Make a Witcher 3 sword with glowing runes part 5 - Painting it


Ok, we have completed the building of the sword. The only thing remaining to do is to paint it.

Part 1 of this tutorial is here


You, of course have the option to paint your sword any way you like! This is the paint scheme that I used.

I painted the blade silver, the guard and the pommel are gold and the handle is red.

If you want your sword to maintain its colors and its crispness you can seal it all with some kind of a sealer or use mod podge on it.





And that is it! Your Glowing sword is done!

If you make this project be sure to send me a picture. I will put it on my website and send you a certificate of contribution!



I have some other projects you might be interested in. The first one is a lightbox that uses a string of LED's like I used in this sword. The second project is Zar'roc from Eragon. I use a neat techique for making the egg sized gem in the pommel.


Make a Light Box

A light box is a wonderful little thing. You can use it for tracing, drawing, and even reading x-rays. But they are very expensive to purchase. I have a nice tutorial here that shows you how to make a great one very cheap. It uses a string of LED's as the light source. How to make a light box



Make the sword Zar'roc from Eragon

Fun little project. You only need one sheet of foamboard. And we make the jewel in the hilt by casting resin into an egg. Yup, no rubber mold is needed. Make the sword Zar'roc from Eragon
