During lockdown I wasn’t able to continue painting or building works due to legal restrictions. So I worked on this idea I have wanted to execute for sometime.
A Paper Craft Model of 'The Sun Room' from my EMPIRE Exhibition.
This is a DIY product.
This is not a simple click together, it will take a few hours to put together well.
You can add you own extra details to this model to customise it.
you will need:
-glue or double sided tape.
-tweezers & pin for finer areas
-sharp blade (most is already cut and creased, but you will need to trim the final box)
-black tape (to join final edges of surrounding box)
Final size: 28 cm x 18cm x 23cm
(about the size of a shoe box)
looks great on a book shelf.
More tips here:
We recommend to start with the largest items first.
Use the numbers as a guide of where tabs should go (eg: 104 connects to 104 )
Double sided tape or a hot glue gun works well to keep the tabs in place.
Use a ruler to crease folds for a cleaner edge.
Tweezers and a pin can help you with the finer tabs.
Bond the walls to the heaver card supplied for a stronger finish.
The lid and base of the box can be trimmed to proved strength to the ceiling and floor.
Finish the box edges with a black fabric tape.
Continue to customise your model beyond what is in the box.
Use a dirty paint brush to add texture, add ash as dust, add small led lights.
