Easy enough answer.

You can just cover with craft foam. Once you have it perfectly to the shape you want, coat it 15 to 20 times in a water/glue mix. This will seal the foam completely allowing you to paint it without it being absorbed.

After painting you'll need an acrylic polish which you can buy at a Walmart. It's in a floor cleaning section. After coating it once or twice, it'll give off a nice shine.

Then from there weather it by smudging the blade with black to give it a dull look. But especially to the edges and corners to make them more pronounce.

End result, it should look like this.

Hope this helped.
When in doubt, just take the next small step.
With that next step take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
When the mind is calm you realize the best is still yet to come.
