Polymer clay ist Modeliermasse, zum beispiel Fimo. Für das Schwert benutze ich Fimo Light. Sollte es im Bastelladen geben or auch im Internet ;)

Danke,aber ich denke diesesjahr mussich auf schwert und schild verzichten :/ aber die stoffe für links gewand, kappe und kettenhemd sind schon bestellt :D

Vielleicht reicht die zeit aber auch nicht
für handschuhe und stiefel da ich das kostüm bereits zu halloween tragen möchte. Aber dann kann ich das kostüm immerhin als "test" tragen und die reaktion meiner zelda-fan freundin abwarten.:3

I have a question: what happens after you apply the clay 0_o do you need to bake it, or does it dry by itself?

Eressea-sama Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It's air drying clay. So it drys by itself ;)

Any tips on crafting a branched sword?

Well, I never did one but I think you could use the same method. I would take a thicker board, because the branches might breake easiely otherwise...

This is so helpful! May I ask what kind of gab filling adhesive you used? I've been doing some research on a few kinds, but can't find one that would hold acrylic paint. :c Sorry that this is forever ago.. xD

Uhm... I'm from germany, so I have different products here in my craftstores... I used adhesive from "Pattex" here and "molto" here. Don't knwo where u can get them ('caus yuo are from the united states, aren't you?) Maybe you can get something via internet ;)

This is a wonderful tutorial! I was looking up on how to make a sword for my upcoming cosplays but tutorials I searched up were too costly and time consuming, until I stumbled upon yours. Thank you so much for posting this up! One question I have for you is, how heavy is this sword?

:iconeressea-sama:
Eressea-sama Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Well, the red one, that is shown in the tutorial is the haviest, because these big red gems are really havy... but all the swords are so much lighter that any wood sword! You can easiely carry them with you all the day, even if you are a little unsportive girl like me! ;)

Super tutorial! Es hilft mir sehr weiter :)
Wo bekommt man am besten diesen spaltfüllenden Kleber? Im Baumarkt oder im Bastelladen?
Reply
:iconeressea-sama:
Eressea-sama Featured By Owner May 9, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Ich würde sagen im Baumarkt. Spaltfüllenden Kleber gibt es da in großen Tuben. Heißt dann zum beispiel "Montagekleber" ;)

So you didn't have to fire the clay parts?

no, it's air drying clay. ;)

I see, thnaks. That's nice since then you don't have to worry about sir bubbles making it explode in a kiln.

What exactly is the acrylic board? I see that you've said you got it from a hardware store. Is it like a tough plastic material?

Well, the board is hard to describe...
Acrylic boards are very different. there are golored ones and ones clear as glas. These all are very havy because they have a high density. The board I bout is kind of foamed acrylic, that means the top and the bottom are plane, but the board itselfe is lightr ans easy to cut...
Don't know how to describe it better...

Here are some pictures:
This are the many board types you can buy out there: [link] [link]

And this is like what I have used: [link] [link]
On the page where the pictures are from they call it a PVC foamed plastic board. I bought it as acrylic board. So just ask in your local hardwarestore hoiw they call it there ;)

Nice, this actually looks easier than forming thing from wood... I think I'll be using your idea from now on... Totally waiting for part 3. Just wondering, what kind of clay did you use? And aside from a drummel or an electric hand saw, what would be able to cut through that? One last question is where can you find the acrylic poster board?

I'm glad this can help you ^_^

Well the clay I used is this one. But it's a german company so I don't now what the similar or comparable lables or brands in othere countrys are called...sorry.

The board and the clay are realy easy to cut so any kid of saw will do :)

And I got the board in a hardware store. May be you wil ha to ask there... ;)

Thank you for the tips. I will most definitely check this all out for sure. This is way easier than working with wood.

Is the final product light or heavy?

Eressea-sama Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2011  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It's pretty light. But it depends on how bigg the handhold-thing is. - For the Clay is not really heavy but the gems and the gab-filligh adhesive make some weight. So my master sword is much lighter than Yug Verund ^_^

Very Nice, looks like a much easyer way then how ive made mine :D

And for a smoother finish I sugest a couple of coats of spray primer, sanding it between eash coat with some smooth sand paper, And paint it with spray paint. It's amazeing how much nicer it looks with spray paint :D
