WIP Sting Swords by Dekokatana WIP Sting Swords by Dekokatana
I promised to show something when I can and these are still WIP state, but need to do final assembly, engravings for these and scabbards. So I have plenty things to do on these.

These are little bit shorter and have slightly different profile than my first Sting was, but that's life. Everything changes.

Also I did the handles a bit differently this time. Mainly used different paint and those "leafs" are hand painted on it and added several layers of lacquer. I wanted to try other colors on these than gold, like original model has. Wooden handle, stained with oak/cherry color, sanded by hand.

Other color is like copper/bronze and other one should be silver.
Lacquer seemly hides the shiny colors of those and I might search another paints for next try. If there is any..

Blade and other parts in this are made from aluminium like always.  These are made for sale, remember my name when Hobbit part 3 hits in the theaters near at you :)  Or play safe and order it now.

Thanks! It's a shame to ruin all that nice and shiny surface with engravings, but without engravings it won't be completed :)
