    Very nice. Is that the right size? I can't quite remember but I think the movie one was a bit larger. Please correct me if i'm wrong.

    i know the "pretty close" feeling pretty well :lol

    this is my latest (and honestly, first "completed") prop from constantine. balthazars coin. actual old coin, so i kinda cheated :). i may "highlight" with a silver acrylic wash to bring out the letters and engravings. damned old coin is HEAVY though. scary heavy. id hate to be back in the old jesus days and have a bag of these things to carry around.

    next up is going to be some laser engraved crosses on some christmas ornaments. i caught the movie the other day (again), and it looks like they were engraved or frosted on there for the "holy water grenades".

    next paycheck, holy shotgun to repaint :D

    i blame you for sucking me into this particular movie prop collection btw :lol

    makes my life easier :lol

    the shot i was thinking of was when he was crawling around in hell, and has the grenade in his hand. its a pretty big close up, and the cross looks translucent, like frosted glass. might have been a CGI effect though.

    i still gotta track down some kinda lid top for those ornaments though. maybe some kinda cheap ebay vial screw top.....

    i dig the amulet though. i thought it was silver in the movie though? (yes, as often as i have seen this movie, i still dont pay attention to the props :lol)

    So is this something someone can now obtain? My wife has wanted one of these badly since she's seen the movie.

    Looks great. I can't tell - does yours have text on it, or is that just weathering that I'm seeing?

    lol I dunno. I would love to do a run, but painting them little emblems on is a Killer.
    Let me talk to someone and see if I can get these maybe produced on a larger scale.
    Then maybe an intrest thread will follow.
