For durability, I highly suggest making the whole sword base out of wood and making the details from PVC foamboard in varying thickness :)

and yes PVC foamboard can be sanded and smoothed :D

thanks very much for getting back to me .. see if i used the thin kinda wood stuff .. you know the kind they use to pannel the back of a chest of drawers or something would that be ok for reinforcing it do you think?? also ive heard of people pva glueing there props to harden them .. does that work ?? :D

The PVA glue method is actually true! hehe.

make sure the thickness would atleast get past 1/4 inch so you know it will really bear its own weight. any dimension thinner than that is a no-no :)

WOW, simply wow!
do you sell your works? or at least show them at the festivals and cons? would love to see it in real life, especially as it seems to be a 'workable' one (meaning, it would be, if it was actually metal)

SO does it ave screws to hold it togeather or did you solve the snap apart problem?
Reply
:iconkerse101:
Kerse101 Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
yes it has screws to hold everything together. one good thing with this too is that even if one blade is taken away. you can still screw the other parts together. :)

I'm not really into Final Fantasy (although the games are pretty cool) but that is amazing!I think I've fainted.  Looks like real metal, how did you manage to accomplish the metallic shine?
Reply
:iconkerse101:
Kerse101 Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
The metallic shine was achieved by spraying metallic silver over a matt black base layer :)

wow - stunning! How did you made the blade edges with the foam board? And what kind of paint did you use for the metalic effect?

:iconkerse101:
Kerse101 Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hi! I actually just did a shallow cut on the near edge of the blades to bend them to a certain degree and adhere them to the other sheet of foamboard using superglue. this giving the tapered edge of the blade. I am bad at explaining hahaha oTL I'll send you a little illustration later on today :)

alright! so here it is. as i stated in the description i used Expanded PVC foamboard aka Sintra. Cut two identical pieces and made a light cut on the other one to make a little foldable flap. that flap was folded just a little and adhered to the uncut opposite part. that way, I have created an edge to the blade. although it's only one-sided. but that's how it exactly looks like in the film :)
