While making the 4 swords of power, I will use sheets of 5mm think plywood and EVA foam to make the swords. To make it the color I want, I was hoping that I could use silver, gold and brown paint, and then use some black and brown shoe polish or something like that to make a weathered finish. I do need to learn how to effectively apply the shoe polish using brushes to make a realistic finish. I will test the finish on cardboard first, them move onto the foam when I am confident enough. The following pictures are my plans and my unfinished vector drawing. After printing 1 of the swords, I learned that it was hard to align everything perfectly, and made some holes for wooden skewers.
