So, as i am making a Doctor Who fan film, which will be starring the Doctor, and he'll be doing quite a bit of screwdriver-flicking. I want to make a dummy version as the real ones are 30 dollars, and i don't want to drop and break them. So, here's the question, is it possible to mold a rubber (or plastic) sonic screwdriver? And maybe add a small rod in the middle to balance out the weight. I don't have any experience with rubber-molding, but i can see a potential problem.
If you look on the screwdriver, the claws are somewhat loose. And the mold could get stuck behind them, as far as i know, the wouldn't work for a mold, as the material would get stuck behind it, and tear when you pulled out the real sonic. On another note, what paint should be used for the rubber, or plastic. And does anybody know some good basic tutorials and tools for getting started?
