Paint it with a broken piece of "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan) as a brush.

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.

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.

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.)
