So I brought my sad little master sword home today for a little TLC. I was worried my dad would say it was salvageable. To my pleasant surprise, he said it could be fixed and immediately went to work on picking the remnants of the blade out of the handle. Then we epoxied it together and went to town with spray paint. Needless to say, it’s a wonderful feeling to be able to swing my wooden sword around like it was meant to be swung!
We began to spray it with silver on the handle and black on the scabbard. About the only problem is that whatever Chinese paint they must have used on it in the factory doesn’t seem to be reacting well with the spray paint we want to use. But coat after coat, it’s coming along a lot better.
So, I’m about 95% sure that I’m going to have my wooden sword for Sunday! It won’t be complete (I still need to add jewels and wrap the handle) but it will be light and it will be ready to be drawn in the name of Selene! ^.^
Finally beginning to put stuff up for sale on Etsy. Be sure to check it out!
