The library now has a 3D printer and we were able to create a lightsaber (uncertain if it is Obi-Wan's or Luke's...or maybe an amalgamation of the two) which I have been asked to paint to resemble metal. I researched lightsabers and watched videos on painting 3D printed items (surprising how much information there is online) and have really enjoyed this project. There were many layers involved and included the colours black, white, silver, gold, pthalo blue, iron oxide, alizarin crimson, raw umber utilizing acrylic paint, gesso, glazing mediums, an archival varnish and spray inks. I really do have a fun job.
