It's a soft board, and it can be bended.(Details are here.)
And "Lion Board(Koyo Soft Board)" is sold only in Japan.

Then, if you live in except japan, you must use other materials.
A EVA board is usable in substitution for "Lion Board(Koyo Soft Board)".
It's called EVA foam, EVAzote, too.
Many world cosplayers are using EVA board.
(I don't know well about EVA board, sorry. Plase study by Google)
Or, basicly soft and can bended board is substitutes.
Then find the materials in your country.

まず、刃をOLFA社の特選黒替刃に変更することを推奨する。
ホームセンターで販売されている。
この刃は切れ味が通常の刃とは別次元。
特に斜め切りをする場合に威力を発揮する。
私は長年この黒刃しか使っていない。
尚、カッターナイフには大サイズと、小サイズが存在するが、
上記写真の様な大サイズの方が力が入れやすくてオススメ。
←10枚入り ←50枚入りお得パック

切断時はライオンボード、COSボード、コスプレボード等カッターマットに置き、
手でおさえながら切断する。
ライオンボード、COSボード、コスプレボード等を手で持ち、空中で切るのはNG。
刃の切れ味が落ちたと思ったらこまめに刃を折る。

作業をはかどらせたいなら、内部に刃を6枚収納できる連発式カッター
簡単に刃を折る事ができる刃折器を併用すると良い。


カッターナイフでは切りにくい細かな模様等を切る際はアートナイフPROを使うとよい。

Paste together with Liquid instant glue.
Use Instant glue Accelerator to make good progress.
(In use, steam may be generated. But don't don't breath. And don't meet the steam in eyes.)


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

Instant glue can plane surface easy.
But it can't narrow surface well.
Then you should use bellow spray.
I always use this.
Watch movie.

For example, use bellow surface.


Instant glue Accelerator
This can stick surface in several seconds.
100ml can stick one armorset or about three weapons..
←100ml ←180ml ←420ml

About instant glue
General liquid Instant glue is OK.


Case of sticking except instant glue.
"Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) can stick too. It's can stick narrow surface too.
But it's take time more than Liquid instant glue and Instant glue Accelerator.
And "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) may melt stuck surface if you use "Bond G17" painting.
(You should reinfore stuck surface with Liquid instant glue. Or use Gesso painting.)
After all Liquid instant glue and Instant glue Accelerator is the best.

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

Paint.
When you paint "Lion Board(Koyo Soft Board)", You can improve quality as follows
by painting the undercoat beforehand.

-Color becomes well.
-Painting becomes hard to come off.
-Gloss comes out well.(If you don't need gloss, you use no gloss paint.
-You can save quantity of the paint.

If you don't use undercoat, you can paint.
If you hope more quality, you sholud use it.

There are two undercoats mainly.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.Gesso painting (this is easy method) [Easy, for everybody]

Gesso don't contain thinner.Accordingly there is not smell worry.
It's only paintig by bruch, very easy.it can use Acrylic paint as paint.
This method is recommend for weapons, small articles, two or three pieces armors.
But it's easy to peel off than Gesso painting (this is easy method).
Then it's is slightly unsuitable for moving armor and armorset etc.

Details are here.

Undercort>>>Gesso or Black Gesso
or

Paint>>>Lacquer Spray or Bottle lacquer paint or acrylic paint
or
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2."Bond G17" painting (this is hard method) [All-purpose,but hard. For a man used to making props]

It's fill thinner smell in room.Accordingly use outside of a room.
This is onerous method, but it's not hard to peel off. It's almighty method.
Then it's suitable for moving armor and armorset etc.
Don't use fire after painting until drying, because "Bond G17"burns easily. Don' use Lighter etc until drying.
The parts will be charred in seconds.
Details are here.

Undercort>>>"Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) thined with lacquer thinner
-for big things -for small things

Paint>>>Lacquer Spray or Bottle lacquer paint

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In subsequent explanation is use "Bond G17" painting.
But Gesso painting is easy to use.


Usually use thined one.
But I want to make rough surface. Then don't thin and paint "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) as it is.
Don't use fire after painting until drying, because "Bond G17"burns easily. Don' use Lighter etc until drying.
The parts will be charred in seconds.
Desiccate for 4 or 5 hours.(It may become dry for 1 or 2 hours, but Desiccating for 4 or 5 hours is better.)


Paint black color as undercoat color with Lacquer Spray.


Drybrush paint Bottle lacquer paint with paintbrush.
