This sword was a joint project between my boyfriend Jeff and I. I patterned out the sword then Jeff and I cut the pieces out of pine. Jeff sanded down the shape of the sword using a belt sander. I casted two oval gems out of resin to attach to the sword. We glued everything together using wood glue+sawdust with an adjoining dowling piece running through it.
I painted the sword using Kryloan Mettalic Gold Ore then dry brushed in some shadows. I wrapped the handle in black leather. I applied metal tape (meant for air ducts) to the blade and then uses 0000 fine steel wool to dull the shine.
