Retirement Gift - Lightsaber

My second attempt at a lightsaber hilt. This one is based on a sink drain (pictured). I wanted to keep this one relatively clean, with minimal weathering. Kinda like a retirement gift for those aging out Jedi. All pieces included - Sink drain. PVC coupler, bike handlebar grip. A lot pf fun with this one. Would love to hear any thoughts you may have. Any tips on the best way to paint the heat burns on the emitter...without an airbrush?

Ive gotten good results by chipping up tacky black paint with rough sandpaper or plastic cutlery, and rubbing some aluminum black at the edges!
