A Viking Leather Helmet by Vildkorpens-Laderlya A Viking Leather Helmet by Vildkorpens-Laderlya
A helmet I made just for the fun of it.
I have always admire Tom Banwells work (not that mine is even close as good but...) I thought I just have a go at making one my style.

All fitting looking like bone carvings is all handmade by me too, just in clay instead of bones this time around :-)

Very nice work, went immediately into my faves. Really love the knotwork animorphic. I am just beginning to work on a full set of leather armor myself and this is very similar to what I see in my head for my own project. Have you played around with wet-molding leather yet? Love the rest of your work too...I'm following you!

Wow, this is so cool! Well done! I really like the little viking guy on the front--nicely similar to carvings of that age. :D Not to mention the awesome leather designs! How do you emboss leather like that without a pre-made stamp?

May I ask how you formed the leather into such an awesome head shape?

this is fantastic, the tooling fantastic, the lacing is perfect adds a nice little touch the color contrast on the leather and whole piece is great, the skulls add a little bit of an embellishment not too much though. i only hope one day i can have this much skill. thank you for sharing your work

There is a leather forum online that if you have not been there you need to visit. The forum has +10000 members from all over the world, all from total beginners to authors of leather books. Very useful and super friendly: www.leatherworker.net

Tools: Good working bevellers in all shapes & sizes, with these you can make most any pattern. A good knife for cutting out parts, an edge trimmer, this should be a great start.
