How to Make a Foil Tape Sword - Continued

 

This is a tutorial on how ot make a good looking foil tape sword. I give you a lot of different options and techniques. I also show you how you can use various types of materials including chrome tape from an auto parts store.

And this is Robb Starks sword from Game of Thrones. So! Double bonus.

The template is here.

I also have a video tutorial on how to make this project at the bottom of the page.

 

 

The foil tape sword

 

Parts List:

 

 

Cut the template pieces

Print up the template and cut out the pieces.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tape the blade template together

You are going to trace out all those pieces onto your foamboard. But first there are four pieces to tape together. They are A1, A2, A3 and A4. They make up the blade section like you see in this picture. So, tape them together and trace two of those on foam board.

 

 

 

 

Assembly 1

So now let's glue the pieces together. Lay down a "D" piece And glue a C piece right on top of it as shown.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Assembly 2

And then lay down two "A" pieces right on top of that as shown.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Add handle pieces

Now place two of the "B" pieces on the handle just like this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Assembly 4

Next place a "C" and then a "D".

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Assembly 5

The only thing remaining is the pommel pieces. One goes on top and one on the bottom.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The handle is assembled

This is the how the final stacking looks . The handle part is four thick and the guard part is six thick. The pommel part is six thick too.
