Hylian Shield Paint Wip 2 by finaformsora
Hylian Shield Paint Wip 2

So here's the shield with the blue, red, and silver done. Just took the tape off from around the silver. I'll still need to paint anodized yellow on the triforce and then fill in the blue on the black triangle. There were a couple spots that leaked though the tape and a few spot on the blue that didnt cover all the way, so I'll need to use a very tiny bit of paint stripper on those little bits to remove the silver. Either that or lightly wetsand. We'll see.

 I've been working on patiently applying light coats to my props instead of a wetcoat followed by any more coats needed to cover the prop fully.

I had a few problems painting this part like bumps and things, but i got them out and looks pretty smooth now. Time for silver paint today!
Hylian Shield glossed by finaformsora

SHINY! I swear I wiped it down and blew it off with an air compressor, but it seems that there were specks of dust or something that got caught underneath and made little bumps, so I need to wetsand with 1000 grit paper to remove them then put on another couple coats.

Since I used acrylic paint for the blue and red, I used an acrylic gloss. Krylon's covermaxx acrylic crystal clear gloss. Seems to work very well, so if I gloss the silver on the shield or sword at all, I'll be using that. I just don't want it to dull the shine.

  So I've recently started a new project in which I will make the master sword and sheath and hylian shield. The long term plan will be to make a mold and cast these from plastic, but for right now I need to focus on making the wooden masters. I think I'll still need some practice casting before I can move onto large molds like these. As you know, I already posted some pictures showing the sword and shield layers cut out. As of today, I've finished carving the "wings" on the guard and all that's left on the sword is the center section including the handle, pommel, gem, and the bottom of the blade.

Right now the sword weighs less than 2 pounds, the shield is 13, and I can assume the sheath will be around 3. I still have to carve the front of the shield and hollow the back of the front half which should take off around 5 pounds. I put up a new youtube video here if you want to see the progress from yesterday.

Hey, everyone! I'm a hobby woodworker/propmaker. Once I become great at what I do, I will refer to myself as a professional. I look forward to the day I am as good as volpin props, or deviantart's own RocknBlock and woodcarve.

How to commission me:

You can send a message to me on here or any of the profiles listed at the bottom of this text. When you send the request, please provide the prop name, the material you would like it to be made from, when you need it by, and any special details.
For a custom prop, also provide one or two reference images.

For payment, I'll need half of the cost when I start and the other half when I finish. Paypal is the preferred payment method. If you live close enough, we could also arrange to meet in person to trade off. If I happen to be going to a con you are going to, we might be able to meet there, as well.

Keep in mind that I usually have other orders and it may be a while before I can get to yours.

Orders can be for any anime, tv, or video game weapon or accessory. Pretty much anything goes unless it's impossible for me at the time or for anyone.
