How to make an anvil part 2

In this part of the tutorial we finish off the Anvil setup by actually making the anvil.

Its not a complicated process, just a matter of shaping it down with some tools.



Draw the anvil shape on foam

We started out with a block of foam. Just draw the shape of an anvil on it, both the side and the top.


Cut the foam pattern

An X-acto knife or small hobby knife is great for establishing the shape of the anvil.


Using a hot wire foam cutter

And a hot wire foam cutter is also a great tool for getting some of the shape.


The amvil shape is done

Ok, now we check it for size.


Paint the anvil black

Ok, it's ready so let's paint it. Just a plain old black with some hints of silver, particularly silver on the top surface of it.
