    The Definitive Golden Idols of Raiders *UPDATED 5-23-08*

    Oh one more personal question for anyone, the idol on the pedestal has always look guilded to me rather than vac metalized or gold plated. What was done on the hero idol we see there? Edit: found a few old posts that answer this for me!!

    Great info there. Thank you! So what idol has been made from a screen used copy? And is that Jade propstore idol also the hero mold?

    The Definitive Golden Idols of Raiders *UPDATED 5-23-08*

    I realize this thread is way old but I figured I could resurrect it with a few questions that I’m either overlooking responses to or that I truly cannot find an answer for. Has there ever been an idol made from any screen used mold? Is the “hero idol” version just a modified/resculpted...

    molotow liquid chrome pens and spray paints

    One more question about this process, if you don’t mind :) When you say you “highlighted” the spoons and did the mix as shown above, did you mix the red into the candy gold layer, or mix it into a clear coat and apply after? Again thanks a ton!

    molotow liquid chrome pens and spray paints

    Hey! I know this thread is a bit old, but I was wondering if you could give me some advice here, the gold color on your cross came out phenomenal!! So you hit it with Molotow, cure for 2 days or so, hit it with the candy gold by Alclad and let that dry? Or do you clear that candy gold as...

    To touch on that Molotow Silver, apparently you can clear it with Liquitex high gloss varnish with great results!

    Thank you!! I'll definitely look into that. I saw some nice gold enamel paints that I considered as well. Thats actually where I received the photo above of that gold predator helmet! It really is a great source of info, I agree. Hopefully Jackson will chime in with some info there for his...

    Best Golden Finishing.. Advice?

    Hey guys! I have never attempted any gold finishing (unless you could my hot glue/hobby lobby ark of the covenant from when I was 10) and I had a few questions. I’m working on a huge project involving a nice gold finish and I’m a bit lost in a sea of available info. The base pieces will be...

    Casting a Knife Replica

    Bandsaw blade armature definitely sounds feasible, I'll look into that! I've considered doing a wax or clay sheet onto the end of the blade where it thins down, as well so that will probably be the best option. I have ran into MPK90 in my search results, but never used it personally. so you'd...

    Casting a Knife Replica

    Not sure, but definitely enjoyed that thread. Maybe I’ll try that method with one of the larger knives I’ll be replicating. Cosplay/Display :) It’s not, I recently uncovered the screen used Halloween 4/5 knife brand and I’d like to make a casting, maybe a few replicas, but I’m still not too...

    Casting a Knife Replica

    Well first of all awesome job! I'm also curious if you have a suggestion as far as casting goes. Since the knife has a fair amount of detail I'd like to capture, that is
