    Like Paladin, I'm a fan of 1/4", 16 gauge in Euro 4-in-1. It's reasonably flexible, still gives room for expansions and contractions, and is moderately opaque.

    Also if there is any type of weight having thin straps can get uncomfortable quick.

    As only the top row of rings is visible, using stainless rings of the same size instead would not be visible but would be much stronger without having to double the rings.

    For anything of size I find it easier to make smaller pannels and stich them together later on. Farrming out to willing friends and family will help speed up the project. I try to keep some materials on hand to work in front of the TV or during game night where you can multi task. Use pliers that work well for your hands, take plenty of breaks and keep a slow steady pace, its a marathon not a sprint,

    Hey, folks. I've been a mailler since about 2006, and I've seen chainmail inlays that are really amazing but there aren't any "how to do this" links anywhere. I was wondering if such a list exists? I have a chain shirt with paw prints on the sleeves and don't know how it was done... I wanna make stuff like that. Halp?

    http://www.zlosk.com/pgmg/igp/ A number of mailers use the program in the link above to help plan out an inlay. Also check out http://www.mailleartisans.org, there are a few threads on the topic there. I remember one was actually a tutorial on how to convert a photo into a pattern. (IGP is one of the programs used in the tutorial.)

    I'm new to creating scale mail or chain mail. I have the idea of making scale mail armor with the main scales being L or XL, then layering a S or M copper scale on top. Will that work, or will it distort the pattern too much? Thanks Scott

    I *used* to wear broomstick skirts and poet blouses with brown leather sandles, but that was before I started making my own chainmaille, so I only had a necklace to wear with them. Now... my skirts and blouses are lost to the wind (multiple moves) and I wear my chainmaille (braclets, necklaces, belts, earrings, handflowers, whatever) with my jeans and baby doll tops and combat boots. If I can loose about 50 pounds I'll be wearing my chainmaille with some of those sexy leather halters and skirts you can buy at the faire (unless I can figure out how to make my own by then!) Chainmaille is like the color black. It goes with everything
