Make a rapier: part 4- painting and finishing

In this part of the tutorial we finish making the sword.



Three colors

You can paint your sword any way you like!

I used three colors for mine: Silver, Black and Gold.


Black and gold

I started with the black and the gold. The handle grip is black and some of the guard work, including the pommel is gold.

Then paint everything else silver including the blade and those thin strips that protect the hand.


Add details

Now you can finish off the sword by adding any details that you want. Pencils, markers, jewels! Anything at all. I added some lines to the grip with a white pencil.



And that's it! Your Rapier is done. You are ready for a dual!
