Kylo Ren Lightsaber Hot Glue Effect

Hot glue is the cosplay cure-all. We recently shared how one maker used hot glue to give Elsa’s shoes from Frozen an icy sheen, and today we’re looking at how another cosplayer is using the material to create a fiery look for Kylo Ren’s lightsaber from The Force Awakens. We’re going from ice to fire.

Elendriel used hot glue to turn a clear Kylo Ren lightsaber blade into a red blade that looks like it’s glowing. It has more of a flaming element than Ren’s lightsaber in the film, and I like the difference. It suits Ren’s wild temperament more. Elendriel says:

The basics: saran wrap, hot glue, and glass paint! (and some acrylics for the hilt)
The method: Crinkling the saran wrap helps take away from the smoothness of the blade, then adding layers of hot glue in thin and thicker strips in various patterns, then finishing it off with a couple colors of glass paint to give it that ‘living flame’ color smile emoticon Then of course paints for the hilt itself to help give it that rusted/older look.
