Su'cuy, ner vode! I'd just like to show off my latest weapon: a custom dagger. This thing has been sitting around for some time, and I only got to finish it last night. Hope you like it! I also posted this same post in other forums that I frequent, in case you saw it there!
This custom blade was cast from a silicone mold, itself cast from a master made using mounting board and plasticine (a playdoh-type material). The master itself was actually only half of the dagger, so the final product is identical on both sides.
The prop is resin cast, then painted silver. I used acrylic paint and brushed in the bone white and gold accents. Weathering was also done using acrylic paints, a brush and a piece of household sponge.
Well, enough talk, let's go on to the pics:
I have also made a plain leather hilt for the dagger, and I plan to weather the grip and the leather thong. With some modifications, it can be turned into a spear blade. However, it can also fit into several other genres, I think, which means that I can re-use the dagger on other kits! The wooden beads are vintage: I got them from a door blind that's about 20 years old. There you have it! :D
