Aetheric Energy Wand by CaelynTek Aetheric Energy Wand by CaelynTek
The scientists at the Clan of Teks have finally done it! Advancing on knowledge gained from backward engineering devices found in a laboratory that was destroyed by comet impact, the Aetheric Energy Wand can detect both Ambient and Acute Aetheric energy fields. This ground breaking device can be used to locate and harvest Aetheric energy from the various Aether radiated sites across the world, or be used to detect and disarm Aetheric weapons.

_____________________________________

This new project was born of a random chance find at a Big Lots store, when looking for a second ray gun toy (my last deviation). At first I was just going to make it into a steampunkified light saber, but it soon developed into the AEW when I was trying to figure out how to make the "blade" brighter. Shortening the clear tube brings the mirror at the end closer to the light source. When i figured that out, I decided to abandon the weapon, and make the tool.

The paint job turned out awesome and the choice of metallic tones looks fantastic.

Thanks,

The metallic finish came out better than I had hoped, but I almost ruined it at the last.

It was sprayed with a shiny brass spray paint, then I used Citadel Devlan Mud (a pre mixed brown wash) to add in the depth in the cracks and crevasses on the hilt and handle. I also used it to add depth to the surface details like the stars and the various "buttons" on it.

I have a matte clear coat spray that I have used with no problems in the past, even on this same paint, but this time (luckily I started with the end cap) it nearly ruined the metallic finish. I managed to save the end cap piece, but for the rest of it I ened up using AMACO all purpose brush on sealer, which left only a slightly shiny surface..and made it look exactly as I wanted.
