Make the Princess Zelda Sword


In this part of the tutorial we finish off the sword by adding the ancillary pieces then painting it all up.

Part 1 of this tutorial is here



Apply mod podge

Before gluing the pieces together you should seal the sword with something. This is optional but a good idea. We used mod podge.


Attach the foam pieces

Then glue all six of the ancillary pieces to the sword. Three go on this side of the sword and three go on the other side.


This side view picture shows all the pieces glued on.

There is some detail drawing lines on the sword blade and on the ricasso. You can add these with ball point pen. The template shows you the drawings. Use tracing paper if you need it.

The only thing remaining is the painting scheme and some detail work! You use gold, silver and Purple for the sword. And the various detail lines can be strengthened with pencil or ball point pen.

And that's it! Your Zelda Princess sword is done!

Make the Zelda Hylian Shield

The zelda sword was a big success so I figured I would do the shield too. Pretty easy project, just need a couple of sheets of cardboard and some paint. Make the Zelda Hylian Shield
