Skeleton Key - Skyrim

I've been meaning to put together a build post for this for a while now but kept getting distracted.

I never gave back the Skeleton Key and never finished the Thieves Guild. I feel no remorse.

Nick modeled up the key a couple years ago but recently added more details to the knob.

Here's a screenshot of the 3d model in Autodesk Inventor.

3D printed with a Lulzbot Mini.

I didn't take any pictures of the key with bondo filler on it but here's a picture of it with a mix of bondo and primer, wet sanded!

Final coat of primer in the spray booth!

Here's a few pictures of it after base coating.

I love shapeways, so I had them print me a key. The level of detail is amazing.

That looks awesome.I also see another Skyrim prop in the pic.

Hey, you can't make your own play button that's cheating! Hehe.

Does it count if I make a red one? haha

I completely forgot about the unusal gem/chest, I got too excited about the FO4 terminal. I need to get that guy painted up!

Looks awesome. Do you like that spray booth?
Thanks! I do, it works well as long as you keep the filter clear/clean. I made a panel to hook it up to the exhaust above my stove! I also made a cart/enclosure for it using some random parts I had laying around and a target metal shelving unit with wheels.I think it was around $80 on amazon.

Metallics + weathering. Aaron does the detail painting and weathering, he's a wizard of sorts. If you have any questions I'll forward them to him and post his responses!

He's messing with a few different ways to get the "glow" effect that the skeleton key has on it. Personally, I really like the way this turned out.

We're currently working on a few more of these. I just finished sanding a few of them up to drop off with Aaron for painting!
