Steel Sword, Skyrim
The Steel Sword was originally commissioned as part of a fan film based on the video game, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. It is a reproduction of a weapon that would have been made entirely of steel, and had to replicate the look and feel of real metal as much as possible. The entire piece is “cold cast” urethane resin with an outer layer of aluminum powder, which creates a real metallic sheen when polished. Aging and “rust” details were added using a mix of acrylic paints, while the handle is wrapped in real leather. The entire sword measures ~36″ end to end, and weighs just under 3 lbs.
