After you have the sword shaped and stacked the way you want it, it’s time to mache. When stacking, black panther costumes you want to be as exact as possible. To give the sword mass, you simply hot glue the pieces together in a stack. After ours was cut out, we traced and cut out 5 more full sword shapes to layer. We did silver paint for the outside and edge, since it is a sword after all, movie character costumes and then used acrylic paint to do some detailing.
