[HALO] Covenant Plasma Rifle by Dj3r0m [HALO] Covenant Plasma Rifle by Dj3r0m
That's the Covenant Plasma Rifle I made for a friend, so he can use it as props for cosplay (to go with his masterchief cosplay)
It's made of MDF, covered with a layer of resin, then painted using gesso and acrylics.

You can also checkout the Covenant Energy Sword I've made :

Impressive work! I would suggest LEDs as an upgrade on it, but since its covered in resin and already painted, that would be so much more of a problem 'xD
The over build is amazing though! Nice sculpt, AMAZING detailing as well! Great work over all!

I love the X detailing, even if you got it a little wrong.

what was the base material you used for the model structure?

MDF stands for Medium Density Fiberboard : it's a type of processed wood.

It's really common, you find some in any hardware store, in any country. Also almost all props makers use (or have used) MDF at some point in their creations.

I'm curious about the way you process your props : you seem to use craft foam, isn't it ? Do you usually make your props out of many layers that you glue together before adding details, or are they only 1 layer that you sculpt to add details ?

I use extruded polystyrene. It's normally used for house insulation but if you know me, I alwys find a way out of the rulebook.

Yep I know that material ^^ But is it not kinda fragile to build props with ?
