WIP Weekends – Horse Armor

I am working on something with the strangest deadline I’ve ever been given: it needs to be finished before jousting season starts. Before the fields dry and the mud becomes manageable, I need to finish making a face-guard (or chanfron) for a horse.

It’s my first equine client, so there’s a fair bit of trial and error. I’ve finished the aluminum mock-up, so now it’s time to put my hammers to some stainless steel.

Here’s what the rough draft looked like:
