How to Make a Flamberge - part 2

In this part of the tutorial we start the building of the sword.

Part 1 of the tutorial is here

 

 

Cut out the template pieces

 

Print up the template and cut out the pieces. This is an easy project and there are only six pieces.

 

Cut out the small internal pieces

On the two smaller parts (guard and emblem) also cut out the internal parts.

 

Assemble the template

Tape together the four pieces of the template to make the sword . They are in order from left to right one, two, three, four.

 

Trace teh template

Place that template onto foam board or cardboard and trace around it. You place it diagonally onto the foam board. And you do it twice - on separate sheets of foam board.

 

Trace the small pieces

Trace the small pieces also. Each piece is traced twice. You see them all here except for one blade piece which is on another sheet of foam board.

 

Cut out the pieces

Now cut out all those pieces.

Will's Tips on Cutting Foam board: Don't try to cut all the way through it in one swipe. Use a really sharp blade and make three passes. the first pass just cuts the top layer of paper. Second pass cuts the foam and the third pass cuts through the bottom layer of foam.

 

NextOk, Let's get to making the sword

I continue in my series of tutorials on how to make armor out of foam. And now we make the helmet. And a neat thing about this helmet is that the visor goes up and down.
