Been busy with a couple rush orders and several orders for things you folks have already seen if you watch this blog. I do have some new things though, an updated, upgraded version of the survival knife:
This version is nearly 100% resin, which is far sturdier and able to hold much better details. The handle is a resin core wrapped in heat formed eva foam. The caps are the ones described in my filigree tutorial.
I also got a commission for this fantastic piece, Vanille’s Heavenly Axis staff!
This piece was a lot of fun to create, and I’ll be posting a photo journal of it later. The core of the handle is heat formed pvc, with wonderflex detailing and bondo reinforcement. The antlers and head have a galvanized steel wire base, with carved insulation foam bases, wonderflex shells and bondo again for reinforcement. The mitama/beans are cast in hollow resin. It is just under four feet long and weighs less than four pounds. The whole thing is hand painted and it collapses!
