Scratch built Raptor claws!
I decided to try to make a claw from Apoxy sculpt ( a 2 part putty) and here is the result. I had made some extra so I made a smaller second claw. Once it dried I gouged ot the other side a bit with a chisel and sanded with a course sandpaper to leave grooves along the claw. I had planned on sanding out all the gouges, but they looked to me like different layers of exposed bone so I left some of them. I also chiseled in some scratches and chips.
For painting I started with a coat of flat black, then a mist of bronze, then a mist of brown...then dabbed on satin black with a large brush.
I am pretty happy with the results! The first pic is with a flash...shows the colors better. The second one is without and shows the details better...
