This was a fun little prop I made for a friend based on artwork from Atelier Lise... but you could probably use it for other things too! It looks nice and fantasy and alchemy-like.
It's pre-split into sections for easy printing; only one (the third piece) should require supports, and only on a section that isn't visible in the final product, so messiness is acceptable.
The middle of the prop has space for a 0.5 inch rod for ease of assembly and strength.
Since it's somewhat beyond my modelling ability and probably better made by hand with shrink plastic or such, I omitted the bird at the top and instead added a few holes that can be used to attach the top of the prop to something.
XTC-3D, Molotow Liquid Chrome paint for the top, adhesive vinyl for the middle and a good clear coat of Alclad Aqua Gloss.
