⚔️ Sword making of! ➡️SWIPE➡️
In the reference, the blade of this sword is shattered. To achieve the illusion of this, I made a core out of thin wood and transparent acrylic rods, which I made removable for transport. The handle is a simple wastewater pipe that is also detachable. I added multiple layers of EVA foam and then defined the shape by carving and dremeling the edges. More details were added with craft foam or bevelled EVA foam, and wooden rivets. Lastly, I added battle damaged and painted the sword with acrylics and neon colours.
It's probably the project I am most proud of, especially considering the size, how stable it feels (not wobbly - I was worried about that while building it) and that it comes apart in 5 pieces so it fits in my bag.
