Attention at the time of work
Let's consider the following things for accident prevention and health.

-When it uses a thing including the thinner(Bond, lacquer thinner etc) and the spray, make good ventilation.
And wear a gas mask and .
<-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, wear a gas mask.

-When you dig mterials etc with Soldering iron, make good ventilation.
And don't breathe smoke, don't put smoke in your eyes, wear a gas mask.

-Do not use the lighter and tools with heart near the things which are easy to burn such as paint or thinner Bond.

-Turn off an outlet and the switch of the tool as soon as you have finished using it.

-Read labels of materials and tools carefully, and understand how to use.

How to make
Make Templates from "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan).
When you want to know detailed tutorial of making Templates, browse this page.



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.



Make the baldes.
Copy the edges of Templates on a material with a pen.
Cut out the glued board.


Make a line at the center.


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.)

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


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 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.

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.
