    Marine-grade resin mushrooms; Powder cap

    Beautiful little mushrooms,

    Caps are made with West Systems epoxy resin and using specifically, West systems 207 'special coating' hardener- for the perfect balance of durability and clarity.
    Finished with Epiphanes spar varnish to provide a gloss UV protected finish, prolonging the rich luster of the Cornellisen powder pigment submerged within.

    I will be building a vaccum chamber to create the ideal environment to perfect the curing process of the resin, removing air bubbles- meaning the mushrooms you receive will look better than the ones pictured here.

    Single mushroom- £20

    Trio of mushrooms- £50

    Calculate shipping of large parcels to your country, so you do not find yourself at a shock later down the line.

    A white oak blade with spalted copper beech hand guard and pommel. The handle is made from Ekki with white oak veneer strapping as a grip.

    Built with high quality stabilised wood and finished to a marine grade standard, these swords are durable and will stand the test of time.

    The blade acts much the same as a sprung steel blade would

    These will not be made under 'construction line' conditions. Each one will be built stand- alone and given the attention and detail it deserves. Hence the long estimated delivery date. Orders will be built on a first come first serve basis.

    The packaging will also double up as a wall mount.

    I will only ever make 100 of these throughout the course of my life.
