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.
<-I'm using this 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).



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


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


Glue the belt with a Hot melt(glue gun).



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


Cutting was completed.


Cut out Clear plastic sheet.



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.



Use Aluminum stick as a core.
You can use a Wood stick, a plastic stick, a Gardening stick made by glass fiber instead of it.
(If you worry about strength, insert Gardening stick made by glass fiber the inside of Aluminum stick.Details are here.)
Cut it into appropriate length with a Pliers.


Glue the Aluminum stick.
Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).



Glue the Aluminum stick.
Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).


Glue another blade.
Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).
(If you want to more strong blade, use also Plastic sheets. Details are here.)


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.


Filling was completed.


Glue edges of the blade.
Glue with "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan).
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.



Paste Liquid instant glue to edge of blade.


Painting was completed.


Make guard.
Copy the edges of Templates on a material with a pen.
Cut out 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.

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


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


Cut out 5mm thick EVA foam.


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.)
