kukprops's Profile Picture
I graduated at a federal technical college with focus on joinery and carpentry.
After that I took classes in software engineering.

For the most time working at my carpentry occupies most of my time. But sometimes im still able to work on my props and cosplays


Makonde Dagger
This one is for the Punished Props 250k subscriber challenge.
It´s based on a design from Jonah Lobe famouse for his work in Skyrim and Fallout.

Like the better part of my work I started to model everything in Fusion360.
It took me exceptionally long, since I´m bad with organic forms like this and my usual workflow
makes work like this rather tedious. But eventually I was satisfied and you know how it goes: every hurdle and every mistake will help to improve your work in the end.

After the model was finished, I printed everything on my Dremel 3d-printer and started the usual priming and sanding.
The middle part with the 2 figures got roughed up with a Dremel and a little spherical sanding bit to create a even texture.

Finally the whole thing got painted with acrylic paint and the handle got wrapped with leather.

Draugr Axe
Hi there !

Another piece completed.
The Draugr axe from the game Skyrim. I always liked it because it lookes kind of crude and malicious.
The blueprints for this build were sourced from Punished Props (…).
They have a great selection of free blueprints and a lot of tutorials to get you started with prop building.
My axe is build from EVA foam wrapped around a core of aluminium pipe to give it rigidity.
I primed everything with a few coats of plasty-dip.
Afterwards the axe got painted with acrylic paint.
Some new things I tried with this build:
Weathering with oil paint... didn´t work as good as I hoped. Maybe it's the brand of paint or oilpaint is simply not suitable for weathering foambuilds.
The second thing is texturing paint. I used some texturing paint to create the moss/lichen on the hilt. This worked quite well.
I wanted to repaint one of my nerfguns for a long time now. Originally I wanted to finalize this project over the course of a weekend.
But you know how plans sometimes work out...
I started with disassembly, sanding and priming.
What do you do when your primer comes off ? You sand everything again and use a different one :(
After anything was painted with acrylic paints, I put everything back together.
What do you do when some of the inner parts tend to stick and keep the mechanics from working ?
You diassemble the gun and strip said parts of their paint. Oh well...
In the end it turned out quite nice. But next time I intend to do better ;)
