A little too wired for bed at the moment. No drawings this time as I've been knee-deep in fiberglass and adoring it........Uh, kind of. So here's a bit of in progress of ZOMGPROPS and ROFLFIBERGLASS.
This is the honkin' 54" sword that I made in March. Most of it was churned out the week that I needed it... Which was like, two weeks after my tumor surgery. Totally awesome timing. Totally awesome procrastinating.
I (stupidly) cranked that sucker out while I recovering so it's... Not the of best work. It's falling apart; missing an enamel inlay in the top, it's lumpy, and the weathering was all done with my fingers and some ink the night before I needed it. SUPERSMART! Also? I love insulation foam with all my big-as-the-moon heart.
I'm remaking that sucker for an event in August. Just 'glassed and rough sanded the first half of it yesterday.
Oh, those glorious football shoulderpads from hell are just getting spot-filled for divots and other little marks I missed since March. Then a fresh, better coat of paint. That brick of plaster there is my second successful two-part mold. Woo hoo!
The fiberglass cloth goes all transparent when you pour the resin on it. It's a beautiful thing, really.
