OK, So I think I have lightsaber ADD. Because I'm in the middle of a project, I started another project. I have 3 or 4 projects sketched up & on deck. So Sunday this idea hits me & I built it. A pvc version of an Obi TPM pommel. I built it to see how it would look & to see if my idea would work. So here it is.
I'm happy with the way it turned out.
P.S. Now that I figured out this pommel, I'm going to repaint all silver & use it for my Ahsoka inspired hilt.

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.
