Adam’s One Day Builds: Weathering a Sword Blank!

One of Adam’s latest ongoing projects is a new hero sword, ground from a pre-made blank and finished using the techniques he learned from his time working under the tutelage of Weta Workshop’s Peter Lyon. Today, Adam takes the blade he’s ground and adds some real weathered patina to it, using a combination of his favorite rust remover and polish to give it the look of an ancient uncovered artifact.
