Step 1: Gather Your Materials
For this instuctable you will need:
Hot Glue Gun
A paper knife (not shown in the picture)
Red and Blue Paint
Spray Paint (silver, gold)
A old white shirt
Step 2: Draw Your Sword
First you need to draw a shape of your sword on the piece of cardboard. You can draw a arrow, a axe or whatever, it's your choice.
Step 3: Cut It Out
Then you cut it out. I suggest you use a knife first, then use a scissors to trim it.
Step 4: Spray Paint It
Next spray paint your cardboard sword.(I got this picture from another instructable) You can paint it any colour you want. Make sure you spray a thin layer so it would dry quicker and wouldn't make the cardboard soft and weak.
Step 5: Mix Colours Into Blood
Mix red with a little tiny bit of blue to make it look like blood. Add some water but not to much or else it will lose the consistency and it will not look like blood.
Step 6: Brush the Blood Paint Onto the Sword
Use a dry brush and dip it in a little bit of paint. Gently brush it over the sword so it would look like scratches of blood and you can still see the spray paint. You can but a little bit more blood on the tip.
Step 7: Wrapping Tape
Wrap duct tape on the handle to make it stronger and clear tape around the sword to make it waterproof.
Step 8: Cut the Sword
Cut the sword in half. Doesn't matter where but cut it in half
Step 9: Stick the Sword
Stick the two half pieces of the sword on the shirt. One on the front and one on the back make sure it looks like its stabbed into you. Hot glue works best.
Step 10: Small Cardboard Piece
Cut two small pieces of cardboard and hot glue the under the shirt where you stuck the sword so it can keep it stable.
Step 11: Spread Blood Around Your Sword
Put the rest of the blood paint around the place where you stuck your sword so it looks like you are bleeding. Make sure you spread it over the front and back. The spare paint you can brush it lightly around the shirt.
Step 12: Let It Dry
Be patient, let it dry. If you don't it will spread all over your clothes or your body when you wear it.
Step 13: YOU ARE DONE
YOU ARE DONE!!!
