View Full Version : Making an Anchor

Alrighty, I started a thread about this a while back about how to make May's anchor from Guilty Gear (http://members.aye.net/~gharris/blog/maysmall.jpg) People suggested papermache and liquid resin, and to shape it out of foam. My biggest issue right now is shaping it, should I use styrofoam? If so, what would be the best tools to carve it with, and can I buy it in bulk blocks at a place like Home Depot?

blocks of foam..like that no...your best bet is too..get many sheets of the blue or pink insulation foam..its stiff and comes in sheets and glue them together, then..cut the shape out and go at it will a sander.
Elmers glue works fine!
Then paper mache it...sand it again, then...coat of epoxy, sand again..then paint...I personally would suggest spray paint.

I cant carve the pieces of the anchor with a sander though, it'd be way too much of a hastle, isnt there a type of cutting tool I can use?
