I am one of the original founding members of Imperial Royal Arms, an avid costumer, member of the 501st Legion, Rebel Legion, and Assistant Jen'ari for the Yavin 4 Temple of The Dark Empire, as well as Sedriss for the "Spire of the Storm", the Florida region within that Temple.
I run Xanthus Laboratories as a hub of the most talented people I can pool together, including Master Do-Clo, My good friend Ron who does our leather work, and the team of Lin and Tara Smith (Fiance and mother) to do the costuming.
I create unique saber hilts from raw metal tube, rod, sheets, and blocks.
I will be adding more pictures here soon, but the following links will help you see our work.

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
