Make a Medieval Flanged Mace part 2

In this part of the tutorial we put the parts of the mace together.

 

Start by putting together the two spike assemblies. You glue two pieces together like this. And you do this twice, ending up with two spikes.

 

assemble the spikes

Set those spikes aside for now.

 

The four long and thin rectangular strips are bands that wrap around the handle of the mace. But foamboard strips do not wrap well around that diameter. It will crinkle and wrinkle. So cut them in half along the edge. This makes them thinner.

Cut strips in half along their sides

 

On one end of the dowel wrap and glue a band. Then glue the spike right onto the end.

Then glue on the four flanges. Put them right up against that band.

Add the flanges

 

Now finish off the foamboard by adding the four remaining foam board parts. The arrows in this picture show you where to put them.

Let's finish the mace by painting it and adding an optional leather grip
