Eleena Daru Thermal Detonator
This sale is for the thermal detonators worn on Eleena Daru's belt. (Or any other character you may need them for!)
The detonators are rotocast in a durable polyurethane plastic which is partially hollow. I fill the mold halfway up, then close the mold and rotocast it so that the center is hollow to reduce the weight.
To attach the detonators to my belt, I drilled a starter hole in the back of each one and then connected them to my belt with machine screws. They've been on the belt for five years now, and they're still firmly attached. The plastic on one side is always a bit thicker than the rest of the piece based on where the largest 'puddle' of plastic is located inside when the liquid plastic suddenly gets too stiff to move any further. You can determine the thickest side by setting the detonator on a table and letting it come to rest with the heaviest side down. That is the best side to screw onto your belt!
The detonators are sold individually for the folks who don't want a full set. Eleena wears 2 detonators on her belt, and is shown holding one more in the concept art.
Unfinished Casting - These detonators are right out of the mold with no finishing work. They will have small air bubbles along the ridge lines that you will need to fill with putty, a minor seam line to clean, and they should be washed with dish soap before painting to remove any traces of mold release. The two red buttons will be shipped in a bag, ready to be glued in place after the detonators have been painted.
Painted Casting - These detonators have had the air bubbles filled and they will be sanded, primered, and painted silver and blue. (Sorry to charge so much for these, but it takes me a really long time to paint around all those silver rings!) The red buttons will be glued in place. If you prefer to glue them yourself so that you can weather the detonators before gluing in the buttons, add a note at checkout to let me know.
Weathered Casting - These detonators have had the air bubbles filled and they will be sanded, primered, painted silver and blue, and then weathered to match the style of the detonators on Eleena's belt. They will also include the circle of contrasting silver on the top and bottom.
The photos shown in this sale are not of the same detonators which would be shipped to you. They are examples, so I won't have to take pictures of the same basic thing over and over again! The pieces I ship will be cast from the same mold, and will look identical save for any natural variations in the casting and painting process.
Combined Shipping Costs:
The castings will be shipped in a small box if they are ordered alone. If they are ordered with other items from my shop, I can combine shipping and refund any extra shipping costs that were charged.
I would be happy to help with any Eleena Daru costuming questions, so please feel free to ask!
