This molten metal looking blade is based strongly upon a YouTube tutorial by "2brushes1cup". Be sure to check it out, if you are looking to achieve a similar effect.

  1. Base coat the the whole blade in Dead White .
  2. Paint in Flash Gitz Yellow , covering most of the blade. Thin your paint and drag to the outside, so more pigment is left there.
  3. Repeat with Fire Dragon Bright , covering less of the blade again.
  4. Use Evil Sunz Scarlet to cover a small amount of the outside of the blade, using the same technique again.
  5. Paint a small thin layer of Mournfang Brown around the outer edge of the blade, all of the way around. I added a wash of very thinned Mournfang Brown in around the hilt too.
  6. Add in small amounts of Rhinox Hide on the extremities of the blade and as a recess shade around the hilt too.
  7. Touch up anything around the blade that you think needs work and re-establish the white in the centre too. I used some Dead White again to keep it very bright.
  8. Add in a few random small patches and lines of Rhinox Hide . The idea is to make it look like slag floating in the molten metal.
