I am in the mood to begin making some props for the first time and I want to start with some simple video game props to give to my friend. So, since she likes Legend of Zelda, I want to make some iconic items from the game: The bomb from Wind Waker, the Bottle with a fairy inside, some rupees and possibly a heart. But I need help on what would be the logical process in making, so if you don't mind helping me out with any tricks, tricks, or criticizisms about this...
First comes the Bomb
So far I am thinking of buying the 4in. version of the Styrofoam ball:
Then for the top, one of these styrofoam cones and cut the till I get the proper shape:
I am thinking of covering the entire thing in crayola blue modeling clay:
Lastly comes the sanding and painting, with a bit of rope as the fuse on top
....so what do you guys think?
