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COSボード、コスプレボード、ライオン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。
COSボード、コスプレボード、ライオン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。

But it can't glue a small surface such as this photo well


Then you should use a following spray.

How to paint
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).

【Commodities page】
Gesso or Black Gesso
or

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

【Tutorial video】


【Commodities page】
"Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) thined with lacquer thinner
-for big things -for small things
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-About paint
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.
*When you use Gesso, don't paint it on the PVC pipe. Beforehand do this process.
Or glue Synthetic leather with "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan).


Stand it with a wood struck big nails.


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.
(It will char in seconds.)
Dry it about 2 ~ 6 hours.


Paint black color as undercoat color with Lacquer Spray.


Paint gold Bottle lacquer paint by Drybrush painting.


Drybrush painting is easy, you can do it with a paint brush.
Read here or watch this video.


When you paint Bottle lacquer paint, use a paintbrush,silicon cup(Use as a paint plate. It can easy to peel paints after dry.),
panint stick, thinner.


Paint silver with Lacquer Spray.


Actually, I used a Airbrush too.
If you want to make light and shade, use it.
