These patterns are easy to use with a laser cutter and work great as a stand alone piece or a base for hand tooling . Just cut, embellish as much or little as you want, and assemble.

I decided to work with worbla and EVA foam. The pattern worked amazingly with some little adjustments. Patterns were clear and the video tutorial helped a lot to see how to put everything together. Overall I'm very pleased with the pattern and my new gauntlets.

Introducing: Stand Alone Lessons! 

I’m excited to reveal the first individual premium and Academy Exclusive tutorials that are in progress now!  I happen to be working on a very elaborate dragon head style helmet at the moment and I have decided to share a couple of the more commonly requested advanced features there.  (Custom project though, thus, no pattern. Sorry!)   Filming is currently in progress and the tutorials will be made available as soon as I can edit the videos when I wrap up this filming session.  Pre-Order now for a fantastic deal and first access to this content when it is ready.  Your early support will help in the creation of this and future content.

For now only these two aspects are available as lessons but in the future there will be a large library of advanced techniques you could use in augmenting our patterns, or coming up with your own designs, tools, and techniques.  These are all unique techniques that teach a specific skill that is designed to add great value to your lifetime crafting journey and expand the type of creations you can make and reach new levels of detail and originality.

What’s In Progress?

October 21, 2021
Right now we have the tail end of the Imperial Knight series getting wrapped up.  We’re also always working on custom projects as we go and I have begun filming some aspects of those creations to share as stand alone lessons and pre orders.  The first bits of the Elven Lord series just released (helmet) but the tutorial is still in progress.

What’s coming soon?

Primary goals for the short term after wrapping up those aforementioned items is to go in hard on the Warrior Series and the Elven Lord Series patterns and tutorials.  We will be still working on custom projects but here too I hope to film more bits and pieces to demonstrate various skills and maybe even share some more stand alone simplified patterns..

What’s Coming Later?

There are so many long term plans including tutorials for other crafting mediums, many more stand alone patterns and lessons, business tips and lessons on how you can make a living as an artist and craftsperson, and more home studio projects as we settle into our new place and start customizing and decorating it in an epic fantasy theme.  Exciting things on the horizon!  We’re just getting started!
