Make the Skyrim Dragonbone Sword - Part 2


In this part of the tutorial we continue working on the dragonbone sword by gluing it together and painting it.

part 1 of this tutorial is here



Glue part 1,2,3,4 right onto the main sword blade piece just like you see here. It is pretty easy to see how it goes because the handle and guard parts are a match.

Glue the pieces together



Glue the extra handle pieces on

Then glue on the two guard pieces, first the larger one then the smaller one.

Now flip the sword over and glue the three pieces to the other side just as we did on this side. First the big piece then the two smaller guard pieces.






Trim the edges

Ok, once the glue has set you should clean it up with a knife and sandpaper. Smooth out the seams where the various layers meet.








Let's Paint it!


Paint these parts black

First lets paint everything but the bone blade. And all of it is black. But don't use plain black. Mix some gray into it to soften it up and make it look more like forged iron.







Add silver details

Now use silver paint to accentuate the various edges on the handle and guard. Also accentuate the ring at the pommel.









Add rivets

Now use silver paint to add the bolts. There are four on this side of the sword and four on the other side of the sword. These are a nice detail. They are how the metal frame is attached to the dragon bone!









Add details with white pencil

Then finish off the handle work with some details. I used a white pencil. Draw the four leaf pattern on the guard and add a few more bolts. And notice the half circles drawn around the bolt we had earlier painted on.


Next Ok! Let's finish this sword off by painting the dragon bone blade.
