    Yet another Skyrim prop!

    This time I decided to tackle doing one of the Amulets of the Divines, and really wanted one of Talos, as it has a great and simplistic design.
    Again I chose to use Castilene for this one, as I'm really starting to dig this wax for small and detailed work. I might even try my hand at a helmet using it!

    The armature was very simple, which eventually led to very minor issues in sculpting, as my hand would either heat up the wax slightly, or even smudge fine details, like line work. Overall however, I was pleased with the end result. :)

    For more words and text and stuff, feel free to check out the post on my blog about it, here!

    Now, pictures!

    Thanks Wolf!
    I'm loving doing the 'small' things in the game, item that people take for granted while playing, yet have an unique look all their own. Helmets and dragons and fancy swords don't have to get all the glory!

    WARNING- Wearing the Amulet of Talos will not assist you in winning an argument with the opposite sex.

    Only if you at the same time fall to your knee and give the girl a ring (of talos) :lol....but look out for those arrows.

    That's the Amulet of Mara, sheesh. Get your fictionally non-functioning accessories right, GAWD.

    Finally took a few photos of a painted one I did up.
    I was wanting to experiment with doing a cold-cast bronze, but the mold is alittle too odd for it, but I might try it at some point. I also want to try getting a metallic paint I've seen used that comes with an accelerator to make rust and patina effects.

    Here ya go!
