dfcnothing posted a topic in DiscussionPurely decorational, I will wear to beer fest and halloween stuff, but not needing to take any hitting. I'll be using flattened bottle caps and I know Ill need to remove the plastic liner. The help Im needing is to figure out what size/gage rings. I see that most of the scale blanks have a slight bend down the middle of the scales, is this needed or would hammering them flat be OK? I saw another post where someone was folding the sides in on caps to make them look more like the scale blanks too. The round scale projects look like washers Id be trying to make this more like a regular looking scale shirt. Just trying to figure out what would be the best way to get this started. Thanks for any suggestions.
