- Step 1
Gather your supplies.
- Step 2
Begin measuring the outline of the sword and pencil tiny dots on the wood.
- Step 3
Connect the dots.
- Step 4
Using an Xacto knife and a new blade, cut out your sword. It's a good idea to have a cutting mat or cardboard under your sword.
- Step 5
Once you have completely cut out the sword, place it on your second piece of wood and trace around it. Cut out this piece as well.
- Step 6
Create another outline inside one of the pieces of wood by measuring and creating equidistant dots from the edge. Cut out the center piece.
- Step 7
Using your leftover wood, cut out a base for the sword and two strips to go over the top and bottom of the base.
- Step 8
Gather the square pieces you will need for the diamonds on the sword. I used 1 small, 10 medium and 1 large squares.
- Step 9
Following the instructions on your spray paint can, spray paint the sword and the interior sword base red.
- Step 10
Using your orange/yellow, spray paint the center of the sword. You might want to do a few practice sprays first. Check with your hardware or hobby store to see if they have thin spray paint nozzle replacements.
- Step 11
Spray paint the outer piece of your sword silver. To get the black edge, spray paint a line of black inside the shape. This will allow a little bit of the black paint to spray onto the edge, leaving the outside silver.
- Step 12
Spray your squares and base lines silver. Go over them quickly with the black spray paint.
- Step 13
Paint the handle of the sword brown. Draw your diamonds with a pencil.
- Step 14
Using a Sharpie, go over your penciled lines. With the remaining brown paint, roughly paint over the edges of your marker.
- Step 15
Begin gluing your pieces together.
- Step 16
Glue the large diamond to the handle of your sword.
- Step 17
Starting at the ends of the base of your sword, paint a gradient effect using your fingers, a paper towel or a paint brush.
- Step 18
Using a paintbrush, paint the inside edge of your sword black.
- Step 19
Place a small drop of silver paint on the center of each diamond on the sword's blade. Seal the sword with a sealant spray if you like.
- Step 20
