Spy Balisong casting process 1
I made a balisong blade out of super sculpey. Which would be strong enough as is for a prop, but if dropped, bent, hit wrong, it would break. I don't like worrying about my props breaking. So I casted my blade in resin!
For now the handle is still foamcore pieces, but I'll make that and cast it next so it can actually do tricks well (the foamcore binds obviously). But even as is it can flick open if opened a little first. The foamcore parts are weighted with magnets on their ends (This also keeps it locked when fully opened). I'll make the latch when I do the handle in clay to cast.
