Dante's Sword (DmC4)

So I've been working on Dante's sword trying to make it look exactly the same as the original but with cardboard.
I'm done with the blade and it looks really nice but I'm having trouble with the hilt (the ribs, skull and handle)
I thought about using clay or crack filler but I'm really confused whether to attack the clay on the stick or attach a cardboard base first.
A friend of mine told me to use thick wires but I didn't really understand what he meant. I don't wanna bother him since he's kind of a celebrity lol.
Any ideas? Thanks

I think I kind of know what you mean.

The horn on my Monster Hunter sword had a little base of MDF so that I could work the clay I used for the horn (apoxie sculpt). This base gave me a good uniform space to ensure the horn was the correct size and could be used as a guide of sorts. So I suppose I would say lay out your cardboard first then use the clay once your guide is layed out.

Other than that if you post pictures of your progress we could probably give you more accurate help.

Hope that helps though!
