Introduction: Laser Cut Wolverine Claws
Create a set of harmless claws for the perfect costume accessory.
Chrome Spray Paint
(Full Spectrum Laser - Hobby Laser)
Step 1: Cut
Cut your files out with a laser cutter. Engrave the blue lines and cut on the red lines.
Included are the "Small" and "Full" files.
The "Full" file will make a full sized set of claws, while the "Small" file will make a smaller, childrens set.
Each file will make ONE set of claws, so for a pair of claws, you will need to print the file twice.
Step 2: Glue
Glue the center brace along the engraved line. Add glue to all four sides of the brace and center the claw on the line. Hold it in place until it is secure. Do the same with the second bar.
Step 3: Glue Some More
Once the center support is dry, add glue to the edge of the support brace. Slide the outer claw into place. Before the glue is fully set, be sure that the claw is parallel to the first one. Set it aside to dry.
Step 4: Repeat!
Add glue to the remaining end of the support brace. Position the last claw so that it is even and parallel to the previous two.
Step 5: Paint
Once the glue is set and all the pieces are dry, take the claws out to a well ventilated area and coat it with 2-3 layers of spray paint. Give the paint proper time to dry between coats. Optionally, you can add a glossy clear coat to protect the paint from wear and damage.
