Make Soul Edge from Soul Calibur - Part 2


In this part of the tutorial we continue making the sword and we also make the eyeball.

Part 1 of this tutorial along with a video is here



Apply Paper Mache

Now apply a coat of paper mache to the whole sword. When applying strips you overlap them by thirds. One third of a strip overlaps the previously laid strips.

Once this layer is completely dry you can apply a total second coat of paper mache. Use a fan to help it all dry.


How to make paper mache

How to Make Paper Mache - This is a really simple thing to make. You mix two cups of water with two cups of flour. Then you stir in one tablespoon of salt. Continue to mix it until creamy. That's it!


Sand it after it dries

Once all the paper mache is dry you can sand the sword smooth.


Prime with white

Now prime it with a white paint.


Let's Make the Eyeball


Paper mache

Ok, blow up a balloon to about a five inch diameter. And paper mache it. Do two coats of paper mache so it is nice and strong.


Mod podge it

Coat the eyeball with something to make it stronger. This can be Mod Podge or white glue mixed 50/50 with water.


Paint eyeball white

Paint the eyeball white. And if you want it to have a nice richness to it mix white paint 50/50 with Mod Podge.


Print up an iris and pupil

Now find yourself a nice image of a pupil and Iris and print it up in color so it is about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. This is about right for our sized eyeball. You might want to adjust the size of yours depending on the size eyeball you made.


Darken pupil

Turn the paper over and darken the pupil with a black marker. This is to keep it nice and black when you wet it.


Seal it with clear sealant

Spray it with some kind of a clear sealant. This is an optional step but will make a difference in the eye. It makes it nice and shiny and a bit translucent.


Mod Podge Clear Acrylic Sealer

The perfect final coat! Protect decoupage and craft projects with a dust-and-fingerprint resistant finish. All Mod Podge sealers can be used over waterbase and oil base paint, glaze, lacquer and varnish. Clear, waterproof and non-yellowing



The sealed eye


Cut it

Cut out the eye, put some slits in it like you see here and apply white glue or mod podge to the back of it so you can attach it to the actual eyeball.


Apply it to the eyeball

Wow it looks great!


Add veins

Paint some veins on the eyeball.


Seal it again

Ok, seal the eyeball with a high gloss finish and you are done with it.


NextOkay, Let's continue making the sword
