(Fe)Maille Corset

Yet another maille Corset... Made mostly with .045" by 1/8"ID stainless rings and parts from three kinds of (three different types, not three chains.. it took a bit more than three) bicycle chain. Weaves used a mostly Japanese 4-based.

Very nice work!! I bet it looks fabulous on. Could I ask, did you use lacquer or wax on the chain links? (Mine rust otherwise!)

Thanks, I hope to get a pic of it on but have to wait a few months or find someone other than my wife to model it. They are blued and lightly waxed with carnauba based floor wax. it gets a very light dusting of rust once in a while, but it pretty much brushes off with a cloth. Next time I make something like this I plan on lacquering the link to keep them fresh looking like, like the row of shinier bluish links in the bottom couple rows above the more open weave that is around the hips.
