In this instructable i am making another Nordic sword because i wasn't happy with the previous one i made :P

Things you will need:-
  • Knife
  • EVA foam
  • Styrofoam
  • Marker pen
  • Black metal paint
  • Silver metal paint
  • Polyurethane resin
  • Ruler

Step 1: Step 1

So first bring up an image of what you want to make and scale it to the right size.


Now you can cut the template out and stick the parts together!
<p>do you carve the inner details in with a knife or just make the foam thinner?</p><p>thanks</p>
<p>i was also just wondering if the polyurethane resin is toxic</p>
<p>Ok so first i made the middle part of the blue foam thinner (this is tricky and a bit annoying) then the finer detail is done with thin children's foam :) </p><p>For polyurethane use a mask as it is toxic and also paint it on outside! :P Once its dry the sword should be a bit more solid but still not perfect, i'm gonna experiment with fiberglass resin in the future, hope this all helps! </p><p>Thanks!</p>
