Step 1: Obviously You Need a Crowbar.

The one I have needed a lot of love. I found it on the side of the road when out on a walk. they just scraped the ditches the week before so this was a good find. you can chose any size that you want I deiced to chose a smaller size so I could carry it around easily. I most likely will make a resin cast but that's if want to take it to a con.

Step 2: Get It Ready

The next step that you need to do it to get a light coat of primer on the crowbar.and get it ready to paint a two tone paint job ready to crush some head crabs.

Step 3: Painting

you are going to need two colors, metallic silver, and red orange. to do this easy you are going to want to put your silver on first and then mask off both ends to paint the middle orange.

Step 4: Done!

Now all you have to do it just let dry and then you have it done. now its time to go bash some head crabs. I'm going to have some beauty shots later in the week up on my blog so check them out.

    One suggestion I would make is put like painters tape on where you want the orange to go to silver

    Awesome job! It looks brand new! I would never guess you found it in a ditch on the side of the road. I would love to see how to make a resin cast of something like this if you end up doing it!
