cast to autograph the pulse gun at the Farscape Con in
What a wonderful surprise!

well if I had these reference pics when I made my pulse gun then it
would have been more accurate. What to do? What to do? Well let me
tell you, after World Con I will be rebuilding the butt of my gun to
be more like these in the ref pics. Good luck with building
yours! Questions? Contact me,
|Paper cutouts of the gun and holster for scale. I
used this as a scale to make sure the size was correct. Note
this gun is relatively small. Look at the picture at the
bottom of this page you will see Crais's hand cover the stalk
of the gun. Yes the stalk of the gun is wrong I am deep in the
midst of rebuilding the stalk to be more accurate.
||Plasterscene Clay model
of the Pulse Gun. I used the
paper cut out as a guide as I sculpted the plaster scene clay
gun. Warning plaster scene clay gets soft when it gets hot.
When you are ready to cast the gun my suggestion would be to
put the gun in the fridge for a day to cool it down. The
curing of plaster of Paris there is a lot of heat. You don't
want your gun drooping.<G>
|Plaster of Paris mold half. I used tinfoil for the
parting line. I used tinfoil trays that I suspend the clay
model in the tray. I filled the tray half way with a very thin
liquid of plaster of Paris. When the gun was half way submerged
I stopped filling and allowed the plaster to cure for 24hours.
I then covered the dried half of the plaster with Vaseline and
tinfoil and poured the second half of the mold.|
|Here is the finished mold. tearing the clay out is
the easy part I did a light sanding job to make it nice and
smooth. I used a slow cure epoxy to allow good setting. Fast
setting epoxy can cure unevenly causing soft spots.
||Solid epoxy half. I filled both half of the mold
with epoxy. I mix in s filler it make the epoxy easer to work
with once it has cured. Next I chipped away the plaster. Take
some time removing the plaster.
||The two half ready for assembly and finishing. I
glued the two half together with epoxy. I sanded and filled
the epoxy with what's called red lead. You can get it at any
auto body store. I then primed the gun and slightly sanded

fitting the gun in the holster.
|Finished and painted. All it needs now is the Gun
site on the side. Note: I painted the pulse gun and holster
with Testers Gunmetal Gray.
||Here is the gun and holster. I for one find that the
big attraction to this project was the design of the gun and
holster together. You can't make the gun without the
OK so you can't see it all that well.
But I hope this page has been helpful.
Good luck !
