Since it was raining today and I couldn't work on armor, I did a bit of "staining/carbon scoring" to my kama. Thoughts? I want to leave the skull side untouched until I get the full kit done to see how everything looks.


In theory, my legs should be blocking most of the inside of the kama, so I did less staining on that side.

I like it! It definitely looks like you've been in a scuffle or two! I'm also in favor of leaving your designed side alone until you're further along. There's nothing wrong with that! I'd hate to see you "rough it up" too much and end up not liking it.

Thank you!! Good luck with your kit - just remember it takes time and planning (and sometimes beating your head against the wall....)  ;)

That looks really good, very battle worn.  Can I ask how you did it?  The edges look 'proper' rather than just torn or cut.  Just love that Kama to bits.

Thank you!!  :D

For the edges, it helped that I picked a super fray-able material (linen), but I think this technique will work on just about anything except pleather and leather.
I sewed a seem along the kama just above the point where I wanted to fray it to (using the same color thread, of course), then I cut out the jagged parts using both scissors and a seem ripper (scissors for the larger parts and the seem ripper for the smaller details) and attacked a lot of the edges with the seem ripper to fray them until I was happy. So it's kind of a combination of cutting/fraying/attacking fabric.

The staining is eyeshadow. I used a lot of black highlighted with gray and a wide varieties of brown highlighted with very small amounts of white. I used the same technique about six years ago when I did a Jurassic park uniform and the stains on that uniform are still there and very visible, so it doesn't fade or wear off over time. Just be careful, because it sticks to fabric and DOES NOT COME OFF OR BLEND at all...so once it's on there it's on there.  ;)

That was another one of my childhood favorite movies. To this day, I still have all my JP toys, pillowcases and books.

Just a note to say thanks for the advice on fraying, neat trick to sew first and use a seam ripper to shred.  I would never have thought to use make-up, great idea!

Also...Raptors, one of the only movies to ever give me a nightmare. Raptors *shudder*

No problem! I hope it helps - I think your kit is looking great so far, I can't wait to see how it turns out.  :)

Now I really will have nightmares....thanks!  :P

Just wanted to add my kudos to the many . . .  That Kama is awesome.  I really appreciate the discussion of you height, though.  I'm also 5'2' and didn't think I'd be able to pull of a long Kama.  I'm re thinking that now . . .
