Fantastic work, mate!  I have never used (or even heard of) Worbla.  Is it easy to work with?

Thanks!
Not that easy. You need to plan ahead if you don't want to screw up your worbla sheets.
Also bubbles are an all time favourite problem.
But that's still my favourite material :)

I use PVC for my armoring.  PVC or steel mesh layered in fiberglass and Bondo.  Messy and time-consuming, but the end product is fairly solid.

Can you cut the worbla with scissors?  It looks rather thin.

Also, fantastic work.  I just saw the Ebony WIP #3!  Looks awesome!  What else are you going to be adding to it?

Worbla can be cut with scissors, yeah. It's about 1 mm thick.
But it's not as easy to cut as paper or fabric. It's like you cut PVC sheets.
Check out this short info about it: www.worbla.com/

I recommend to try this material, it really is nice to work with if you know the tricks :)

Thanks!
I'll do the whole ebony package from neck to toe.
The only thing I'll not add is the helmet, since I already have my ancient nord helmet.

Will this be a full set (after all you also have the dagger & the axe) or just the chestplate and some other armor parts? Looking forward to following your progress on this project.
