Yeah its actually opaque except for the runes. The glowing is more the smoke and energy emanating from it. i did consider making the edges glow but i didnt want it to look cheap and hokey so i just went with the glowing runes. And thank you very much!
Thanks! The sword was constructed from pvc sheets so the inside remains hollow. (kinda like pepakura) the runes were cut out with a box cutter and the leds are wound round the pvc pipe i have down the center for the core
