The base of the gun is made from various sizes of PVC pipes all cut up and placed within one another. The white casings were carved from foam and coated with paper mache clay, then carved to the desired shape. Prongs are made from wood...other miscellaneous parts came from the hardware store or around my house lol. I used a lot of liquid nails, hot glue and wood glue to put it all together. Quite a complicated process.
