Choosing an epoxy for a glowing knife
Hey everyone! First time posting here! I'm currently working on a low-budget film for a nonprofit featuring actors on the autism spectrum! Of all the exciting effects projects we're working on (not a few haha) I have a specific question. I'm trying to create a real life version of this drawing (I'll attach it below). The plan is for the blade to actually glow, and so we were thinking to cast epoxy tinted orange with a line of led lights inside and then painted over with metallic paint. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on which kind of epoxy to use so that it would be flexible (so as not to snap during light combat) but also not floppy. Any advice would be AMAZING and feel free to ask any other questions!
