I thought I’d share my FHZ that I made.
I always loved the look of the “Pu” Freehand that came out at a similar time to the MG freehands. I liked it so much that I thought I’d have a go at making one. Here is my Pu FHZ!
It started life as a clear light up FHZ. Firstly, I removed the lights and added a recess to accept silicone.
I then got to work on adding the Plutonium. This part turned out to be quite tricky as the nuclear power plants I got in touch with let me down which was a shame. I then had to find a alternative, so I settled on some glow in the dark powder that is commonly used in resins. Annoyingly, I didn’t take too many pictures of the installation process but I used PVA to paint the inside of the yoyo and sprinkled the powder over it, I did this a couple of times.
I then painted the caps by hand to resemble the “Pu” freehand image. I left the freehand and Duncan logo without paint and used the same powder adding process on these so they would glow.
That’s pretty much it. It added a touch of weight and vibe but nothing major and the response feels good too.
Here are some more photos!
Also, because I didn’t use REAL Plutonium, I didn’t get any hassle from the authorities and my hands didn’t melt off!
