I LOVE THIS THING!!! :iconyayzplz:

I've been working on this slowly over the past few weeks----beginning the day I finished my template and posted it here on DA. :phew:

If you're curious about the details I added, take a look here for the little tour. In short----originally, the small details were faked, present only in the flat texture of the 3D model, so I gave them tangible dimension.

Just for the heck of it, I'll film the resining process tomorrow, and the foam injection process sometime in the days following.... EDIT: I've decided to finish building some more new papercrarfts first. I shan't say what they are 'cause the expectation just puts way too much pressure on me. ^^;

Hey I was wondering what exactly is the foam injection process? I cant find anything about it n.n :)
EuTytoAlba Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2014
I tend to invent processes as I go, so I'm not really surprised. ^^;

I recorded myself injecting Ends of the Earth here, but it came out pretty rough. So, the video tutorial I've been promising forever will have to feature the next keyblade I inject, Starlight.

In short, it's where one takes a papercraft and very carefully injects it with polyurethane spray-foam. (Which squirts out of the can having a consistency like hot marshmallows.) The problem I ran into is that the foam keeps expanding for 12-24 hours while it hardens, and must be "stabbed" with a long razor blade for gas pockets every 20 minutes, or else it could "explode" the papercraft in extreme slow-motion. ....Other than that, I think it's self-explanatory. The can comes with a long straw that attaches to its nozzle, so you just stick that in the papercraft like acupuncture. :shrug:

whoaaaaaaa~ what kind of paper/cardboard material did you use to make this?
EuTytoAlba Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013
Usually just whatever is available. In this case, 110lb weight cardstock. (plus all those cardboard tp rolls for internal support)

Red ranger <--- can you make this into a PDF. or have a link to make PDO into PDF.
EuTytoAlba Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013
Sorry for not replying sooner....

I use CutePDF to convert things to PDF. It's a freeware that installs like a printer / to use it, you install it then go to: File > Print > select printer name "CutePDF Writer" > Ok, then it will prompt you for a file name and folder to save it in.

I was wondering if i could get a model made for Pepakura Designer so i can scale it for my son who plays Kingdom Hearts for his birthday
EuTytoAlba Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2013
This is one that I prefer to keep locked. How big do you want the finished keyblade?
