Attention at the time of work
Let's consider the following things for accident prevention and health.

-When it uses a thing including the thinner(Bond, lacquer thinner etc) and the spray, make good ventilation.
And wear a gas mask and .
<-I'm using this mask.

-When you toast mterials etc, make good ventilation.
And don't breathe smoke, don't put smoke in your eyes, wear a gas mask.

-When you dig mterials etc with Soldering iron, make good ventilation.
And don't breathe smoke, don't put smoke in your eyes, wear a gas mask.

-Do not use the lighter and tools with heart near the things which are easy to burn such as paint or thinner Bond.

-Turn off an outlet and the switch of the tool as soon as you have finished using it.

-Read labels of materials and tools carefully, and understand how to use.

How to make
When I make bome, I referred Iceman's method.
Iceman's Twitter Iceman's bomb

Make Templates from "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan).
Mark scissors.

Templates was completed.

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.
←10枚入り ←50枚入りお得パック

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.


Cut the corner into slant with a Box cutter.

Shave the corner with a Box cutter.

Shaving was completed.

Remove the corner by toasting with a Lighter.(Don't breathe in the smoke and don't put in eyes)


Make a plural by above process.

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.
This is easy.

-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.

-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.

-Armors without a moving part.

Gesso or Black Gesso

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

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

-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.)

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

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

Lacquer Spray or Bottle lacquer paint


I use Gesso in this tutorial.

Paint Gesso twice or three times with a brush.
Dry it about 2 ~ 6 hours.

Paint black color with Lacquer Spray.

Paint silver Bottle lacquer paint by Drybrush painting.
(Drybrush painting is easy, you can do it with a paint brush. Details are here.)

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.

Cut with a Box cutter.

Glue scissors to an empty can.
Glue with a Liquid instant glue.
When you use a Instant glue Accelerator, Hardening speed becomes fast.
(Smoke may be generated. Don't breathe in the smoke and don't put in eyes.)


Instant glue can glue a large surfaces easily.
But it can't glue a small surface such as this photo well

Then you should use a following spray.
I always use this.
Watch movie.

Instant glue Accelerator
This can glue surfaces in several seconds.
When you use 100ml, you can make a armorset or about three weapons.
←100ml ←180ml ←420ml

About instant glue
I use general liquid Instant glue.

Case of sticking except instant glue.
"Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) can glue too. It's can glue narrow surfaces too.
But it's take time.
Moreover, when you use Thinned "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) as a undercoat,
glued surfaces may melt.
(If you use Gesso, there is no problem.)


Glueing was completed.

Cut out Wood.

Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).

Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).

Wrap a Plastic tape.
