    Just wanted to share some pics of my chaos-eater sword from the video game DARKSIDERS.....I had started this project along time ago---and finally got some time to finish it this weekend .

    above: after shaping blade I used paper mache (clay-like) for detail work...I really like this stuff --its soft/light, easy to shape, sticks to anything...and air dries rock hard.

    I used "creative paperclay" (black packaging) found at michael's crafts....I have never done sculpting before...but I really liked this stuff....soft/easy to shape (like play-doh) ..can be wet sponged for shaping/smoothness...( sorry I dont know sculpting terminalogy ) and dries fast...

    I beat the crap out of a test piece trying to pry it off the wood with a screwdriver and was happy with its strength....(being that this is just going to hang on a wall)

    hmm sounds and looks like a great material! maybe a cheaper alternative to apoxie sculpt :p how did you get that texture on the sculpted parts? it looks so amazing!

    I made the texture by poking hundreds of little of holes in the clay....the center was painted satin black, and then dry brushed with some aged bronze paint..

    Very nice! I really like the detail.

    I want to try that instead of using apoxie sculpt. :D
