scale mail glove fist by DracoLoricatus scale mail glove fist by DracoLoricatus
I finally finished my scale mail glove! I don't want to think about how many hours it took, so please nobody ask.

Stainless steel small scales, and sorry but I'm not selling this or making another one. I have a limited amount of sanity and I don't want to blow it all in one spot.

Quick question, what did you do for the underside of the fingers? Is it scales all the way around?

It's scales all the way around. The scales on the underside of the fingers do mean that your movement is somewhat restricted. What you see here is just about as much as they will bend.

That's more than I originally thought they could bend, actually. Thanks for the tip.

There really aren't instructions for this sort of project, I just had to figure it out as I went. If you're curious though I could link you to some tutorials on how to make chainmail and scale maille in general.

About how many rings did you use and how scales did you have to use to make it?

I think this was probably around 500 small scales. Since the scales take 2 rings per scale when you're making a sheet of the pattern, that would put it at around 1000 rings.
