I have a question, on your first example pic, what did you use to color the blade silver? Acrylic silver? It looks so realistic

Well, thanks to the TTC's new policies... My Trunks sword is not allowed at Anime North, so I need to make an alternate one that is good for the convention. This sounds like the perfect solution. If it turns out even HALF as good as one of yours, I will be amazed.
I will be sure to PM you with pictures once I have this completed. Thank you for posting the broadsword instructions.

Where are you getting hot glue at 5 cents a stick?

eh heh heh, though I've put off most of your tutorials so far because I don't know where to get most of the stuff you used from. Example, a dowel?! glue gun...?! lol. BUt, the katana looked too excellent to pass on (drools). Not anymore. I'm going to try too! Do you think I can find such stuff in an art store? Sorry about such silly questions...^__^;;

Could you just contract someone to help you make the katana... I mean personally I am not very skilled in the kraft of cardboard swordmaking...

One thing about practicing is the only thing you would be using would be the cardboard, hotglue and time. The cardboard should be free (see dumpster diving), hotglue is cheap at 5-10 cents a stick and time is however much you want to invest. The hardest thing that i can see looks to be painting. Thank god for knowing art majors who will help paint lol

Looks to be broken down like this:

Glue cardboard together
Layer cardboard and glue layers together
Cut out shape
Cut out slot along length of blade to put wood core in.
Layer cardboard on top to hide the core
Fill in areas with Glue that have holes
shape & Paint

Ill take a bunch of photos when i go through this, but it wont be for another week or two. Have a conference to go to next week.
