. Once you get better you can make "dragon scales". Punch two holes in the top of each scale with the largest punch on the rotary punch, then punch two more a quarter inch beneath those. Fill up about a five gallon bucket. You can find full size patterns for several different scales here

Boiling the Scales[edit | edit source]

Start boiling the water, depending on how many scales you are going to make about a couple gallons should be fine. When the water is simmering, hot, or boiling {your choice} you put the leather scales in until they have shrunk, and are rubbery. You will need to use the timer for this, and experiment. But remember that the longer you leave them in, the thicker, and harder they will get; additionally the longer the leather boils the more brittle it will become once dried. More than 60 seconds of immersion is not recommended as it tends to make the leather unsuitable for armor.

After they have been boiled, you will have to lay them out, perhaps on a cookie sheet, with another cookie sheet on top to keep them flat. After they are dry, thread the needle through the holes your prepunched, and start sewing them to your leather shirt. Make sure to overlap them. You won't beand sew it on there, if you are going to try to use it for SCA battle.

Making Vambraces[edit | edit source]

To make vambraces you simply measure the greatest and least circumferences of your forearm, and make a conical pattern, with holes every half inch or so. Make it about two inches bigger than needed, to allow for the shrinkage. When you have boiled the leather long enough, wrap a towel around your arm, and use your arm as a mold for the leather. It may help if you have another person help you.

Step Six:

Leather carving and tooling.

This takes a few steps and some practice.

First you need to case your leather.

By getting it damp you can easier transfer your designs to the leather with a simple scribe. My first few I did with the rounded edge of my beveling tool while waiting for my stylus to show up in the mail.

Here I personally do not fully case my leather, I only get it samp enough to slightly soften the top layer. I save doing a ful casing for when I'm ready to do my tooling.

Once your image is transferred, you can lightly score your lines with a knife. This works a bit better while it's still a touch damp. Depending on how much you want your edges to stand out, or if you're going to paint the lines with dye, your project may not need this step.

When I'm actually ready to tool the design, that is when I then finished casing my leather. I get my best results wetting both sides. But don't fully saturate your leather. If it's too wet, your edges will be soft when you bevel. At least for me, I keep it just barely wet enough to get a little floppy. First I run a beveler around all of my edges.

This let's me get a fairly decent impression quickly and see how the leather is behaving, and gives me a good look at the design so I can decide if I want to do any backgrounding. Keeping it at the semi damp casing through all this time still leaves me the option if I want to fully harden it when I'm done tooling by finishing saturating the leather after I'm done carving.

What our clients are saying

“From the second I saw it, I was in absolute love with the masterpiece he had created for me. To say I was in awe, was an absolute understatement. It was simply, singularly and uniquely a work of art. The craftsmanship was unmatched. The attention to detail goes beyond anything imaginable. This was and continues to be the proudest possession I own.

The reception to it was overwhelming. In a short time, the armor, Samuel and Prince Armory and myself had gone super viral. The images were shared everywhere, including The Stan Winston School of Character Arts! Samuel’s work had ignited the internet, and deservedly so.”

Carlos Blanchard

The Dark Knight (Medieval Batman Armor)

“We hashed out the design and then with a goal in mind, a year later I received my beautiful armor. Since that day, I have had images of me suited up as King Aquaman go viral on the internet, I have been asked and have traveled all over the world as a celebrity cosplayer and have even had products made using my likeness while wearing the armor. I have worn the suit over a hundred times and for hours on end in all kinds of weather and it holds up today as well as it did several years ago when I received it. I cannot boast enough about how amazing Samuel’s work is.”

Rick ~The True Aquaman~ Stafford

King Aquaman (Medieval Aquaman Armor)

“I’d been following Prince Armory for years, never failing to be amazed by the artistry of their creations. My experience was fantastic – he kept in touch with updates and photos throughout the building process, always inviting my input.

When the rig arrived, it proved to be more impressive than I would have though possible: solidly crafted, minutely detailed, and it fit like the proverbial glove. It never fails to make a huge splash with crowds, and people constantly ask questions and request photos. And it is a lot more than an amazing-looking outfit: it’s a fully-functional suit of armor that lets me move, perform, and fight freely and effectively. And possibly coolest of all, as a custom creation there will never be another one like it. It’s a one-of-a-kind piece of art… and when I wear it, I am too!”

Robert Isaacson

Ranger Knight Armor

“It was an amazing experience all around. Thank you so much for the opportunity to own your art. The beauty and quality of your craftsmanship is second to none. You have worked on three separate projects for me, and I could not have been happier with each of them. You are a true Master Artisan. Keep up the excellent work and I hope to work on another project with you soon”

Robert Warunek

Medieval Darth Vader, Medieval Boba Fett, & Luke Vader

“When I first seen the completed custom armor I was awestruck! I left full creative control to them and was not let down AT ALL.

Shortly after I received it my wife and I attended the Festival – Needless to say, my wife started to get annoyed at how often I was being stopped to get pictures taken. I was even stopped by a Festival worker who asked, “I just gotta ask, is that a Prince Armory piece?” I was taken back a little by this but managed to respond back with a yes. She replied back with, “I thought so. It’s absolutely amazing!” I knew it was! I was the talk of the Festival for sure!”

Tim MaKarral

Warlord Armor for Medieval Wedding

“When I received my suit of armor it surpassed all of my expectations. The craftsmanship and quality were exquisite and the entire suit, from head to toe, was one of a kind.

In regards to comfort, I have worn the armor to indoors events and outdoor events for up to twelve hours at a time with no more discomfort than my friends had in their outfits. Its full articulation makes moving around fairly easy and it is breathable enough so I haven’t roasted even on the days it’s been 90+ degrees Fahrenheit.”

Thomas Lemire

Flame Dragon Armor

“I have collected Dragons for many years since the late 80’s. After having over 200 I decided to turn myself into one. Some words where tossed around like show stopper my having a LOVE for all costumes and my favorite holiday being Halloween I knew I found the right man for the job. He will never repeat a design so your piece will by unique to you. The fit was perfect, I can literally say it was made to order.
I wore my dragon suit to Folsom Street Faire September 2013 in San Francisco and stopped the Faire – I was posing for pictures non stop with a half circle of people around me all day clicking away. I have won best costume as well and can’t wait to start going to Cons.”

Robert Kleypas

Golden Dragon Armor

“So, yeah, the “blood knight” armor was a huge success! I was in costume at anime expo for 27 hours, over 3 days. Over those 3 days I was able to move around for 5 hours, without pausing to have my picture taken! Seriously, bad ass.

At blizzcon I wore it for day 0, and again, the amount of people who loved it was over the top.

Thank you, can’t ever pay you back for the awesome memories”


Blood Knight Armor

“Ended up winning the costume contest at King Richard’s Faire! Everyone loved your armor, and tons of people wanted to know where I got it and who made it. Hopefully it will drum you up some more business, you deserve it. Thanks again!”




Dan Ford

“Wow. I mean, WOW! It looks wonderful! Money well spent!

Thank you sir, you made me a very happy customer.”
