-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 the blade.
Make a strong material by glueing "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) and Plastic sheets.
Put "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) side by side.
Glue 0.5mm thick Plastic sheets with "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) while straddling borderlines of "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan).
Don't use fire until drying, because "Bond G17" burns easily. Don' use a Lighter etc until drying.
After this, the plastic side is used as the face, the paper side is used as the back.



(If you make a blade with only "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan), refer here.)

Copy the edges of Templates on a material with a pen.
Cut out 0.5mm thick Plastic sheets.


Cutting was completed.


Use Iron gardening stick as core.
Cut it.
When you use a Freeway coping saw, you can cut it easily and neatly.
You can cut also Pliers, nippers, diamond files.



Peel with a Box cutter to easily bend.


I used this in this time.


Bend it to a paper pattern.
Bend Iron gardening stick by hand.


Bending was completed.


Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).



Glueing was completed.


Glue another blade.
Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).


Glueing was completed.


Glue the edge of blade.
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.)

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


Fill the back of blade with a Hot melt(glue gun).


Cut out 0.5mm thick Plastic sheets.


Stick to the back of blade.
Glue with a Liquid instant glue.


Cut unnecessary points with Box cutter.


Heap "Black instant glue(one of instant glue in Japan) on the joint etc.



Polish heaped points with about 120 ~ 400 grit sand paper.


Spray Surface Primer.
Cracks and hollows stand out after drying.



If there are cracks and hollows yet, repeat heaping and polishing.


Spray Surface Primer.


Polish and make the surface gloss on the surface.
Polish with Sand paper of 2000grit.


Make the grip and grip guard.
Copy the edges of Templates on a material with a pen.
Cut out 5mm thick EVA foam.
Cut out 2mm or 1.5mm 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.

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】

(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 black color as undercoat color with Lacquer Spray.
