Hello Skylords Finally its done, today id like to participate in the BFR Contest --> FanArt. I just thought: well i cant draw, i cant program, cant compose and i have no experience of making a video. But i figured out that FanArt doesnt mean it has to be a picture, its just Art. So i decided to make THIS! (sadly i cant upload the pictures directly) http://imgur.com/a/WgFVj This sword weighs around 27 pounds, is made of steel and is 1,2 meter long. It is NOT sharp because of safety reasons. To create this blade it took me around 20 hours if i dont include the drying time of the varnish. On this pic you can see it without the varnish and that it is made of steel. Maybe you can see it, on the right there is my hand and i had problems holding it with only one hand cause its kinda heavy. http://imgur.com/a/1U801 How i made it: Sadly i have to admit that i never learned to use a forge. (which would fit even better). So i just took severel pieces of steel and welded them together, then i cuttet it into a raw shape. After that i grinded the whole blade, that was the most stressfull part of that. So i nearly cuttet, welded, grinded, bended around 18 hours until the form was finished. Then i get to the varnish part. That actually took the most time cause you always had to wait until its dry. I started with the grounding to make sure that the blade wont rust. Then i coloured the whole thing light blue. Waited again then used adhesive strips to protect the "arrow". Then came the black over all of that and then just removed the strips. To make sure that the Varnish wont go off i used clear coat to protect the colours. The last part was to use black duct tape for a better anti slip effect at the hold. http://imgur.com/a/YWT8x Now before you tell me what you think about that, i have to admit that im not soo happy with blue paint. In my opinion is has to be more bright. Also the spikes at the holder might not be correct. Well thats it from my side Thanks for reading that much text. See you in the forge
