the paint job is so amazing! Is there any way that you could teach me that?

Thank you. This paint job was a huge experiment , lol. I used an Air brush. I first sprayed silver metallic paint as a base layer and then I actually sprayed various shades of brown and black leather dye which naturally separated to create the rust/tarnish effect. A lot of it dissappeared when I applied the sealer so I added more dye then another layer of sealer. There are probably better ways to get this effect but I just love to experiment on my own. lol.

OK, now you have to teach me how toi make cool foam larp weapons. lol.

Ah I should really buy an air brush some day! Experimenting like that is always a good thing :)!

Haha well.. first you'll need the right materials. LARPwapens Foam, glass fiber core, bison kit, liquid rubber latex and paint that can mix with the latex (I use the paint for warhammer). Oh and off course a stanley knife, sandpaper and a good design. Yes I think that's all.

You need two or three layers of foam in the shape of your weapon so you can fix the core in the middle. A really important thing is that its all clued very very well and that you use the bison kit to do that. This glue stays soft so you wont hurt anyone whit hard edges while using the weapon.
After you have glued every thing you shape it with the knife and sandpaper until you are happy with the result (make sure that you can't feel the core through the foam).

Use the liquid rubber latex to finish the weapon. You'll need a spot where you can hold the weapon or hang it (you can later put leather around that spot later, to hide the unevenness). Use about 3 layers of latex without paint in it. Wait after every layer for 15 minutes and do another one. After those, 2 more layers with paint. Make sure every spot is covert.

If you want a good weapon that will not be dangerous to others and that will be accepted to use at LARPgames. you should ask a LARP group so they can tell you what they claim to be safe. It's probably different than here in Holland :).

Ooooh! YAY! :excited: We are SO happy to have you guys, you have no idea!

And I understand completely about being with the dragon group! They deserve you guys just as much as we would love to have you with us. ^_^ You're both hot commodities! :laughing: We should try to request to have the dragons and the drow marching closer together next year. The universes are so similar it would make sense!

That just means that you need to finesse her a little bit more. Maybe after a nice dinner and a poem she will be up for being an Orc. lol

LOL, I really want to attend comic con. Its the biggest con in the US. Unfortunately, its on the west coast and I am on the east coast but I may do a trip to the west and make comic con part of my tour. 2 years might be a good time frame for us. It would be awesome if fate worked for us.
