On period waterproofing

so we know about linseed oil / oilcloth / oilskin.... and how at least in the 18th c. the line between "oilcloth" and "painted cloth" seems a bit fuzzy, given the use of linseed-based paints. :mrgreen: But that's apparently (strangely) post-our-period. ... and we know about waxed...

Re: Here's one for the Beornings out there.

Neat! I've a dim memory of reading some obscure note somewhere that the Westernesse learned the art of iron-working while on Numenor (which fits in w/Udwin's reference about the Numenoreans introducing it to the tribes of Eriador) ... and that the barrow-wight was once a prince of Cardolan, which im...

you're not going crazy - me to. I assume it's just a hiccup from the move to the new system.

Re: belt pouch

interesting - I'd never seen that before! I'm gonna have to try one someday. :) Regarding the Sutton Hoo purse: I've always taken it as evidence that belt pouches generally were a thing in that time/place, and the buried person simply had a particularly nice one.

Re: belt pouch

It's the stitched-on top flap that gets my attention. :) I think I started doing things that way after looking at too many 14th c. girdle purses and 18th c. shot pouches. I don't know how "in period" it is for Eriador to stitch on the top flap rather that just make the back and flap one pi...

Re: MERF Random Adventure Pictures

It is beautiful!!! How strange to see so much sun! Here in New England the snow is starting to turn to slush, so I imagine you're starting to smell fall on the air? I totally understand your conflict: I had to live in CA for a couple years for work, and as truly beautiful as it was outside of the ci...
