Mette, have you already found your sabre (hilt) maker?

I got her a plain saber hilt, from Ultrasabers, that we want to model the texture on to. Any sugestion on what materials to use for the texturing, is most welcome :)

For more bark like details you could do a silicone cast of some type of tree bark. And then use the silicone pad to press on the texture.
That's one of the techniques we use in the SFX buiz :)

No material suggestions from me. I just know a guy who makes killer Talon hilts.

Nope, this is a guy in the US.
M&M already got a hilt so it doesn't matter.

He doesn't want his work to be copied and rarely does anything for sale. He also knows the original Legacy series artist, Jan Duursema.
He`s also the Flagship Eclipse`s detachment leader.

I think, that it´s Thomas John Spanos, that Jouko means, and yes indeed he has made an awesome hilt - sculpted it himself.
