How to make a Millenium Ring by akaneshrio How to make a Millenium Ring by akaneshrio
Wow... I finished it only a day after I took the photos.
It's not the greatest tutorial, but it's good with the pictures.
Also, all the stuff I used you can find around the house or at your local Wal-Mart. Even my very poorly stocked Wal-mart had all the stuff I needed.
Maybe I'll make another part for it, or maybe I won't. After all of this, you just need to put the pointers on and spray-paint it, then your ready to go.
... Hope it helps someone, even in the slightest bit...

Wow this is great, this will help a lot and just a question do you think air dry clay would work okay with this method?
akaneshrio Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Yes, a good air dry clay would work great!

This will be really helpful! Thank you! but how should I attach the pointers?
akaneshrio Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Probably with a bit of craft wire, though make it a bit lose, almost like string so that they move when you walk or move it.

Or you could bed the wires to make the pointers actually point as well. ^^

Gold or yellow thread could also work, but it is much more tricky and very fragile. If a pointer got caoug on something it would snap the thread.

Good luck!

Hi there! I've been wanting to make a Millennium Ring for my own cozplay/ casual ware for quite some time now and Im finally starting to do research on how it can be done. This chart looks like its going to be a great help, and your ring looks absolutely brilliant! I do have one question tho. What is the Tin Foil used for? Is it just so that its hallow and lighter? Will it burn out once you bake the clay? Do you think you could use News paper instead, or even not use anything on the inside at all? I've never really taken a project like this under my belt before so any tips you could give would be a great help!!!

The tin foil is used to give the clay some structure so it will be a bit sturdier and less likely to crack and break. Tin foil is used in baking a lot and if covered completely should be fine. The tin foil will stay inside the ring to keep it strong.
I don't recommend paper. This provides no structure, is difficult to work with and may catch fire.
Mostly, a tip I have is to use light weight clay, as this will allow for more comfortable wear, and something comfortable yet strong to wear around your neck:
I also don't recommend wearing it everyday, as it can be broken easily. However, this is good project to work on for cosplay and is much simplier that others. The more complex ones that are usually made of wood however are more durable. I've never attempted any of those so I can't supply any information on them. I know that they are a bit higher in difficulty and would require the use of powertools as a possibility.

I bought alot of clay so i kind of got to experiment around with a few different things. I took your advice with the not using paper tho, Dont want to set my house on fire hahaha. The base that looked the best was the one that was just made from clay. Its somewhere between 1/4 of and inch and 1/2 of an inch thick, so I dont think it'll crack.... I tried to make the little dangly bits out of dowel rods that I took an exacto knife to and some sandpaper and they were alot lighter than the clay ones and they look just as nice. Thank you for all of your help! I really appreciate it

This tutorial really helped me when I began constructing my millennium ring. Thanks a bunch =D here is the link if you want to see it [link]

This is a good start to make a millennium ring how ever the problem of it is that its clay the possibility of it actually falling and breaking are high and secondly the hardest part of the item would be the eye getting that just perfect is not an easy task and of course the spray paint if you want it to look like real gold or something that doesn't look cheap i suggest to get the good spray paint it will probably hold together much more better and it would look better also dont be cheap on this one if you want it to look good

how long do you bake it? im dead serious XD
ParadoxicalHikari Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2009
Oh my goodness.
Thank you SO MUCH. I was looking for an easy-to-make, cheap Millennium Ring guide when I found yours. I'm trying to finish my Bakura cosplay in time for a Tea Ceremony and Japanese Market/Bookstore trip I'm going on at my college this Saturday, and this is probably the best I can do by then.
... Yeah, I'm going to cosplay in a Tea Ceremony. But the Ring and wig'll be put away during the Ceremony, just in case my professor gets angry.
akaneshrio Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2009  Student Digital Artist
Well I'm glad you like it. I thought that no one really would because I've never seen a tutorial on how to make millenium items.
I hope the tea ceremony goes well! :D
