This project has been over a month in the making but it finally begins! 

Utilizing Eastern57's (from the TCSS and fx-saber forums) excellent olive oil weathering guide I turned my US Aeon hilt into something amazing!


I sanded down the entire hilt with 100 grit sandpaper (as suggested in the weathering guide), and put two layers of olive oil on the hilt.  I was originally going to do the pommel and the hilt separately but was dissuaded by Mikkyo of the Sith. 30 minutes at 550 degrees in the oven bore results i couldn't have been happier with...no second coat was needed! Cheesy

Now I am torn as to which LED color I should use...any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  More pics and updates to come as this project progresses.  Thanks for looking!

LED color is one of those extremely personal choices.  A saber with this type of weathering is going to be your favorite especially if it is your first weathered saber.  What colors are you torn between and why?

I'm torn between a Cyan, Green, or Amber.  Since the saber has an ancient, forgotten look to it a similarly older color would accent it very nicely.

Well, my favorite color is Green though I find myself having more Green sabers than anything else ^\^;; I am however a fan of variety.

i think your best choices would be a cyan, green, artic blue, or a yellow. thats my opinion, but its your choice. if you have too many green sabers you should try something different  Smiley

Great weathering job!

I'd also have to say that an orange or yellow LED would be my vote. Looking forward to this build.

Any relation to the proto-drake?

If so PURPLE! cuz it's epic ;p


joking aside... my personal choice is SRD for a long blade... but it's also perfect for a short off hand red saber >=)...

Then again that's just my taste xD

Or hey I don't see this option thrown around as much... Adegen Silver. =p It'd be an ancient saber, that's soo time lost it has no colour >=)  (or I guess technicly all colour... =O I think it's debate able if a lightsaber in canon is actually considered to work like light, or since it's more tangable if the energy beam has pigment...)

Nice job on the weathering. I have to say Green for the LED. I pictured this with green as soon as I saw it.
