I need to find a way to make an AX prop out of something other then foam as it will be banged against things and used very roughly. I was thinking a pick ax handle bought at home depot and maybe some wood carved in the shap of the head of an AX? The problem is it has to be very, very dull and i am not an acomplished painter. So i cant paint it to look sharp with a fear of messing it up. Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciate as to what i can do to make it look very, very reall, but keep it very very dull?
