in #art2 years ago

Today I will be making the Soldier's Sword from The Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild.

I start by making a paper pattern of the handle and the blade.

Then I cut out all of the pieces. Then I will cut out a long strip through the middle for the dowel rod to fit in.

After that I glue all of the pieces together.

Once all the pieces are glued together I use my new belt sander to sharpen the blade and round the handle.

For the guard I cut out two nine inch strips.

And then I glued those onto the sword.

After that I cut out two circles out of 1mm foam one bigger than the other. The size of the the circles depends on the size of your pattern.

Then I glued all four pieces to both sides of the sword.

Now its time for the paint. I use Plastidip for the first layer.

After the Plastidip is all dried I spray the sword with silver spray paint.

After everything is dry I use shoe polish to make the sword look dirty.

Now that the shoe polish is done I spray the sword with clear protection coat.

Then I wrap the handle with black hockey tape.
