[SKYRIM] Staff Of Destruction by Dj3r0m [SKYRIM] Staff Of Destruction by Dj3r0m
And another replica from SKYRIM !!!

That how much I love that game <3
Actually ingame I don't really use any magic staff (I'm more of an archer, using skills of archery and stealth), but I find the ones based on destruction magic spells to be very good looking, so I had to make one ^^

As usual I sculpted everything on MDF, covered the result with a layer of resin (to make it tougher), and painted all using gesso + acrylics.

And have a look at my other Skyrim props :

I am serious though--I went to look at everything else you made. My brother is now jealous of you, too. I can't think of a better word than awesome, but all your crafting (finished or not) is more than awesome. (:

Seeing this, I am highly impressed. Been working on a dragon priest mask (and attire to go with it based on the Konahrik's Accoutrements mod) with the aim of a simple black look... maybe Dark Brotherhood themed, not sure yet. Point being, I'm torn between making a staff like this one or making a dagger (not sure what type yet though). Was searching for other people that made skyrim style staves and yours came up and I was blown away. Kudos

Oh, and I likely wont be using the same method as you if I decide to go with a staff. I live in a college dorm so I don't have much flexibility for large complicated works like this, much to my dismay as a novice amateur crafter.

*reads artist's description box*
It was carved from medium density fiberboard reinforced with resin and then painted. Not Pepakura.

:icondj3r0m:
Dj3r0m Featured By Owner May 11, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It's gesso that makes that effect : I apply it with a brush, taping the surface with that brush. It leaves that kind of 3D texture. Then painting techniques such as drybrushing and lavishes reveal that 3D texture.
In that case using gesso wothout sanding it is a good idea ^^

You can commission me to build you one, but it's not cheap, since I make them one at a time (I've only made one for myself so far). Please send a PM here or on my FB page ([link]) for commissions requests questions you might have.

Actually if I had to build another one like that, it would be more expensive than 50 dollars (also shipping cost from France to USA would probably be more than 50$)

When someone asks me if I could build him one staff like that one, I usually ask between 250€ and 300€ (+shipping) ... Anyway it's a lot more than 50€ ^^'

Such an incredible piece! Your use of color when painting this is amazing. Kind of rustic and antique looking and magical all at the same time.

I was wondering how you coat it with resin? I have only heard of resin being used in molds...do you paint it on in layers? I'm trying to make a staff myself and would like to strengthen it but have never used resin before. I keep imagining it dripping everywhere and ruining the design with drip marks or something. You seem to use it without these issues. Any info would be greatly appreciated. =)

I mix the 2 parts resin in a bowl, then while it's still liquid I use a brush to cover all the surface of my prop.Usually at the surface, MDF tends to be kinda fluffy, so the surface absorbs some resin and that make a thin but very hard mayer of resin (when it's dry).
If you worry about it covering your design, you should do some tests first ^^ And you've got to sand down the drippings anyway (when it's dry)

Suisyo Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ahhh I see. This "fluffy" surface for the mdf, this is prob once you sand it down during the refining process, right? The only mdf I've used was a very thin board that was smooth on one side and textured on the other, for a set of coasters I made. I did kind of notice a fiber like texture on the cut ends, so I'm assuming that on thicker pieces this must be more evident. And, doh!, I totally never thought about sanding the resin afterwards to smooth out imperfections XD
....silly me :stupidme:

:icondj3r0m:
Dj3r0m Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yep it gest fluffy when you sand it, and the surface is originally "smooth" (also when I glue 2 pieces of MDF it's always 2 "smooth" surfaces that I glue together).
The more detailed stuff i've put resin onto is that : [link]. I had to be carefull not to put too much resin, and also had to be carefull to be fast enough so the resin is still as liquid as possible when I apply it. Picture above is without resin and below is with resin applied.

If you were to make the dragon-head portion of the staff more arched, like a question mark, it would make a killer walking stick. I am impressed with your work. Looking forward to more of it :).

I think this one is my favorite in your set, probably because the wood material is just perfect for a wooden staff^^ The details are really perfect and the paint looks good! That's really an excellent replica :)
