Tutorial: How to do a keyblade (Oblivion) by chibinis-chan Tutorial: How to do a keyblade (Oblivion) by chibinis-chan
Uh, it took me quite some time to finally do this, right? I was asked to do a tut for my keyblades for quite some time, but never really got to do it. I didn't take many photo when I was doing my keyblades, but I hope it will help you anyways.
Please remember, English isn't my native language and I don't know the technical terms and had to use a dictionary for them, so please tell me if I mistranslated anything >.<
Thank you <3

Next time, I'll do a bracelet that works like the one's almost all the Magi characters wear.

Thanks for reading and looking <3

Ah so I actually wanted to know if you ever used air dry clay over expanding foam? I was thinking about using expanding foam, carve it out, put paper mache(maybe) and just cover it with air dry clay for a smoother surface o-o

I never did, sorry. I only used it on wood and paper mache, which worked fine for me ^^

I'm going as Roxas for a convention next year, and I need to make Oathkeeper and Oblivion, otherwise I pay $400 each. And I'm not paying that xP So I have to ask, how did you make your Oathkeeper? Same as process as Oblivion?
Honestly your keyblades are beautiful!

Thank you very much ^.^ I am glad you like them.
Basically I used the same process for Oathkeeper. Of course you can skip the part where I added the chain and you have to be careful about where to add clay and where not to get the layers nicely, but that's it ^^
woodbase - sanding - modelling clay- more sanding - primer - color - varnish
For the keychain I simply plaided white ribbon, painted it and connected it with wire to the keyblade and the paopu once it was dry ^^

Hey! What kind of modeling clay did you used? I really want a keyblade for myself :D

Any kind of air drying modeling clay should work. I used efaplast light, but I dunno if you can get it where you live.

Oops, I meant to ask how thick the wood was, that would be helpful.

oh, I don't remember and I don't have the keyblade with me. Either 0,8 cm or 1cm. But I guess it all depends on personal preference and how durable your wood is.

Haha my friends would kill me for wanting to cosplay a kingdom hearts character, but I think having a keyblade would be cool.

Fantastic tutorial, thanks for sharing the info. I wouldn't have thought you could trust the modelling clay to grip to the wooden base, so that's good to know it does! I look forward to having a go at something along these lines in the future. :D

chibinis-chan Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
I can't, sorry. I didn't take pictures when making it, so this tutorial is all I can offer. it works the same way. Get a woodbase (either do it yourself of have it done by someone else), than apply modelling clay, sanding and coloring. It's more or less the same ^^

looks really cool and I would give that a go but I would rather give modeling in MMD when I figure out how to. If I could do that in real life I would love it.

It's not difficult if you have someone who helps you with the wood base ^^ It's just very time consuming ^^'' I can't do a 3D model even if I would.

You make me blush~
It's too expensive for me to buy all the props I need, so I try doing as much as possible by myseld ^^ *Arulithia often helps me out if I don't know how to do it ^^

:D yeah.... I know, We charge too much sometimes, well... in my case is cuz I use a professional painting system, so... the paints, primers and clears are in other price range. and yes, I follow her as well, you two are amazing! keep up the good work, I am more intrigued now that I know you make props :3

:iconchibinis-chan:
chibinis-chan Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Actually I don't think it's too much. If you want something look good (and your props look VERY good), you have to pay for it. I once did wig commissions myself and I know how much work it is and all that stuff, therefore I can understand why props are that expensive. I always try to get my stuff done myself, because I am able to do it so that I am satisfied with it ^^ It's not perfect, but it's okay ^^
At the moment I am a little scared. Arulithia and I plan on doing Gold Saints from Saint Seiya and I never did armor before... XD Wish me luck ^^

Really? I never would have thought that!
Actually I only know the Lost Canvas anime, because I didn't like the drawings of the old series ^^'''
Arulithia wants to do Pisces Albafica and Sagittarius Sisyphos. I want to do Aries Shion. He's Just to awesome. I also had to watch the hades OVA chapters where Shion appeared just because of him XD
Sadly, I don't know when we'll be able to do that. I am looking forward to seeing your Hades~

:OOOOO you dont like kurumada's work?! *slaps hand* bad girl! XD
:3 yeah... Shion has a lot of history in the series! he and dohko the coolest ones there!
and i know what you mean, too much to do, too many plans... and no time... first i need to finish berserker from fate, :/ before march.... mission impossible, at least i have to try. and me too!!! I love your work, always waiting for the next update! kudos on the fan page on FB! i was wondering when you were going to open one ;)

Looking forward to what you'll be doing~

It's so great to see this. Once I get the time, I think I wanna make a keyblade, and it's wonderful to have something to use as a reference to make it a bit easier...
Thank you... ^^
