How to make
Make Templates from "Kousakuyousi"(one of hard paper in Japan).



Make blade.

Cut the tip of blade a little.


Crease by tracing with a ballpointpen.
(The red line is the crease.)


Make crease to blade.


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).



Heap a Hot melt(glue gun) for reinforcement.


Serve a lot Hot melt(glue gun) at a tip.

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 super glue to edge of blade.


Glueing was completed.


Make guard.
Copy the edges of Templates on a material with a pen.
Cut out 10mm 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.

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


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.)
-Instant glue-Small spray-Big spray

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.)
Heap a Hot melt(glue gun) on the border.


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


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.

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



Draw patterns with a Hot melt(glue gun).


Make hole with a Pinvice or Prick punch etc.



Lets blade pass to hole.
Paste bass of blade. Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).


Make grip.
Use a PVC pipe(diameter 26.0mm).
Cut a PVC pipe.
PVC pipe can be cut with a saw.
But a Pipe cutter is more better.
It can cut quickly and neatly.



This is a video of cutting method of PVC pipe, bending method, jointing method.


Cover the PVC pipe.
Glue with a Hot melt(glue gun).

Glue with a Liquid super glue.


Roll Packaging tape. It's used in 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).

Gesso or Black Gesso
or

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

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.

I use following paint.


You can use acrylic paint, when you use Gesso.

I use Thinned "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) in this tutorial.
But I recommend Gesso for begginers.


Paint "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) thined with lacquer thinner three or four times.
Don't use fire until drying, because "Bond G17" burns easily. Don' use a Lighter etc until drying.
