This has been a long time coming, but I am pleased to finally show the results of months of work. I was approached to create a replica of Loki's scepter from Marvel's "The Avengers" for a client. The piece was created in a combination of rotocast urethane resin and cold cast aluminum resin. The piece measures about 39 inches when filly assembled, and disassembles into two parts for ease of transport. The gem is lit by an embedded LED and battery access is located under the top-most plate. The blades and "steel" parts are cast in cold cast aluminum with acrylic and enamel weathering. The gold areas are cast hollow to minimize weight, and the piece weighs less than 4 lbs fully assembled.
I'll be completing the full length spear version seen during Loki's fight with Thor on the roof of Stark tower over the next few weeks as well.
