Since I have been very busy at work, most of my projects were postponed and delayed - even got my facebook account deactivated in the process. But during these times I have still managed to acquire a new hobby. Its called papercrafting, what got me into the hobby well a friend of mine asked me to make one for him since he thinks i am capable of accomplishing such task! Since I am up for the challenge I accepted the job - first ever.
He ordered 3 chibi papercraft gundams and gave me the download links. I immediately did some research and since iv been doing cubeecraft in the past I am already familiar with the craft.
|Cubee craft - My SD Unicorn and SD Sinanju|
1. a pattern of the design you want to build,
2. special type of paper (120GSM, white)
3. a good printer (gloss finish or matte)
5. hobby knife
6. and quick drying glue (Quick drying)
7. tweezers (optional but very helpful)
|120 GSM A4 paper (current)|
|glue (quick dry) and scissors|
|tweezers - ooohhhh shiny!|
My first project was a chibi or SD (super deformed) red zaku, but unfortunately i had issues with the print out and later realized that there are paper and ink (printer) compatibility issues. I used a cardboard type of paper and wax coated printout. The print chipped off from the paper when folded or scratched.
|not bad for a first timer|
|I think the scale is somewhere between 1/40 or 1/50|
|The sinanju really looks badass even on paper!|
Here are some links that can help you start with this craft.
