How to plastidip a craft project and then paint it in layers to look metallic and realistic. I originally published this tutorial in February 2014 for the Crafting Games.
After a lesson with my favorite goblin Hacksaw, I got it in my head how much fun a downspear would be. So I made one! And it is fun! Nothing like a 5’6″ guy getting a 4-foot equalizer! It is also a great walking stick for the field. The walking stick idea got me thinking, what if Yngiwulf just picked up a stick, hardened it and added a spear tip? That would be a great look, so I sketched an idea out for that. Making it wood would be a natural for me because I love trees and wood texture. The original plans called for vines, as you can see. I am going to leave those off and try to lighten the design as much as I can.
