Protecting your forearm with an Arm Guard

I did an archery internship. We used forearm protection to avoid the arrow to burn our skin. I decided to make a leather arm guard for this reason.

Get a piece of leather adapted to your arm.

Draw a pattern, and integrate holes.

Carve the leather and start painting it.

Apply the antic finish.

Add strings.

You must still be able to bent your arm.

In movies, the design is outward-facing, when it is in an armor, to protect from swords.

Here, for archery, it must protect the forearm, so inside-facing.
