I made this armor piece for an Elven fantasy costume. It is made up of a chest piece, with two shoulder tiers. The branches and large oak leaves are all hand-tooled. The chest piece is stamped in a scale pattern with a miniature oak leaf pattern. I lined the entire thing in gray wool felt to match the silver trim, and to prevent it from bleeding onto the costume below. After dying it purple, I added the black filled areas with an airbrush. The chest scales and the texture on the branches were antiqued with a leather antiquing stain. All of the silver trim was hand-painted with textile paint.
