Papercraft Starter Tutorial by Destro2k Papercraft Starter Tutorial by Destro2k
ok, before you do anything, you must know Papercraft is easier as it looks and it's, like all the other art, a learning by doing thing.
As more as you build, as more experience you will get.
But i must also say, sometimes you will stuck, sometimes you will despair and sometimes (hope not) you will fail.

That's why i wanna give you a good start into this great artisan craft art.
By the way, this is only my way to do this.
Try some other technics and you will find your own best way :)

NOT REALLY RULES:
:bulletgreen: have fun during the build
:bulletgreen: if you are not in the mood ore you are stressed, stop it
:bulletgreen: it is just paper, so if you made a mistake, even it hurts, throw the pieces away and build it again
:bulletgreen: make brakes
:bulletgreen: take your time and have patience, quality instead of quantity
:bulletgreen: think before you do something
:bulletgreen: don't be afraid of tiny ore complicated pieces
:bulletgreen: quite every model is different
:bulletgreen: paper is more stable as you may think
:bulletgreen: did i say that the build should make fun :D

special rule for smoker :smoking:
:bulletgreen: put ashtray and cigarettes away from that place where you build ;P

PAPER:
don't worry, no special paper needet, but you should use paper with 80gsm (gramms square meter) and upwards

TOOLS:
i got a few tools, that i use the most time.
That don't mean that you MUST have this tools too.
I repeat, it's only my way.

PROGRAMS:
sometimes you will need a special programm to open the model or rather print the model.
That programm is called "Pepakura Viewer" which you can download here

It's also very helpful when you stuck ore just to view, which part is where.

P.S.
this programm is only to view the models, not to create some.
Not even the Designer can "create" models
it just convert existing 3d meshes into printable sheets.
but that's an other storie :)

but enough of talking, let's start with image one :aww:




the model that i used for this tutorial is "Blaziken" which you can download here

One of the things I do is to spry the cardstock while it is flat with several coats of clear acrylic, I find it frays less when you cut it and your foldlines are crisper, well that and i spray paint most of my models so it waterproofs em ;p

when you spray them first and fold them
didn't crack ore split the color ?

Actually no since the ones I do that to are done in black and white then primed and painted traditionally. Also for those whith color I want to preserve instead of scoring them I will use a ball tip tool to crease them without breaking the surface.
