I get a lot of questions about how I add simple LEDs into my props and gadgets. Majority of people haven't used a soldering iron, and aren't sure about the investment to purchase one. No worries! You can use some copper tape and Bare Conductive's Electric Paint to light up a few 5mm LEDs, and no soldering required!
Step 1: Electric Paint Light-up Cosplay Sword
I downloaded one of Punished Props awesome free blueprint designs, the Xenoblade – Monnado Sword and modified the file in Adobe Illustrator to add holes for LEDs and a cover for a coin cell battery.
I added 5 holes for 5mm LEDS and engraved paths for the copper tape, electric paint, and coin battery.
