Hi,um, what brand of foam did you use? I can only find the instalation foam at Home Depot and was wondering if that's what you used. Also, what brand was it? Thanks

I don't remember the brand, and it does not matter if you take _expanding_ foam. despite that I don't think you can get the same brand that I can get in Luxembourg ;)

Just curious.  Did making the sword using the method make it fairly light or is it a bit on the heavier side?

the sword was 8 pounds in total. It's not that heavy actually. Only on long days your arm will hurt xD

Hi!
I was just wondering how you would evenly spray on the expanding foam, like would you spray and carve one side of your saw and then go onto the other or would you spray the entire thing then carve it?

Sorry if my question isn't understandable, I'll try to clarify it if you have any questions about my question ; v ;

Hello,

I sprayed one side and let it completey dry for around 8h, turned it around and sprayed the other side. After everything got sprayed and is dry I started with carving. :)

Wow! This is fantastic!

I have a few questions:
- Is it heavy to hold?
- Is it hard to cut?
- Does it smash easily/Brittle?

You tutorial has given me lots of ideas! Thanks for sharing!

No the foam is rather easy to cut and with the Worbla Layer I can throw it around.
It is a bit heavy for me, since I have to handle it with claws~ Without claws it would be easier. ^^

Hi, I'm totally new to making these sorts of things and am trying to get an idea of cost and such before I jump in. I hope you wouldn't mind answering some questions. Firstly, my husband has asked why do you even need the warbla layer. I haven't seen anyone talk about why it's good to use as a layer so far, but I assume it's because paper mache and foam are difficult to make satisfyingly smooth? Secondly, do you recall how much warbla it took to cover this sword? I am very interested in trying it, but 80$ for the largest sheet can get so expensive if you need a lot. :o Finally, you haven't covered the gesso step, but is it like a canvas ~ where if you are adding many layers it's suggested you sand a bit between each layer to keep the final finish smoother? I'm looking forward to see how your project turns out. You have some pretty crisp costly pictures already. :)

Hey :) I hope I can answer all your questions:

I have to tell you, that the only reason I used Worbla was that someone sold me it rather cheap (because she had to much) and because I'm an impatient person and I wanted to make it as sturdy as possible.

You should know, I made first my horns with this method: expanding foam -> crepe tape -> snipped paper with wallpaper paste -> papier machee -> gesso -> paint...
So they are somewhat tough for their use. But I feared that my sword will break with that method. So I used the method I described in the tuto.

With the Worbla I can smack it around. XD If you can take better care of your big weapons, use the method mentioned earlier. It's a lot cheaper.

I used one xl sheet and a bit (for the handle) of worbla for this sword.

Yes Gesso is a canvas. Normally put around 10 Layers of it and sand it. If it's still to rough add a few more and sand again.
I really recommand to do this step. I used a cheap spray filler for this sword... And no. I will never use this again. But I couldn't get Gesso here and I didn't want to wait a month for it. I need this sword this month. :/

Derp. I must not have added the comment I'd typed out earlier today. D:

Thanks for the response, it will definitely help me decide which materials to use.

Must ask.. what is used to cut/shape the foam.. tried using it as a liner in some Pepakura Armor once but found myself lacking in any tool that seemed to do anything but make it worse...
