Picture of How to Make a Death Note

This is a basic tutorial on making a Death Note from the anime. The Finished product of my first instructable.



You Need:
SPRAY PAINT-black and white
TAPE-masking tape
oh and a well ventelated room

Step 2: Prime the Top Half

"prime" the top half wwiuth white spray paint *(HINT: it will take about three coats)*

Step 3: Putting the Letters On!

Believe it or not you're about half way done.
The letters on is the most tedious and aggravating step.
This is where you need the tape, and a pencil.
Tracing the "Death Note" lettering is good but if you can't trace it free handing it is always good! Trace or free hand it on the tape the using a regular knife or "exacto" knife cut it out and place it on the "Primed" notebook making sure it's good and on tight or you will get imperfect letters. (I figured it out that the hard way:))

Step 4: Black Paint

now all you need to do is spray the whole note black. Front and back after you apply the tape letters, the finished product might take more than one coat of paint!!

Congrats now all you need to do is peel the tape off of the notebook and your done

I saw a pic of blues clues but lights head was on blue and it said" careful or I will write your name in my handy dandy notebook."

This one is a pretty funny reference to both Portal and to L's death at the hands of Rem..

Spray paint can cause cancer, but only in California.
