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!
What did you use to scale the picture
<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>
