Mercy’s swords (Valkyrie skin)- overwatch
First, I took various screenshots from the game and traced using tracing paper to create my templates.
I used a pine 1in x 4in for the base structure of the swords. To cut them I used a band saw and angle grinder to sculpt the blades of the swords. Next the swords were sanded by hand with sanding blocks to a 320 grit finish.
I used worbla for the details of the sword and applyed four coats of wood glue to smooth the worbla & wood.
I then used acrylic paint to paint the swords and sealed them with gloss clear enamel.
Finally, snaps and leather straps were added to make the swords easily detatchable from the belt.
