Devil May Cry Guns : Ebony and Ivory- Pink foam and Wonderflex

This is a commission I received for some cosplay props.   They are the guns named Ebony and Ivory from Devil May Cry

I was provided with the actual Mesh file of the guns, but I ended up just making a profile in Inkscape so that I could cut them out of pink foam.

The cutter chopped off a bit of the end of one of them, so I had to add a little on.

At this point, I tried several different types of foam covering, all of which did not work to my liking.  Due to the number of restarts I had to do, I failed to continue taking pictures.

I eventually ended up deciding to use Wonderflex, which is a thermoforming plastic that self adheres when hot.

These are what the finished product looked like.  The commissioner wanted to paint them himself.  Had I been paid more, I would have added relief details with the wonderflex to create the flowery detailing on the guns.

 

I will be working more with wonderflex in some upcoming posts so stay tuned!

Upcoming projects include:

Pedal Car Restoration

Borderlands 2 Infinity Gun

Duct Tape Slave I

Nerf gun motor replacements
