Nice Guide

I had thought of just taking leaves from my garden and paint them XD

benihme-chan Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2009
they would die and the spraypaint would kill them, yeah that would be a bad idea :(

HOORAY! Okay, that would really be helpful. :)
I'm trying to make his trident, and I'm following your tutorial.
If there is anything you can change about it. What is it?

when i was putting the wood glue on the spikes, i put it on too thick in some places and there were lumps. but that's really about it

Hm, I see. Can I use gorilla glue?
Or do I use Wood glue? Hot glue?
Reply
:iconbenihme-chan:
benihme-chan Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2009
i don't think gorilla glue will work. i use the wood glue because it makes the object harder. my spikes are really hard because i did around 10 coats i believe. but i was careless and didn't make sure it was all evenly coated. i probably could have added a bit more water to it as well

Hm, I see. Then I guess wood glue will do. Is there anything I should know about this tutorial at all? Something different?

Are the leaves sturdy? I want to make the trident for my next cosplay, but I will need to transport it to the convention via plane. Will this survive being in a suitcase?

as long as you coat them several times in the mixture of glue/water or whatever it is, yes they won't tear or anything. mine were incredibly sturdy. infact the whole thing didn't break off and i knocked it over quite a few times

where did you get the crafting foam from and is it just like (bad way of explaining) the foam kids use to make love hearts and stuff out of and does it break easily ^_^; thanks alot for teh tutorial ^^

:iconbenihme-chan:
benihme-chan Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2009

OMG i love you for making this I had no idea where to start in making it for my Chrome cosplay. what's a dowel rod though?
Reply
:iconbenihme-chan:
benihme-chan Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2009
dowel rod is just a stick thats made out of wood. i got mine at walmart but you can get them at most craft stores and stores like home depot and lowes

I'm a total noob at this so I have no idea where to get a PVC pipe. Does it have to be PVC?(whatever that means)
Reply
:iconbenihme-chan:
benihme-chan Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2009
well you can use wood but you need better tools to cut it.

PVC pipe is plastic pipe that's used for drains i think? i got mine at home depot. just go there and ask them to show you where it is

I asked while looking at the Tut but my mom said that it's like a plastic pipe. I might not be correct but ya. they might sell pvc at home hardware or a store like that.

Very helpful! How long did it take for you to make this? And uh, what is that stuff you made the leaves out of? I can't tell... .__.''
Reply
:iconbenihme-chan:
benihme-chan Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2009
well i'm still making this. i couldn't really tell you because i stripped the middle section down and i worked about 2-3 days a week on it slowly.

as said in the tutorial, leaves are made out of craft foam ^_^
