Introduction: Thors Hammer, Mjölnir

THIS WAS A RANDOM MOMENT OF SPONTANAETY, I HAD SOME CARDBOARD AND HAD RECENTLY WATCHED THOR.
IT TOOK TWO HOURS, NOT CONTINUOUS THOUGH, WAS A HALF BAKED CREATION BUT IM PROUD OF IT AND DECIDED TO SHARE. I WAS JUST GETTING THE SHAPE AND HAD GIVEN LITTLE THOUGHT TO DECORATION BUT WHEN FINISHED I DECIDED ON A TRISKET (CHARMED SYMBOL TO THE LAY FOLK, LOL).
UNFORTUNATELY THERE ARE NO PROGRESS PICS AS I WAS NOT EXPECTING GOOD RESULTS.
ITEMS USED
*CARDBOARD BOX FOR HAMMER
*SCISSORS TO CUT
*SPRAY GLUE FOR THE LEATHER COVERING
*DUCTAPE TO SECURE
CLINGFILM TUBE FOR HANDLE
CHROME TAPE (FLUE TAPE) TO COVER THE HAMMER HEAD
*FAUX LEATHER FOR THE HANDLE (IN BROWN)
REAL LEATHER FOR THE LOOPED CORD (FOR SPINNING)
AND THE HAMMER HEAD IS FILLED WITH SCRAP FABRIC OFF CUTS FOR WEIGHT.
ACRYLIC PAINTS WERE USED FOR THE TRISKET DESIGN AND WEATHERING EFFECTS TO TAKE AWAY THE SHINEY NEW LOOK. IF YOU DONT HAVE CHROME TAPE, THEN GLUE AND TIN FOIL WORK, BUT TAKE LONGER.

Ha! You used a box! That's hilarious and works perfectly. I never would have thought of that. I'm actually in the middle of making my own Mjolnir. I'm using some thick foam board that I happened to have around.

Very cool! Any way you could age it a bit, like by painting with Gunmetal colored paint? That would totally complete the look.

Also, I think the symbol is called a Triquetra, not a trisket (which is a snack cracker).

Duh, yeah sorry triquetra, was tired last night and not thinking. it looks aged with the wash i gave it.unfortunately any chromed item in photos develops a dazzle by the flash. at the moment im working on a wooden one, then ill be doing some metal craft later in the year to creat a nice looking prop.
haha still cant believe i called it a trisket.
