Big work day for Ginny.
Finally finished the cavalry saber’s paint job. The Scabbard was done with 2 coats of sanded fill primer and about 4 coats of chrome. The chrome was all layered on within 30 min, and before it was set I dusted it with a brown florist spray paint. I love that stuff, because it is translucent, unlike most spray paints that are opaque. Then I just smudged some acrylic into the creases to give it that lived in look.
Also got some good shaping done on the revolvers. The grip is done in oak, so it will stain nicely. The other three parts are all doweled together. I’m not too concerned about getting it hyper realistic on the barrel parts, since I’m planning to keep them holstered and don’t want to have them confuse innocent bystanders when at the con. If I draw them, they will be OBVIOUSLY not real. (Not that I wouldn’t LOVE to make them more realistic and it’s killing me to hold myself back)
