Hey guys,

Finished a new project last week, after binge watching the Nightmare on Elm Street films again. I haven't done a Freddy Glove build from scratch in over ten years, so I really just wanted to challenge myself to doing a difficult build.

Started with the Rough shapes penned out on the copper and brass plates with sharpie. The blades are a set of stainless steel butter knives.

Then, the pieces get bent into shape and i tested the proportions of the cut down blades by taping them on. The yellow glove is just a temporary stand in for the final grey/natural colour glove.

Next up, Solder. The part six has the very distinctive solder spills on the armature, and a really messy job of soldering the blades. Every area that the solder needed to bond to got scuffed up with a dremel, then fluxed and hit with plumbing solder.

The last things to do were rivet the armature together, Then finish up the leather glove. As i said earlier, the yellow glove was simply just the wrong colour, so I got an old cream coloured cowhide glove, and custom built the classic ball and tape wrist closure, then weathered everything up to make everything match the screen used glove.
