We started by printing a scaled version of the blades, and separating them into the hilt and blades. Then, the pictures were cut out and traced on top of sign foam.
|Blade and hilt cutouts|
|Blade and hilt outlines on sign foam|
- Cut through the trace to get the general shape
- Halve the blade trace to get both blades
- Cut detail into shaped foam
- Prime and paint the finished product (metallic spray paint for a shiny look)
