Mini-Gryffindor Sword Update by EerieStir Mini-Gryffindor Sword Update by EerieStir
Yep, I already have one in my gallery but I had to do this again, I really hated the first version and couldn't be happy if I didn't improve the "detail factor" :D
In case you're wondering here it is

I used to be a bit self conscious about that but now comparing the two of them gives me a good feeling :D

The 5 cent coin refers to the picture in the right in case it's not clear :) I decided to display different views of it and a bigger picture for you to see the details....because they truly required a lot of time.

You can find different Gryffindor Sword online, the most common is usually a version in which the low relief is minimal and the subjects represented are simplified.
I happened to find a picture of the actual movie version, and it was so awesome I had to do that one.

What's represented: In the top part of the hilt there's a tiny wizard holding a scroll - yep, that was one of those cases in which even needles were too big to work with!
Moving down to the middle you can find what presumably is a gryffin and down low, almost on the blade, there's a unicorn head. I worked on both sides of it, so I had to make each of them twice :D
Am I the only one who's going crazy with the coolness of what they did with something that's always supposed to stay under a character's fist?

What I used: polymer clay. The rubins are made of glitterglue.Yeah, the one they give you as a child and you find after ten years at the bottom of a drawer :D It works surprisingly well!

Ok, so I saw this a while back before I had a DA account, and so I made one and I think I'm going to post it. Should I link it to this since it is based off of your own? Thanks, amazing job on the sword ^_^
