Final Fantasy Type Zero: Machina's Bolt Rapiers

Good Day guys, here is another tuts from the Bolt Rapiers I just made. Took me longer than anticipated probably because I tend to forget that there are 2 swords. Thanks to this rapier I learned how to plait and hope you guys could too and apply it to the many other props you would be making ;)

Stay Awesome :ahoy:

Finished Product:

Currently working on:
- Aqua Boots Tutorial, since many asked for it. Will be my next upload :)
- Fire Emblem's Falchion, crazy details this sword

I got missguided with your reference pic, is says that diameter of cogs are 180cm, 120cm, and 152cm. I gont get it sorry~!
I mean is these numbers in milimeters or decimeters?? (you know mm and dm)
That would be my question.

Thank you.

Ah, these values should be millimeters, my bad.

How did you make the tutorial? The color scheme makes it look like there's one on DA. Or did you use another one? (I need a new photoshop.. thing... to make tutorials and I'm looking for a good free[ideally] one)
23rdAngel's avatar
I based by color scheme on DA's. Their neutral greens are so relaxing and doesn't compete for attention with the photos :)
I use photoshop for my tuts and other graphic works. Though you can use an online editor like this:
Its free and works just like photoshop :thumbsup:

Hmm, its a little hard to explain in words.. What I can do is give you a video sample on how it was done. Although he used 8 Plait, it still uses the same process with 4 plait :)
Here is a youtube link:…
