Our Celtic Studies

Our Celtic axes are moving closer to completion. The boys have added several shades of colour to them. What you can't tell from the photos is the effective wood grain they added to the handles. The next decision to make concerns realism(?!)Older brother favoured blood splattering on the blade, very easy and lots of fun to spray the paint about.Another option is to paint some Celtic knots or other Celtic art on the blade or handle.The difficulty is deciding how realistic one wants to get.As Aunty Mary is discovering in her whirlwind study of British history with her class this term, these were barbaric times...but the question remains...how real do we want to get!! The torcs were much easier to design.stay posted for the final outfits...the broaches and cloaks are still on the drawing boards.
