Building the blade
Cut "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) into a belt form.


Put "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) side by side.


Paste them



"Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) is sold in only Japan.
It's harder than Drawing paper. The thickness is about 0.5mm.
I'm sure you can't get it.
Then, substitute various thin plastic sheets.


Cut material into the Templates form.
Cut out "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan).


Use a Iron gardening stick(diameter 0.6 or 0.8cm).
Use it as a core.
Cut it wit Freeway coping saw, pliers, nippers, diamond files, etc.
This stick is just a iron stick.
You can substitute various metalic sticks.



I finished cutting.


I used this.
The diameter is about 0.6cm.


Peel with a Box cutter etc to easily bend.


Bend Iron gardening stick by hand.


Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).

Paint it with a broken piece of "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) as a brush.
Don't use fire until drying, because "Bond G17" burns easily. Don' use a Lighter etc until drying.

Reinforce the blade by painting Liquid super glue on the edge.


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


Stroke the back of blade with a tip of Hot melt(glue gun), then the surface becomes flat.

I usually use one called "Lion board".
"Lion board" is sold only in Japan.

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

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.
Break the blade frequentry, if you feel sharpness of the blade became bad.
I use "Running fire box cutter","Blade breaker" too.
"Running fire box cutter" can have 6 pieces blade inside.
"Blade breaker" can break easy and speedy.


Use Standard art knife or Cushion grip art knife for small ornaments etc.

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


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.

Painting
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).

【Commodities page】
Gesso or Black Gesso
or

【Paint】
Lacquer Spray or Bottle lacquer paint or acrylic paint
or
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
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.
