20th October 2010: Bits Sprayed now i dre the head of the sword out and between each colour i cut it.... drew it on a piece of white 10mm perspex, cut the shapes out and using a quarter curcle router bit i routed the edges of all of the bits i cut out, used Dulux onecoat black paint so any inperfections were covered up by the thick paint and allowed to dry (36 hours approx) the blue will next be done followed by the yellow and finally grey... the pieces will then be fixed to the perspex base and a handle will be made (serperate entry)

13th October 2010: brotherhood sword update The base has been cut from the perspex gunna smoooth it down, buffer the edges and then paint the base sky blue with glass paint to get the correct colour.

13th October 2010: Brotherhood Sword starts today!!! okay... finally my perspex has come

the sheet size is 1500x500 in a pale blue colour.
i have bought some sky blue glass paint for once it has been cut out to darken the blue and attempt to make it as close to the colour as i can...


basically make the swordon cardboard that the perspex come in cut it out to get the right shape then draw it on a piece of MDF... 12mm smaller than you actually want it ( just so there is room for when i route around the stencil) the cut the MDF with a jigsaw then smooth it down.
THEN clamp it to the perspex and using a router and just go around the edges of the MDF and it cuts the perspects perfectly with no marks wiggly what a jigsaw makes. should take a whole evening to cut the shape.
i have not decided what to make the top dragony with yet whatever it is will just be painted....
i was toying with the idea of drilling and putting in a white LED into the perspex to see if it gives it a good glow in the dark, as the perspex is only 5mm thick its a baddd idea... i might see what effect will happen in the dark once i am making the handle, if i put an LED if the light will disperse much along the "blade" not holding much look for it though.

13th October 2010: the boots have arrived.... i will get painting/stainging them right after i have cut my brotherhood
