after smoothing and sanding down the styrofoam to a better surface I covert the sides(not the blades) with thinsponge rubber/foam using my hotglue. Just a little support so to speak. (tipp: you can use wood glue to harden the rubber)
added all the details and spray painted 1-2 coats of dark grey paint. Used a sponge and rest of rubber foam to add silver paint and create the effect of raw metal!Make sure to tape everything that's not supposed to be painted
I also handled the axe a bit roughly..I used my scissors and other tools to hit the axe. this way I could make some 'battle scars'/scratches/notches XD
Painted the blades silver-ish and used a dry brush and little little little bit of silver paint to add metallic effects and details.
