Make the Skyrim Iron Sword - part 3


In this part of the tutorial we finish off the sword by painting it.

Part 1 of this tutorial (the beginning) is right here.


Paint it black

Paint the whole sword black and let it dry.


Paint handle brown

Then paint the handle brown.


Dry Brush Brown

Now dry brush some brown onto the rest of the sword which includes the blade, the hilt and the pommel.

Dry brushing is a technique for getting just a little bit of spotty paint on the item. You dab the brush in the paint then wipe most of it off on a surface. Then you lightly and quickly brush over the sword. It only leaves a little bit of brown.


drybrush with silver

Then you do the same dry brushing technique with silver. But make it a little thicker with a bit more paint so it looks like this. Wonderful how the medium gel you applied shows up as wonderful details.


That's it! The sword is done! Congratulations! Send me a picture!
