Welcome to the Kimble family's site!

A site about the lives of Andy "Guido" Kimble and Erica (Fry) Kimble.  We hope you enjoy it.

You probably already saw the gloves in the pictures of the completed bracer assemblies.

I started with a pair of well-fitting Carhartt work gloves.  I made finger plates out of Sculpy, bake-to-harden polymer clay.  The finger plates weren't strong enough for my tastes, so I glued them to a block of wood, and made a mold, that I could cast 2 fingers at once with.

After casting enough finger plates, it was a 4-man job to finish the gloves.  I had to put the gloves on, while one person mixed small batches of epoxy, and two people positioned and held the plates in place until the epoxy cured (5-min).

The results look very good, especially with the bracers, which cover the back of the hand to the knuckles.  We ended up using a woodburner to obscure the Carhartt logo.
