Attention in the work
-When you uses a thing including the thinner(Bond, lacquer thinner etc) or spray, make good ventilation.
And wear a gas mask.


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

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

-Don't use fire near the things which are easy to burn such as paint, thinner etc.

-When you finished using tools, pull an outlet.

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

How to make
Make Templates from "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan).



Make blade.
Reinforce 2mm or 1.5mm thick EVA foam.
Glue "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) and EVA foam with "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan).
Don't use fire until drying, because "Bond G17" burns easily. Don' use a Lighter etc until drying.
(If you want more strength, use plastic sheets instead of "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan). Details are here.)



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

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.

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




Copy the edges of Templates on a material with a pen.
Cut out "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan).


Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).
Cut out 10mm thick EVA foam.

Make a core.
Use a "Jiyujizai"(one of wire in Japan) of diameter 10mm.
Cut it with Pliers.
Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).

←様々な太さ有り

Glue the edge of blade.
Glue with a Liquid super glue.
When you use a Super glue Accelerator, Hardening speed becomes fast.
(Smoke may be generated. Don't breathe in the smoke and don't put in eyes.)


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


Super 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 video.


Super 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 super glue
I use general liquid super glue.

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


Glueing was completed.


Make stick.
Use a PVC pipe(diameter 26.0mm).
Cut a PVC pipe.
PVC pipe can be cut with a saw.
But a Pipe cutter is more better.
It can cut quickly and neatly.



This is a video of cutting method of PVC pipe, bending method, jointing method.


When you use this, joint with a stick.


Make a stick.
The best length is 25cm.
There are two methods.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.Iron gardening stick and EVA foam
It's take time, however jointing power is strong.

Cut Iron gardening stick. How to cut is here.
Cut out 2mm or 1.5mm thick EVA foam.
Glue with a Liquid super glue.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.Wood stick
It's a easy method, but jointing power is weak than above method.

Cut a wood stick with a saw.
Shave it with Box cutter as necessary.

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

Polish it with sand paper(240 grid).
It becomes easy to glue.



Bend a PVC pipe by heat.
Use a Gas toach or a gas stove.
A Lighter can bend too, but it takes time.
If you don't want to use fire, use a Heat gun.
When you heat, equip globes.

Bending was completed.


Cut out 2mm or 1.5mm thick EVA foam.
Paste with "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan).
Don't use fire until drying, because "Bond G17" burns easily. Don' use a Lighter etc until drying.
(You may glue with a Liquid super glue. However "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) is useful for the large area.)


Glueing was completed.


Make upper half of stick.
Cut out 10mm thick EVA foam.
Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).

Begin painting.
At first, 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.
-There are several colors one, white black etc.

【Demerit】
-It's easy to come off than Thinned "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan).
 Then, use this for weapons and armors without moving parts.
-The gross is smaller than Thinned "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan).

2."Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan)
This is difficult, however it's almighty.

【Merit】
-It'st hard to peel off.
-It can use for PVC pipe or plastic sheets.

【Demerit】
-"Bond G17" is japanese commodity.
 Then you can't get it easily.
 Please use others. For example, you can substitute wood glue for it.
-You must thin it with lacquer thinner.
-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.
The parts will be charred in seconds.
