Make the DragonGlass Dagger from Game of Thrones Part 2


In this part of the tutorial we finish making the dagger.

Part 1 of this tutorial is here



Place in heated water

Remember that you can place it back in the heated water at any time and soften it right back up. You can do this as many times as needed.


You can cut off some of the bulk

The big thing that we are doing at this point is getting it to the right amount of plastic. So, roll it out, shape it, knead it to about the size of your dagger. Then you can see how much excess you have. And you can cut away all that excess with either a knife or a pair of scissors.


Reheat and add pigment

Now that we have the right amount of plastic I reheated it again and this time added more of the black plastic pigment beads. Then I kneaded it real well to get a uniform black color.


The color is uniform

Ok, we have a nice uniform black color. It looks great.

Now I shaped it with my fingers into the dagger shape. Putting it back in the water as I needed to soften up.


Shape it with your fingers


Use a knife to create a pattern

Then, while still soft I used a butterknife to put in the cut patterns. This makes it look like it was rough hewn with basic tools. Much like an arrowhead would look.


Wrap the handle with string

The only thing remaining is to wrap the handle. I used twine. But there are lots of other things you can use including leather, cloth, string or even just some kind of paint.


And that's It! Your DragonGlass Dagger is done.
