Heyy /diy/ I'm making a fallout 4 style deathclaw gauntlet, that looks and functions the same, but I don't know what to use for the claws. I may sharpen some raptor claws or bones...
you can sharpen it but it has a huge fuckin' hole running through the length of the center.
Not only that, the ends (epiphyseal) are filled with spongy bone, which means you won't be getting the shape and texture that you want.
If you want to shave ANYTHING down into a claw-like shape you'll have to source a real claw or horn from somewhere.
I'm not familiar with art supplies but I'm sure if you ask someone familiar with manufacturing processes they can tell you about a material similar to bone that you can shave.
1, 3D print it.
2, Cover it with something which gives it a smooth surface. Some kinda adhesive/epoxy or something like that. I don't do that kinda shit. Something which can be painted.
3, Paint it.
I'm sorry you feel that way... I'm really no the creative type and really need help figuring this out, sorry if my normieness is showing... But yeah I think I have the claw figured out. Now I just need the handle which I can work on my own... Thanks for all those who helped me!
