My FIRST Make!
My gf is working on a play at the local elementary school. They needed a prop so I made this. Thanks to the user for the the Lion Model!
Steps ( look at photos )
Print file. I didn't use the gem, but supplied it. In cura separate objects command, The multiply if you want to use. I just went to Michaels and bought some small gems. Much easier.
Primer it a color you want to see under the gold if you plan to make weathered.
Spray it with Gold.
Follow normal steps of roughening it up. Dremel tool, Sand paper. Apply some marks and paint with silver and copper paint. Keep roughening it up.
Apply some clear Glaze coat. One coat will do. Let dry for 12+ hours. Afterwards roughen it up some more. Then paint over that. This gives the marks a little depth because of resin coat. Also protects your bottom coat work.
Hit it with an extra light pass of gold paint. ( dont have to , but I did. ) Then give it a light glossy clear coat.
EXTRA CREDIT: See the 3 bars on the amulet? The right left and bottom? Metal or string wrap that. That was the plan with mine. I just dont have a picture of it yet.
