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。

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

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.
