    For larger swords e.g. Claymore sword, sour_cheese used architect board, cut out the blade designs and used the method I have mentioned in step 4 - 6 to stick the aluminum tape onto the blade. To make the blade ridge more pronounced, she stuffed newspaper into the blade.

    Instead of using a wooden rod, she used a curtain rod bought from spotlight as the base. You can buy wooden rod from Art Friend and use it instead ^^ Its lighter too

    Below are the materials I used to attach the hilt to the sword

    1) Click Erasers. Dismantle them so that you can use the hollow tube

    2) File binder metal strip. I have put the binder beside it for reference

    To attach the hilt:

    1) Bind the metal strips around the wooden rod and hot glue them to the rod

    2) Slot the hollow tubes into the metal strips and hot glue them

    3) Use jumping clay to cover the ugly centre part and you are done ! You may wish to use plasticine for prototyping first as jumping clay is extremely sticky

    Hope this completes the whole picture ^^

    this is great! i wanna try it too.

    Umm..I have a question though and it may sound dumb: What is 'jumping clay'? Are you referring to bouncing childrens' toy putty?

    I think so. ^^ After the clay has dried, you can actually bounce the clay off the ground. Its very light-weight, even lighter than normal clay
