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

I always use "Running fire box cutter","Blade breaker",Cutting mat.
"Blade breaker" can break the blade easily.


Use Standard art knife or Cushion grip art knife to cut small ornaments etc, too.



Glue with "Bond G17"(one of sticky 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 sticky glue in Japan) is useful for the large area.)

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 ←420ml

About super glue
I use general liquid super glue.

Form by shaving with a Box cutter etc.


Remove the corner by toasting with a Gas toach or a Lighter.(Don't breathe in the smoke, be careful about fire)
(When the area is large, using Gas toach is easier.)

-It needs thinner, then you must work outdoors.
-It burns easily.

-About paint
I use following paint.


You can use acrylic paint, when you use Gesso.



I use "Zoukei be-su" as undercoat this time.
But it's sold only in Japan.
Substitute Gesso or Wood glue thinned with water.


Paint "Zoukei be-su" twice with a brush.
Dry it about 2 ~ 6 hours.


Paint gray color as undercoat color with Lacquer Spray.


Paint brown with Lacquer Spray.


Paint tan color Bottle lacquer paint by Drybrush painting.


Drybrush painting is easy, you can do it with a paint brush.
Read here or watch this video.


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.



I finished painting.


After painting
Cut out cloth.


Fold the ends with iron.


Sew the ends with a sewing machine.


Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).
