How to Make Katarina's daggers Part 3


In this part of the tutorial we add the various ornaments and details to the sword.

Part 1 of this tutorial is here


Add handle pieces

Parts D are handle pieces so glue them right onto the handle of the sword, one on each side.









Cut out the detail piece

Next cut out the ornament templates F1 and F2.










GLue detail piece onto cereal box cardboard

And glue them onto cereal box cardboard so they form a continuous pattern.









Cut out the detail piece

And cut it out.










Cut the details

This is an optional step - You can use a sharp hobby knife to cut out all those details on the ornament. This will look best. But, if you don't want to do this step that is ok. You can just paint it later. It still will look great.









Apply detail sheet to sword

Now glue that ornament onto the sword. Test it first before you apply glue. There is a right way and a wrong way with this ornamental piece.









Tape the handle

Now tape the handle. Apply turns of masking tape and apply about a two inch layer at the very end to make a pommel like area.








The sword is built

Ok! building the sword is complete.


Next let's finish it off by painting it!
