MOST RECENT

More progress on Thancred's sword. Spent most of the day grinding away at it with my entire arsenal of sanding equipment.
I figure that if I want it to be ready by #metrocon then I need to get the first coats of paint on it by Monday. So that means I need to finish sanding it tomorrow morning and have all my layer details cut out by tomorrow night.

It's a daunting task, but I'm no stranger to con crunch!

Cat for scale. .

Finished!!! Thancred's Off-hand Dagger is done! Did my clean up of some paint hiccups, got it glued together nicely, and the leather cording wrapped! It's officially #metrocon ready!

I'm overall very pleased with this build. I made few mistakes here and there, and am honestly a little concerned that it might break in half if mishandled too harshly, but I learned a lot and am proud of it! .

Thancred Dagger is almost done! Got the final coats of paint on it today, all it needs is a bit of cleanup and then it's on to final assembly. I'm really happy with the colors of paint I was able to find! .

So. Much. Sanding.

I made a lot of progress on Thancred's sword today, and I don't mind saying it was an ordeal. This sword has such an odd, interesting shape to it, and which requires me to sand almost every inch of the thing to achieve that shape.
I tried doing all I could on the Belt Sanders today, but next time I go at it it will be with the Dremel and good 'ol fashion sandpaper. .

First layers of paint done! Sanding the blade between primer coats took FOREVER. Way longer than I expected anyway. But it was well worth it. I even did a test wrap of the leather cord I got for the grip, and it's the perfect color. .

Today was productive! I got the dagger layers all glued together. I also sanded down the crossguard layers so that they were all flush, then hit the edges to give them more of a smooth, slightly rounded look as opposed to a sharp edge.
I find that even if an edge is supposed to appear straight, hitting the corners and edges with some fine grit sandpaper to slightly round them out helps make everything look more natural and less slapped together. .

Layers!
So now Thancred's sword is an Inch and a quarter thick, with the middle layer a sheet of 3/4 inch MDF and the surrounding layers 1/4 inch each. The new layers are still a little rough around the edges, so I'll have to clean them up a bit before I glue it all together. And then the carving begins!
It'll look a lot sleeker when I'm done, and I'm hoping the process will shed a few pounds off the thing as well. It's heavier than I was originally expecting! .
