I can t help with the build (although it sounds very cool) but i can advise you against using apostrophes on this site on certain platforms.  For some reason, all the text starting  with the apostrophe disappears. 

Good luck!

Take 3

I have started working on designs to make my Baratheon Hammer look better. To me, it has looked like shit for a while, but priorities have stopped me from fixing it. I am not starting over, just modifying my current hammer. I am going to add some leather hand grips, a pummel, counter weight,spike on the bottom, and some decorative something to the shaft below where it meets the hammer, and I am likely going to repaint the hammer itself. Where I am stuck, is the design of any art, and materials to use.

The pummel and leather are not an issue, that is easy and I know what I want.

It is cleaning up the hammer and the art that I am stuck. I have some golden stags heads and antlers that I am planning on using but not sure about the rest. My biggest questions are materials based, what is good for covering the hammer to give it a clean smooth surface, and what can I use to add to the base of the hammer, around the shaft?

What is really bothering me with the hammer itself, is the seams and glue showing. There should be a picture attached. Scratch that, it is not letting me.

I bought some air drying clay, to, at the very least, model out any, for lack of a better term, shaft designs. No idea how it dries, if its brittle or shrinks, or cracks.

As for any decorative art, I feel like Celtic fits best, but am not sold on it. I really need to bounce ideas off people.

-getting to visit with out of town friends we hadn't seen in a few years
-not getting trapped in a bouncing elevator with screaming people this year
-unown spawns for Pokemon Go :)
- #swordguychallenge hashtag on Twitter during the Sunday night masquerade  (we give mad props to sword guy, he is crazy fit to pull off his performance); also Eddie McClintock and Tony were the best host duo I've seen!  They had our room in stitches the entire time.
-loved the Ilona Andrews panel and that they let us into the room early since it was the first panel of the day and aired the live stream of the parade while we waited.
- John Barrowman/Catherine Tate panel was hilarious and I would love to see them together again.
