How to make
Make Templates from Drawing paper.
When you want to know detailed tutorial of making Templates, browse this page.



Copy the edges of Templates on a material with a pen.
Cut out 5mm thick EVA foam.


**********************************************************************

EVA foam is a soft material.
You can process it easily.
Another name is EVA board, EVA zote, Craft foam etc.
I usually use one called "Lion board".
"Lion board" is sold only in Japan.

Watch video.

Use a sharp blade. For example, "Pro Blade".
This is so sharp.

When you cut, put EVA foam on Cutting mat.
Don't cut in the air, while holding by hand.
Break a b blade frequentry, if you feel sharpness of using blade became bad.
If you want to do work more speedy, use "Running fire box cutter","Blade breaker".
"Running fire box cutter" can have 6 pieces blade inside.
"Blade breaker" can break easy and speedy.


Use Art knife PRO for small ornaments etc.

Paint a undercoat on EVA foam.
The effects are as follows.

-Color becomes well.
-It becomes hard to come off.
-Gloss comes out well.
-You can save quantity of the paint.

There are two methods.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.Gesso
This is easy.

【Merit】
-It's usable just to paint with a paint brush.
-Gesso don't contain thinner, then you can use it in the room.
-You can use also Acrylic paint.

【Demerit】
-It's easy to come off than Thinned "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan). (Moving parts in particular)
-It can't use for PVC pipe or plastic sheets.

【Recommendation】
-Weapons
-Armors without a moving part.

【Undercoat】
Gesso or Black Gesso
or

【Paint】
Lacquer Spray or Bottle lacquer paint or acrylic paint
or
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.Thinned "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan)
This is difficult.

【Merit】
-It's sold in D.I.Y shops.
-It'st hard to peel off.
-It can use for PVC pipe or plastic sheets.

【Demerit】
-You must thin it.
-It needs thinner, then you must work outdoors.
-It burns easily.
Don't use fire until drying, because "Bond G17" burns easily. Don' use a Lighter etc until drying.
(It will char in seconds.)

【Recommendation】
-All props
(Props with a moving part in particular)

【Undercoat】
"Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) thined with lacquer thinner
-for big things -for small things

【Paint】
Lacquer Spray or Bottle lacquer paint

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I use Thinned "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) in this tutorial.
But I recommend Gesso for begginers.


Paint "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) thined with lacquer thinner three or four times.
Don't use fire until drying, because "Bond G17" burns easily. Don' use a Lighter etc until drying.
(It will char in seconds.)
Dry it about 2 ~ 6 hours.


Paint gray color as undercoat color with Lacquer Spray.


Paint blue color with Lacquer Spray.


Stick Masking tape on the point you don't want to paint.



Paint black color as undercoat color with Lacquer Spray.


Paint red color with Lacquer Spray.


Peel Masking tape softly.


Paint silver Bottle lacquer paint with a paint brush.


When you paint Bottle lacquer paint, use a paintbrush,silicon cup(Use as a paint plate. It can easy to peel paints after dry.),
panint stick, thinner.


Make a jewel form from a cleare color Hot melt(glue gun).


Make the surface flat by toasting with a Lighter.(Don't breathe in the smoke and don't put in eyes)
Or use Electric stove.
Electric stove is better than Lighter. Because it becomes black when it's toasted Lighter.



Stick Masking tape on the point you don't want to paint.
Paint clear red color with Lacquer Spray.
