Hadhafang Noble Collection handle paint project

So... I had scored this noble collection Hadhafang a while back for 50 bucks. I wanted this version because of the raised vine motif, which I really liked. I didn't realize that the handle would be plastic though, and the wood grain looks super fake, as well as being too light in color compared to the screen prop.

I decided to paint it darker and attempt a better wood grain look. Here's the initial coat.

Then some subtle texturing...

Then some more

Then sprayed the handle with shellac to give it a glossy look

And the finished look..

Looking at it now, I might have gone a little darker, as the UC version is pretty dark. But you go too dark, and it's hard to draw in the wood grain. For now, I'm happy with it.

That's pretty awesome. You're lucky you got that one so cheap. I've been looking for a reasonably priced one for a while now and they're virtually impossible to even locate from a reliable source.
