The Royal

Dagger

For my final quarter at SCAD in Winter '20, I made this decorative Royal Dagger for a Prop making and Set Decoration class. The process started with getting some references and rough sketches done followed by marking, cutting and shaping the wood in the wood shop. I made this dagger out of balsa wood to keep the prop light and finished it with metallic paint and studs to give it a royal touch.
