Re: Sleeping bag/bed/bag thing!

Heres the scan of how to make a grass mattress. I have seen a double size platted straw mattress from the early 20th C in the Country Life Museum in Co. Mayo, Ireland. It would have been like sleeping on an archery boss.

I'm in it fighting the Woodvilles. I know I crossed weapons with Sir T at one point, but most of the time I fought a skinny lad on the end and had a great time.

Re: Lining of hoods

Thanks Karen.

I know normal people can get away with collars keeping the neck warm but it's not unknown for me to wear a scarf in summer beause I suffer from awfull sore throats if my neck gets cold so I wear a hood a lot; I'm not normal :(

Looking for views on this pot

This image was taken from karen Larsdatters site whilst i was looking for either cloaks or travellers packs. What are peoples views on the construction of this pot.

Steel beaten into shape?

I'm looking for peoples views before I think of getting one made.

Re: Battlemerchant v GDFB helmets?

Most of the GDFB Global are made of 2mm. Battle merchants helmets range are either 1.6mm steel, which they mostly only tell you after looking on the extra item desription, or openly call them 2mm steel. If I'm getting bashed on the head I'd rather the thicker steel with a well padded cap.

Re: looking for an image.

Thanks Merlon, but seen those already but will look closer at the WebArt site later tonight when I have time. The St Wolfgang reference may apply to the church and not the paintings name so the image may be in hidden in the margins.

Re: looking for an image.

I did John, but nothing came up as St Wolfgang and corn. I will tonight revisit and check all the Altar images of Christs life and look with a magnifying glass; maybe it's in the border of one of those.

I have spent some time looking on the web and especially Karen Larsdatters site but to no avail. Am I missing something or does anyone have a ...

Does oil paint eventually dry?

Does oil paint dry? Reason: I'm in no way knowledgable about paints, and didn't realise I was using oil paint until I'd painted a small circle on a piece of fabric, and then thought this isn't right and looked at the tube :( I had been buying acrylic paint with the shop assistants help and this slip...

Re: How to get out chewing gum?

Thanks John.

It's on my daughters wool kirtle all squished in. She sat on it a few weeks ago and it's been in the freezer since. That didn't work and then it went in the wash. I will try the WD40 idea as it seems less messy than the others. :o

Well,

Anyone know how to remove chewing gum that is not an old wives tale, because freezing was a waste of time.

Re: reenacting warbow poundage

Just be carefull that you don't get in to the realms of flatbows. You can't go much wrong with a D section longbow what ever the size. My choice for the battlefield is a 40lbs bow which looks tidgy compared against my old 65lbs bow.

Re: Pictoral evidence of women fighting in C14th

Thanks very much.

I'm very intrested in the archer with the breast plate in the centre bottom.

Back on topic, I have seen in Warbow I think, of archers supporting a beach landing. The defending forces from the town include women. No idea of it's origin.
