Aeglos - LOTR Gil-Galad Spear - 9ft. Long 3D Print


Aeglos has been on my "to do list" for several years now, so I finally decided to make it!

I began by making the basic shape of the blade and the spear shaft in AutoCAD.

Then the pieces were loaded into Blender so I could add all the vine detail on the blade.

When the files were printed, I used a hand sander to smooth the print lines.

And a smoothing tip on a dremel can help get into all the small areas.

Everything was sprayed with 2-in-1 filler/primer, and then smoothed after every layer.

The blade was based with a metallic silver, and then gold enamel was painted onto the vines.

The shaft is based with in raw umber, and burnt sienna was dry brushed to create a woodgrain.

Then a black wash was used to age the wood and "tone down" the color of the woodgrain.
