I just happened across you and your work (specifically this) at the Prop Weapons Coop group here on DA, I have no idea how I wasn't already following you, this stopped me in my tracks it's so beautiful. What an amazing job... wonderful just wonderful.
Omg it looks awesome! The details are brought out gorgeously by the metal finish, ! It looks really great If you're going to make other casts, I wonder if a bit of copper powder could bring a slightly more golden/orange color?
