Zelda Goddess Lyre : tutorial part 1 by Narayu Zelda Goddess Lyre : tutorial part 1 by Narayu
Zelda Godess Lyre
Zelda Skyward Sword

Part 2 here : [link]
Part 3 here : [link]


- step 1 = draw and cut the pattern
- step 2 = cut out it in the foam (hard insulation foam)
- step 3 = carve it in the shape of the lyre and sanding it for smooth the foam
- step 4 = cover the lyre with paper mache and paper glue
because the foam only is fragile !

I did two sides lyre, so you can see just one side there !

There, my pattern/template :

When you say cover with paper mache and paper glue, does not mean you add glue to the water/flour mixture? Can you elaborate?

I made my paper mache with old newspaper and wallpaper glue mixed to the water, I dipped small strips of paper in and put on the shape of the lyre.
the white glue is applied after the paper mache layers dried completely.

about 3 to 4 layers, it depends to your paper mache.
