One of the coolest axes in my opinion i have ever made is definetely this one.
- 10mm. Plastazote LD 45 foam
- 6mm. Plastazote LD 45 foam
- 3mm. Plastazote LD 45 foam
- Fiberglass core
- Dana Contact glue
For this i made a design first in full scale, so it was easier for me to make it.
I reinforced the tips of the core with cloth and foam, and then added the 10mm. pieces to make up the handle of the axe.
I flattend sections on the handle, and added the axe head to it.
Though rough, it quickly helps with seeing how it’s going to look in the final.
I added a 6mm. wrap around the axe, to help with the finish and detail.
Skipping a bit, i added more details, with wood effect, rivets etc.
The tape is where the leather handle will be placed.
I finished it off with 6 layers of black latex, followed up with layers of colors. The metallic and brown highlights were dry brushed on the blade.
