This is what has been keeping me so busy lately. I am doing some restoration work on an original 16th century "Black and White" armour for a customer.
Many of the parts of the suit are badly damaged or missing so I am making some replacement pieces from scratch.
The helmet is an original Nuremberg piece from the late 16th century but the buff (face and chin armour) is a piece that I have made and antiqued to match the existing helmet.
Though challenging, it is quite fun matching the hammer marks, dings and scratches of the centuries old original.
