How to make a vorpal blade part 3

Well while I wait for the blade handle to be well glued before spray painting I decided to move on to the actual blade.

I made the template by getting an image of the real blade and importing it to Photoshop. If you don’t have Photoshop try Pixlr I created a new layer and used the pen tool to trace the outline of the design, I used this new layer as my template.

I used some Prit Stick to glue the paper template to some thin plastic, like the plastic sheets you put paper in.

I then cut out the design using a sharp knife.

I will stick this plastic template onto the blade and use silver spray paint to create an etched look (hopefully).
