I played dishonored for 23 minutes and I wanted a souvenir. You bet your whale oil I made one.

Step 1: What you need

Picture of What you need
Oil clay, plaster, paint, fake leather, hot glue, knife, clear coat and a marker

Step 2: Make a mold

Split the clay in two. One part being significantly larger. The larger half should be rolled out and shaped into a oblong egg shape, add a raised bit to it so the plaster will look cracked. The other piece should be made into a wall to hold the plaster in. Put the finished mold on a plastic bag to reduce the mess.

Step 3: Mix and Pour

Mix just over a fourth a cup of plaster, mix until the lumps are gone, pour into the mold slowly. Make sure it fills completely.

Remove the plaster from your mold when its dry enough. Sand any rough edges down and mark your lines. Take a knife and cut into the plaster as far as you feel comfortable, just not too deep

Step 5: Base Coat

The first coat is a basic cream color, I mixed yellow, white and some brown.

Step 6: Fill the lines

Use a small paintbrush or a quill tip like I did to fill the lines you carved with black paint.

Step 7: Weathering

Mix some glue, brown paint and water to make a glaze. After it dries add a new coat and make sure you clear coat in-between layers.

Step 8: The symbol

Picture of The symbol
Look at a reference picture (use Google) and paint the trademark symbol onto the rune. Make the lines fairly bold.

Step 9: Leather bits

Cut 4 pieces of fake leather into 1 and a half to 2 inch strips. Glue on on each quarter of the rune.
