Seraph blade updates (Posted 11th August 2013)
Had a few issues with cutting the acrylic sheeting for the seraph blades. The dremel has decided it doesn't like it and instead destroyed one of the discs and sanding pieces because of the heat it generated. My cousin is planning on lending me his electric scroll saw and I've checked it out on google and can be used as long as its on a lower setting and you use the correct blade. Also looking at the thickness of the acrylic could possibly make the whole blade out of one sheet thickness instead of two sheet thicknesses. Will see how it goes.
Acrylic sheeting for seraph blades (Posted 8th August 2013)
So the acrylic sheeting arrived for my seraph blades. I had to buy 60cm x 10cm (they wouldn't do a width smaller than 10cms) and each sheet is 1.5cm thick. The idea is to cut the basic blade shape into each piece then using some sort of transparent adhesive stick two of the pieces together to give me a 3cm thick piece. Once that is done it will be the slow task of shaping the blades properly into them. I have a feeling their going to be somewhat heavy but I'm pretty much using the same materials they used in the movie as it seems they used a mixture of resin and acrylics to make the blades. So cross your fingers for me guys and lets see how this goes.
