And "Lion Board(Koyo Soft Board)" is sold only in Japan.

Then, if you live in except japan, you must use other materials.

It's called EVA foam, EVAzote, too.
Many world cosplayers are using EVA board.
(I don't know well about EVA board, sorry. Plase study by Google)
Or, basicly soft and can bended board is substitutes.
Then find the materials in your country.

*******************************************************
At first, use sharp blade. For example, "Pro Blade".
This is so sharp.
In addition, use big size Box cutter.
Big size can cut well more than small size.
←10枚入り ←50枚入りお得パック

When you cut, put "Lion Board(Koyo Soft Board)" on Cutting mat.
Don't cut in the air, while holding by hand.
Break a b blade frequentry, if you feel sharpness of using blade became bad.
If you want to do work more speedy, use "Running fire box cutter","Blade breaker".
"Running fire box cutter" can have 6 pieces blade inside.
"Blade breaker" can break easy and speedy.


Use Craft Knife, if you cut small ornaments etc Craft Knife can't cut well.

*******************************************************************************************

Use Instant gule Accelerator to make good progress.
-Instant glue-Small spray-Big spray

Paste together with Instant glue.
Use Instant gule Accelerator to make good progress.
Make border with Hot melt(glue gun).


*********************************************
Instant glue can plane surface easy.
But it can't narrow surface well.
Then you should use bellow spray.
I always use this.
Watch movie.

For example, use bellow surface.


Instant gule Accelerator
This can stick surface in several seconds.
100ml can stick one armorset or about three weapons..
←100ml ←180ml ←420ml

About instant glue
General liquid Instant glue is OK.


Case of sticking except instant glue.
"Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) can stick too. It's can stick narrow surface too.
But it's take time more than Instant glue and Instant gule Accelerator.
And "Bond G17"(one of liqud glue in Japan) may melt stuck surface if you use "Bond G17" painting.
(You should reinfore stuck surface with Instant glue. Or use Gesso painting.)
After all Instant glue and Instant gule Accelerator is the best.
