In an attempt to make a gun for cosplay order, I used cardboard. And surprisingly it turned out really great.
- 3mm cardboard
- Elmer's glue
- Water colors or markers
- Access to a laser cutter. Or you can use a stencil knife and a printer.
Step 1: Step 1: Cut the Layers
If you have access to a laser cutter, great. Just laser cut the attached files.
And if can't use a laser cutter you can use the attached files and print them using a paper printer and then use the print out's to cut the cardboard with the knife.
Step 2: Step 2: Glue and Paint
You can follow this image as a guide to put the layers on top of each others. Or you can refer to the attached file where I used different shades of color fill to indicate the order of the layers.
