What you need to make this project:
Download and print out the template. It has the pattern of the sword. Cut out the four pieces and tape them together to make the sword. This is your template. Trace three of those onto your foam board and cut them out.
Leave one of those the full sword shape and for the other two cut away the blade section. You will end up with three pieces that look like this:
Apply white glue to the two smaller pieces and glue them to the large piece. It ends up looking like the next picture. Let it dry. And once it is dried you can sand the edges with some sand paper or a file. Round the edges around the handle and keep the edges of the blade nice and sharp.
All you have to do now is paint it! Here is how I did it.
First paint the blade silverish white and once you have it all that color you add a little bit of light blue to it. Add it while the silverish white is still wet. This way you can spread it around and get the differences in color. Add a little bit of darker blue around the teeth of the blade to get a nice look. And once the paint is dry you should use a pencil to add some details.
To paint the large black handle section you do a similar thing. Paint the whole thing black and while the black is still wet you should add some streaks of a bright red. Once the handle is dry you can paint on some small details like the thin streaks of white. You can even add a little silver and gold if you want.
The sword is done but if you want it to have a bit of a shiny look to it you can use some kind of a spray on sealer. It will make it shiny and protect the colors, keep them crisp.
