Default Re: Sword of Omens for 3D Printer WIP

The wait to print this is killing me. Printer won't get here until April.

Did have one neat idea that I'm going to have to go out and see if its practical or not.

In the past I have used gold leaf in projects, and I can usually get a pretty nice finish out of it. I need to see if they make silver leaf (I know they make this one), steel gray leaf, and dark iron gray leaf.

My plan? Print the sword out, get it all smoothed and finished, then leaf the entire damned thing with actual metal so that it *LOOKS* like an honest to God metal sword, instead of just a spraypainted piece of plastic.
