Papier Maché Battle Axe

This is the beginning of the papier maché over the cardboard base. For the handle I used an old branch leftover from when we had the half dead apple tree in our backyard chopped down.

Here is the papier maché finished.

I coated it in primer, made by mixing Gesso with black acrylic.

I spray painted it with "chrome" silver Krylon paint....now it looked like it was made of tin foil.

I used watered down black acrylic, to weather the axe. I also stuck in some metal studs meant for leather to look like rivets.

I wrapped some leather strips all around the handle to bulk it up a bit. Now it's finished.
