Title: Lodan's Weapons WIP
Post by: Lodan on May 30, 2017, 02:29 PM
Hello there :)

Here I will deposit a few pictures I took (or I will be taking) while working on my weapons.
For now, all of the weapons in this thread come from Helix's workshop
http://mandalorianmercs.org/forum/index.php?topic=105281.0
They either are 3D printed or cast.
Awesome products I'd recommend to anyone :)


Vibrodaggers

Here is an overview of what I had to work with from the beginning.

After the usual sanding and surfce cleaning, I applied a first coating of metallic silver paint with a "hammered on" look.
Then I protected almost all the knife with masking tape except for a specific zone (in black). I applied another metallic paint. Some, kind of "oily bronze" type of paint.
And in the little round holes, I inserted some crystal resin tainted with stained glass plaint. I wanted a pearl finish for the insert.

And then I weaved my handles with leather cords. (I'll supply the youtube tutorial link as soon as I can find it back :) )
