Progress on my life-size Gandalf staff is being made. I have all the pieces 3D printed, and (mostly) assembled into a staff-like structure. Last night I added some additional texture with a Dremel cutting disc. then primed it using a spray can of Krylon's finest matte black.
This morning I assembled the staff head, including adding in a light I scavenged from an old Manfrotto LED light that I never use. Now it powers the magic. Not a bad upgrade for what is otherwise an unused piece of lighting kit.
I will let the glue dry while I am at work. Then its a matter of sanding down some seams, touching up the primer on spots that got sanded, then I can start painting this sucker up!
