    Add me to the list wanting to keep brushed gold too, and brushed silver as well, if it's also going to be discontinued once it's out. Thank you!

    One question and one comment. The quest is, what is the eta on SCALEAALG-Frost The comment is, I for one like the brushed gold or brushed silver scales. But if they go they go. What I would like is consistency across all the different scale sizes so when I make my products the scales match as best they can. I’d ideally l would like all the scale colors made in all the scale sizes from tiny to XL. I have designs that use tiny and small together. And my tails use S-XL! I’d really like all the color options in all the sizes thank you Dan Neville owner and artist behind Forge And Fleece

    Add me to the list wanting to keep brushed gold. The non-brushed dull gold looks like tarnished, dull gold. The brushed looks like an intentional non-bright. Please, keep the brushed!

    Will this apply to brushed silver as well? My customers seem to prefer brushed silver over mirror or frost, and I personally agree with that as well. Please consider this a vote to keep brushed silver available. edit: Your earlier post said brushed gold would be removed unless there’s customer feedback - please consider this a request to keep brushed gold as well.

    The ones with the brush lines will no longer be stocked. The brushed gold is what you see on the website. Brushed refers to it not being mirror gold, not brush marks. Please see my comment to the question above this one.

    Have medium brushed gold scales been discontinued? I received an email they were allegedly restocked, but it's medium gold scales instead, not brushed.. Will the brushed gold scales return or are they gone for good now?
  12. I've used an old plastic oil jug half filled with wet sand inside the base of the dummy. It's a little difficult to tell with the low res pics but I don't see any mistakes in the weave offhand. Keep a comfortable size for the armhole, maybe the height of the base or the shoulder blade. It's pretty easy to add a row later if you need. Don't make the front panel too wide or it'll bunch up uncomfortably during normal arm motions, back panel should always be wider than the front so the armholes face forward slightly.

    scmed-aaclr ETA up to 2 weeks scmed-aafst ETA in bagger queue - about a week - you can email customer service if you need this now The gold will no longer have the brush marks unless we have a huge amount of feedback that they are desired. The problem is the brushmarks didn't always come in with them going the same direction, so the scales or tags made from the strip had brush marks going in different directions.

    Questions from a struggling new mailer with split ring

    An easy way that you could stabilize the dummy is to get a piece of scrap wood, preferable something like a piece or 2"x8", then drill a hole in the centre of it so that you can insert and glue a piece of dowel into it. Slide the dowel up into the bottom of the dummy.

    Questions from a struggling new mailer with split ring

    Been talking your guys advice from here. Got over ky nerves and made a duct tape model to work with and will be starting the other side as soon as I finish a few more rows to see if that helps change the neck to more of a V or not. Now it's figure out when and how to do the join for under the arms and start on the back. What do you all usually do for this? What to you do for stabilizing the duct tape model? It keeps falling over and I'm looking for a good rotating base to put them one and secure them to (but also is reusable) and allows for extra length of I need it past the bottom of the model.

    Hi there, Hoping for an update on: SCMed-AAClr SCMed-AAFST Also, I saw the note about brushed gold large scales now just being gold, with no brushed finish. Is this a permanent change, or is a restock ever on the horizon? Many of my customers prefer the brushed finish in gold, as it looks more like real gold/appropriate for some historically-inspired designs.

    Questions from a struggling new mailer with split ring

    Wait until you've got the upper back done and don't worry about the hang, until it can hang unsupported. If you see a problem then, address it. You might need a couple more rows on the front to make it hang well.

    Questions from a struggling new mailer with split ring

    About to finish the one side and work on the other. Something about how this sits and hangs is bothering me but I can't put my finger on it quite yet. I'm hoping that when I start on the other side it will reveal it's self. The instructions for the 90 degree weave I found are for a slightly different weave so what I think I am going to do to start is work the other side off the same holders and that will give it a similar look to the shoulders I'm making as far as how the front and back are joined but I'm worried that it may not be strong enough for the entire piece once I add more weight to it. I am thinking of doing a row of scales from the neck out like the 90 degree weave would be to give it strength but I'm guessing I'll figure this out once I get farther into the process. Thoughts so far on where I am from experience?

    Questions from a struggling new mailer with split ring

    Can't say that I've gotten the last comment ever, but definitely the first two. Rather interestingly the "patience" comment has frequently come from people who do other labour intensive thing like knitting, or needlepoint. Two of them I convinced to go to a local gaming tavern for a beginners' class. One now occasionally takes out her gear and plays around with it, while the other has become an avid mailer and makes jewellery.

    Questions from a struggling new mailer with split ring

    Yes I made a scale flower in my car while waiting for someone to get done with working and an order to arrive. My first attempt with that environment was horrible I weaved multiple rows together. The responses are interesting. Mostly it's "that's cool" but there is also "I wouldn't have the patience for that" or my favorite "why would you want to do that(mailing), seems pointless"

    You'll be amazed at what/where you can do with chainmailing, when the motions have been locked into kinesthetic memory.

    Questions from a struggling new mailer with split ring

    I agree. I ask some of these questions as you learned some of these things. But at the same time there is stuff I can't learn by asking a question, but by doing. For example. Trying to make scalemail in a moving car, or by just the light of a tv, and coming back to see what I really ended up doing and having to fix it

    Questions from a struggling new mailer with split ring

    Hell, the second and third chain shirts that I made were cut up to make something actually decent, shortly after the third was completed. I had learnt so much and gotten so much faster at weaving that I couldn't stand to look at them anymore. I even asked an actress friend to send a piece back to me, across the border, because I know that I could do far better on it. Mistakes happen and we learn from them. Even if all that we learn is, "Don't do that again."
