My brother being a badass and modelling the finished Great Knife.
See the WIP for its initial construction: [link]
The paint was hammered metal color, the same as the helm
, sponge dabbed with a mixture of that spraypaint and some gray and black acrylics for dark splotches. The rust solution was added to it as well, especially in the scratches and slices in the ABS plastic, and the blood (which was THE most fun to do -- I can't even describe to you
) was three layers of different hues of red/brown/black acrylics mixed with stage blood.
