Start of the Master Sword
After stumbling across something very helpful on my friend's website (www.nadiaxel.com) I decided to start making my Master Sword.
I'll be using a method very similar to hers, but have changed a few things about it to suit my own way of working. Hopefully I should be able to make this one without any help from my dad!
So, I got the template made today and also managed to cut out the cardboard pieces which I'll be using as a base. These are VERY rough on the image, there's a lot of neating up/proper placement/etc to do, so sorry it looks bad right now! It wont when it's done!
I'm using a thin strip of wood between the cardboard pieces to support the sword, and I'll be crafting the 'wings' and decoration with modelling clay as well as building the blade shape with the cardboard and possibly paper clay before papier macheing it all and painting.
Fingers crossed this turns out good!
