Nice Guide

I had thought of just taking leaves from my garden and paint them XD
benihme-chan's avatar
they would die and the spraypaint would kill them, yeah that would be a bad idea :(

*turn out*

Sorry, my bad!
KatastropheBolt's avatar
I AM REALLY LATE! BUT, did your trident turn it really good in the end? :lol:
benihme-chan's avatar
hmm~ i've got some things i need to improve on, but overall it looked good! i'll post pictures later
KatastropheBolt's avatar
HOORAY! Okay, that would really be helpful. :)
I'm trying to make his trident, and I'm following your tutorial.
If there is anything you can change about it. What is it?
benihme-chan's avatar
when i was putting the wood glue on the spikes, i put it on too thick in some places and there were lumps. but that's really about it
KatastropheBolt's avatar
Hm, I see. Can I use gorilla glue?
Or do I use Wood glue? Hot glue?
benihme-chan's avatar
i don't think gorilla glue will work. i use the wood glue because it makes the object harder. my spikes are really hard because i did around 10 coats i believe. but i was careless and didn't make sure it was all evenly coated. i probably could have added a bit more water to it as well
KatastropheBolt's avatar
Hm, I see. Then I guess wood glue will do. Is there anything I should know about this tutorial at all? Something different?
benihme-chan's avatar
no. i made my trident by doing it the way that i posted it

Are the leaves sturdy? I want to make the trident for my next cosplay, but I will need to transport it to the convention via plane. Will this survive being in a suitcase?
benihme-chan's avatar
as long as you coat them several times in the mixture of glue/water or whatever it is, yes they won't tear or anything. mine were incredibly sturdy. infact the whole thing didn't break off and i knocked it over quite a few times
