Hi there, so sorry for the late reply! 

I won't recommend to swing it, unless you use a strong enough base which probably add on the weight. But if you are strong enough to swing it regardless of the weight, I'll suggest using a single piece of wood as the base for durability. Hope this helps!

So sorry for the late reply! Hope it helped, and hmm as the prop is not with me so I'm not that sure, but I think there are some hairline cracks after the clay dried. But a few coats of paint over it should do the trick!

would this work with wood instead of corrugated plastic? :)

So sorry for the late reply!

It'll depends, as wood would be stronger and easier to work with, but also would mean heavier weight. ^^

Hey, sorry for the slow reply! Hmm I would suggest to practice a little on molding and handling clay before actually starting? Otherwise I see no reason not to try out xD

All the best!

how sturdy would this be when taken to anime conventions more than once?
Reply
:iconathensis:
athensis Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2010
That will depends on how careful you are, haha. My friend (who commissioned this from me) was moderately careful, but there were still minor mishaps such as the chain falling off, or a few cracks appearing. Nothing that can't be fixed after the convention ^^

I was wondering if the DAS clay on this crack at all?
Reply

athensis Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2010
It does leave slight crack marks in the process of the clay drying. After it has dried entirely, apply more clay into the cracks ^^

With careful handling of the prop, the clay should be alright =)

Wow, this is the most amazing Oathkeeper I've ever seen! And its even more awesome that its not made out of wood! How much did this cost? Whats the overall weight of this? Too amazing.
Reply
:iconathensis:
athensis Featured By Owner May 20, 2010
Haha thanks! ^^

Hmm cost-wise, the plastic base was only a few bucks, while the clay was S$6. The weight I can't really describe, but its definitely manageable xD
