So I have been testing paint on foam for some big projects later this year. As a result, I think I have found a good formula to make the these foam weapons “realistic” and pretty durable. Some extended testing will be done, but I feel confident that if you need a cool prop for your convention persona, these should work great.
Email me if you have any interest in placing an order, thanks!
Here’s some photos of the before and after!
I usually don’t get too fanboy when it comes to the props I paint, but that went out the window with this sword. It’s so damn red and shiny, lol. I tried to balance out the realistic/cartoon-y look and I think this was a good balance for the first try. Many thanks to my talented Dad for his time spent building this three foot beast 🙂
I hope you AT fans will enjoy seeing the photos (yes, I’ll get a proper photo before it leaves!) and maybe we’ll try another one if you have some suggestions on what the next one should be 🙂
I was able to get some color on the Demon Blood Sword tonight. Please do not look directly at the sword, its pretty damn bright now 🙂 Thanks for checking out the progress, this will definitely be done by Thursday 🙂
I worked on a few projects with Dad this weekend, both being ones that I can’t wait to see finished. I’ll add a few photos of the progress and expect more progress soon! (They have to be done for Halloween!)
As always, thanks for visiting and sharing! 🙂
So I was requested to do a few more of the Finn swords, which I was very happy to do 🙂 This is Sword #2 (I will take better photos soon, I swear!)
Thanks for checking it out and I can be contacted for more at your request 🙂
