Eressea-sama Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Well, I guess it would. I've seen many people making such swords out of wood and in fact an acrylic board ist a little lighter but it has kind of a wooden behavior ;)

If you don't throw them to the ground accidentally (like me... o.O) these swords will live for a loooooong time ;)

Did you put clay on both sides of the sword or only one side? o.o
Reply
:iconeressea-sama:
Eressea-sama Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Both sides, so that it looks 3D from both ;)

How thick is the acrylic board you used? Also, is there a way to hold the handle without using leather? Because the sword I want to make (the black sword of Kirito from Sword Art Online) and it doesn't have something covering the handle ([link]).
Reply
:iconeressea-sama:
Eressea-sama Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hm... The board was round about 5cm thick and the covering of the handle couls also be done with clay ore may be wood... You just need something that is thicker than the board and formable into what shape the handhold has to be...

Thank you for the tutorial! ; 0 ; I've been researching a lot about making a sword. This is really helpful, and your swords turned out really good too!
I'm going to be making two swords of Kirito from Sword Art Online so I hope this works out good for me ; w ;
May I ask how much your total materials had cost? Mainly the Acrylic board, clay, and paint? ; w ; I'm sorry///

:iconeressea-sama:
Eressea-sama Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hey, thanks for the compliment! I'm glad the tutorial could help you! ^_^
Well, the acrylic board was the most expensive material of them all. For the size of the two swords I payed a bit more than 50€ (or 60$). Clay was something less than 20€ and the colors were very cheap. All in all you should get away with something about 70€ for two swords. ^_^ Hope this can hlp you too! ;)

So where does one go about getting acrylic board? A craft store?

...and it struck me last night shortly after I asked this that Acrylic board is another term for plexiglass, which I planned on using for my equipment for Link from the get go. :|
Reply
:iconeressea-sama:
Eressea-sama Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Yes, kind of ;) The boar I used was not as havy as plexiglas and not clear. Don't know how to describe it...

I found some similar to what you're talking about at the hardware store when I went to get my plexiglass yesterday. Well, only tie will tell if I'm actually able to pull this off and successfully make a Goddess Sword.

What kind of air-dry clay do you like to use/find most effective?
Reply
:iconeressea-sama:
Eressea-sama Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Well, the only one I could get was [link] ^_^ but it hase some "bad habits" ;) It shrinkes when it dries so there is no way to stay close to a patern or something... and if it dries to fast it gets some nasty cracks... so if I had to chose I probably would take something else... ;) But at least it works ^^

Thanks, just thought I'd ask! I'm always on the hunt for better materials, but I guess that a problem with the clay no matter what type or brand you get haha

Apoxie Sculpt apparently doesn't shrink, but it is very pricey in comparison to most others. I haven't used it myself, but I've seen it used on various customs before.
