Paint the whole sword. or you can leave the handle grip section unpainted because we will cover it with some vinyl.






Dry brush silver on

Now we are going to finish the painting by using a technique called dry-brushing. You put silver paint on your brush then dab most of it off. You can see in the picture I have dabbed most of the paint off on the brown paper bag.

Then you lightly brush over the surface of the sword. This leave a very light amount of silver paint on the sword.
