Make Dark Repulser -Part 2

 

In this part of the tutorial we continue making the sword.

Part 1 of this tutorial is here

 

 

Cut the bevel

Bevel the blades of each of these sword pieces. A bevel is where you cut it at a 45 degree angle so it comes to a sharp edge.

 

This picture shows what to bevel on each of the sword pieces.

GLue the halves together

Go ahead and glue these two pieces together.

Gluing tip:

We used 3 in 1 glue. It works really well for this. You can use plain white glue and that will be quite good. It just takes a while to dry. You can use hot glue but that is tricky because of how big this sword is. If you don't work fast the hot glue at the beginning will begin to harden before you can apply it to the other end!

Apply white glue to the edges

Now you can strengthen and protect the sword by applying white glue all the way aroudnd the edges.

This is an optional step.

 

Smooth the glue

And smooth it out with your finger. This glue around the edges protects the foam from the paint, strengthens the sword and helps you create a nicer edge on the beveled parts.

This also fills in any cracks between the two sword halves.

 

Cut template part F

Now lets' create the handle add on parts. Cut out template part F and trace two of this on foam board.

 

Bevel the edges

Bevel the edges on these parts just like you see in the picture.

 

Glue onto the sword

Glue those parts onto the handle.

 

Cut out ornamental pieces

Now let's do the various ornamental pieces. Cut out the template pieces labeled D.

 

Trace ornamental pieces

And trace them onto foamboard. Cut them out. Make two of each. They are parts D1 thru D7.

And on parts D1, D7 Bevel all the way around them. These two parts are shaded in the template so you can see what to bevel.

 

Glue on ornamental pieces

Glue those pieces onto the sword. The template shows you where they go.

 

Tape over the handle

Now tape the handle. You can use duct tape, electrical tape or masking tape. We are using brown duct tape but it doesn't matter the color. We will paint over it. This is just for strength and for hand feel.

NextOkay! Let's continue with the tutorial
