Step 1: Building Process
Here is the sword finished and unpainted ,it was made in 4 pieces pommel,hilt,handguard, and blade ...it was all glued together with a 1/2" dowel going through it.
Step 2: Painting
I primed the sword and started painting the blade a nice metallic gold,I taped off the blade and started painting the hilt with black enamel i then clear coated the whole thing.
Step 3: Adding Details
I bought two 1-1/2" clear acrylic half spheres and colored them with sharpie and clear coated them these were to be placed in the pommel.I installed the half spheres and gave the thing 2 coats of clear coat then i wrapped the hilt in a light gray fabric (in the photo you see the glue show through but i fixed that problem later on).
Step 4: Done!
Here is the finished outcome i am really happy with it c: the scratches in the blade are present but hard to see.
