Shalamayne Update 9 - Main Blade Resin
My test of applying resin to the foam blade on Shalamayne was successful, so over the weekend I applied it to the main blade and hilt details. As plastic casting resin doesn't flow like paint, the coat is uneven, so it will require quite a bit of sanding to prep the surface.
The paint stand I made for the smaller blade piece worked well for the main blade as well. You can see the primed smaller blade on the bench behind the main sword. (As well as some other pieces)
