How to Make Dragonglass From Game of Thrones




About: Hi, My name is Luigi "Ludvic" for the friends, I really like the recycle, the technology and the Chemistry, another of my hobby is Videomaking and I love Youtube, You can check my project on LudvicTV' Chane...

Today I want to show you this tutorial for make the Dragonglass from Game of thrones series!

It's really easy and the final result it's Amazing!

the idea behind this project it's the good propriety of the sugar, when you melt over 300 fahrenheit and after leave to cool you can see a good substitute of glass, in this case the color of the cola and the hight temperature make this caratteristic color, like Obsidian.

Click Here or below to see the Video!

Step 1: Moldable Clay

first you need a model for this tutorial.

I used this moldable clay, in my country the name it's DAS but you can find in every market, usually near the play and the toy category.

Step 2: Melt the Cola!

Pour the Sugar in a pan and melt with a little bit of cola, inside the cola there is a lot of colorant, this it's a good think for this project because this color it's the same of Dragonglass, the obsidian.

Get up the mixture over 300 Fahrenheit, don't care if you burned, it's a good thing, only you have a little difficulty after, when you get in the mold

Step 3: Cool Step

Set the Dragonglass-sugar in a fresh place and leave for 1 hour, after remove from the mold

Step 4: Protective Layer

Now one of the most important step.

Get a transparent nail polish or other paint and cover the piece of Dragonglass, this prevent the glass to get "sticky"

Step 5: One Last Things

after you can finish the work with a little Finishing touch, I get a cord from gunnysacks and used for make the Handle of the knife and a knot on the arrow.

Fix with a little drop of the glue and you're finish

Step 6: Finish!

Thank you so much for your attention!

    Actually dragonglass is (in the series) a common name in Westeros for obsidian.

    Obsidian is actually pretty cheap, so you could also make dragonglass daggers that would look exactly like in the series. It would be awesome if you tried that.

    Yes the Guys reply you right, the durability isn't really longer if you don't cover very well with the paint, but i see other technique to make the similar effect but not very cheap (comparate to my project

    obviously)... I leave here the video and you can see the result

    This guy made the awesome glass sword from skyrim, check it :D

    Does anyone know if this technique would work on a more durable material? Alot of the finish looks like it's part of the substance rather than the varnish.


    I can't say for sure because I haven't actually done this but sugar art can last forever, if it is sealed well and stored properly. I wouldn't recommend dropping it, or trying to use it as a prop, if that's the kind of durability you're thinking of. But as an ornament to hang on the wall or display on a table, it should be fine.

    really nice idea!! and so easy!!
    i don't know if it could be, but maybe if you don't put the protective slayer, i think you can eat it or not? if it's like that, you can try to put it in another contest ;) ...
    english is not my native leguage, so i hope i explain my self!

    Yes man...but I don't think is very good to eat, because to make this color i leave the coke and the sugar a lot on the stove and Burned sugar isn't very healty :D

    But, if you want you can make the same thing but with caramel and corn syrup, I see many recipe for make candy or similar :)

    You can eat it, but I don't know what it would taste like when it is made with Coke. It should taste okay if you don't burn it.

    The Das clay used for the mold might be a problem. I don't know if it is safe to use with food. The author might know.

    Very cool idea. But I have to waste a can of Coke to do it.... I'm not sure I am willing to make that sacrifice.

    Wow! This is such a clever idea. The finished effect is great!
