|Time Taken :||4 hours|
|Katana I made from balsa wood laminated with cartridge paper for my girlfriend's Enternal Sonata costume. |
Paper is glued to the balsa to added strength and flexibility as well as also concealing the grain of the wood. The edge was then sanded to create the 'blade' and then covered with interior filler to hide the grain ready for painting. A final light sanding to smooth and then sprayed with car primer and spray paint.
