Making my own version of one of those plastic toy claws using plastic sheet, metal brads, and craft foam.

 A bit more etching on the claw and it'll be time for paint.

Did you cut up a less impressive claw as your starting point?

I did. The original was at the end of an 18-inch shaft.

Primed.




And here we have the base colors down. This is always the hardest part for me since it still looks like a toy at this point. It's going to be the weathering, washes, and dry brushing that's going to bring it to life.

Actually I think it's looking pretty impressive already - certainly the claw end, although maybe a little less so the handle. Again, I'm looking forwards to seeing the finished result.

Yours,
Miranda.

You're right about the handle. but then its hopefully going to be hidden inside a jacket sleeve.
