lol XD I got that stuff as a gift. It is really watery paint, but it works great for the basic colors.

I used a bright metallic copper paint and then dry brushed some darker brown/black to make it look like worn out metal.

also, any idea of how I can make my ubersaw shiny looking? It's already painted so what I would need is some sort of finished coating to make it shiny.

I recommend a clear gloss, either the paint on or the spray on. you can find it at most art supply stores.

is there any chance the gloss will mess with the painting I've already done?

no. As long as the paint is dry the gloss just makes it shiny! It won't make it metallic but it will be glossy.

Hey Tango! Im doing a presea combatir cosplay and I need to make her axe.
Do you know where I can find a large piece of foam core for the blade? I dont know where to look. And sadly Im limited on places I can get things (I live in the freakin middle of nowhere!! *dies*) But I try to make it to the cities.

I just really need to get started on it. This information would really help!

The best places to find foam-core are: Michaels Crafts, Dick Blick, Wet Paint, or Joann Fabrics, Otherwise you can sometimes find it at Ace Hardware, or something similar. I wouldn't make anything longer then 2 feet out of foamcoare before it can bend easily. If you do make the base out of foamcore or woodcore, I would suggest papermache over the whole thing for stability, plus it's easy! Don't forget to sand your papermache for a nice smooth look. Hope this helps.
