hey anon,

going to a party in a few weeks with a "Burtonesque" (Tim Burton) theme. I want to wear a nice low-poly papercraft mask. Any suggestions?

Found these from Google:

My bad this is a different shape sorry /po/ps
sonobe tetrahedron

classic origami waterbomb
>sonobe tetrahedron
This model is "Stellated Octahedron" by Sam Ciulla. They are made from a single sheet of paper, not sonobe units. The geometric shape is however the same as a sonobe octahedron (not tetrahedron)

My 300-piece Sonobe ball sagged into a pancake after a year. My PHiZZ tori have been doing alright, but I'm worried that anything larger than 84 units will collapse as well. Already done golden venture.

I need units that will hold together forever. Got any suggestions?
Nothing lasts forever.

But at least you could try extending the time your ball looks fine by sparyning some clear coat over it. Matte or bright. Besides protecting the paper, it will act as glue lightly bonding the pieces

Or spray the clear coat on the inside just before closing it.

You can also try filling it with some shredded newspaper or toilet paper to help it keep the shape.

If you're a purist and don't wish to add clear paint or anything else, then just accept the fact that things are ephemeral in the universe.

Fuck my fingers. It's "spraying" not "sparyning". Sorry for the typo.
I'm beating myself up for not thinking of the toilet paper idea. And matte should be fine since it's just to make it last longer. Thank you so much!

Sup /po/, I want to get a paper cutter that I can use to cut out stencils using vector graphics on my computer. I want to use thick enough cardstock that I can use it for stencils with spraypaint. Anyone have experience with this?

Now I just need a party to run it through
nice one
i hope this thread will stay, it's still in Birthday mode
That's amazing, but honestly I think paper terrain and creating a dungeon layout is better in the sense that it gives you flexibility and creating a new dungeon will require a lot of homework. Most importantly what if the hero's just decide to ignore the dungeon all together?
It is already sectional, get enough dungeon sections and you can reuse pieces and wait to add rooms until the PCs reach that section.
What materials aside from paper did you use because that is epic as hell.

Airplanes are probably the best introduction, since you can fly it when you finish and the folds are simple while teaching you to read diagrams.

Then try learning inside reverse fold, outside reverse fold, crimp, pleating, and fold the bases here: http://www.origami-instructions.com/origami-base-folds.html

Can someone help me out with a template for this Beatles Yellow Submarine 3D Pop up card? Also, templates and instructions for this particular kind of 3D pop up are practically absent on the internets, so other links are appreciated too.

Check link for a more detailed view of the card.


Thanks in advance!

Hi Anon, i don't know where to get the template for exactly this card, but i found on Pinterest a collection of similar cards.


Have fun.
The homepage of style3dcard is online again, if someone wants the templates in better quality:


The templates can be found in the "Pattern Kirigami" section.
That's right
not there. could you provide a direct link? all 4 pages show the same thing.
Damn it. Seems like the page is broken. Unfortunately I dont have any direct link

Hello /po/, my name is Michael and my daughter is coming home from an operation in 2 days time (Woot!!)

She's only 5 and I want to do like an ice bucket thing, but with wee little oragami thingies instead or ice (obviously)

Can anyone point me in the direction of something easy to mass produce that looks cute that I can smash out a bucket(ish) load in a few days?

Mid quality a4 printer paper is in unlimited mode

Whilst unhelpful I did find it humorous.

I am also not a Nazi.
Here you go : >>546816

But actually any easy traditional origami would work, like cranes or lilys.
Origami cranes (you can find a tutorial absolutely anywhere) or lucky stars (a bit tricky the first few times but really cute)
Thanks. Cranes look great. Rabbits seem easy too.
Thank you neighbour ^_^
Very much appreciated

>put posters and nice things on the walls
>live in a wet and cold place
>also gets hot when the heaters are on
>every 2 weeks all the posters fall down
>blu tack either looks solid and not squishy anymore
>put them up again
>fall down in a few weeks again

Is there anything better than this without damaging the walls?
I thought you guys will know the pro tips on the matter..

just get borderless picture frames
dosnt make mess and you can swap them with no problem
How do you fix those on the wall
>without damaging the walls?
i know you said you don't want to damage your walls but if the humidity is that bad your art is going to be damaged anyways. Get some cheap, light frames and hang them properly. when your leaving get some drywall patch and fix the holes. it's cheap, easy and as permanent as you need it to be.
Seconding the cleaning the surface. Then layer masking or painter tape on the areas that you'll be using adhesive to stick the poster. The padded mounting tape works best for me. We do this for tradefair booths where we're not allowed to mark the partition walls. Hope this helps.
frame and hang like a civilized people.
>maybe there is a way to cover the small holes.
if you cant manage to adult using frames to hang posters, use toothpaste to fill any and all small holes before moving.
