Could you teach me how to make that Adventure Time paper craft? It's amazing. o____o
Hellooo! Glad you like that little piece! Well…
1. Plan. Grab a piece of paper, draw a square, draw a circle in that square. Next, draw the characters you want, and position them so that they can all be seen. Neaten it up so you know who goes in front of who and so forth. Now you know who you’re going to make, and how many layers you’ll need. I did an extra process where I made paper base layers, to make sure they slot together correctly.
2. Start making the characters BASED ON LAYERS. Back layers first, front layers last. If you have floating characters (like my Marcy and LSP and Gunter), then you can do those anytime. For simplicity, you’ll need tracing paper, so your characters will be the accurate size. (I did it freehanded, which can work out, but it’s trickier as you have to keep seeing that everything will fit together right.) I drew my characters on paper for a base, then laid sticker paper on top. I did it in a way that would be easiest; for instance, doing the whole body, then the clothes on top. This way you won’t need to worry about lengths of arms and legs etc, because there’s enough skin (as you’ve made pretty much a naked body as your base). You can use normal paper, but be neat with glue!
3. Remember I said back layers first? You also have to keep layering them on top of each other as you go along, just so you know they’re in the right position.
My process, as I understand these might’ve been a bit tricky to follow:
1 - I planned and made paper bases
2 - My background was a blue sky with clouds; I stuck blue sticker paper down on a square paper base. I didn’t stick the clouds down.
3 - The next layer was the Ice King; I made him next but didn’t stick him down!
4 - The next layer was Peebles and Lady Rainicorn. I made them, and made sure they fit with the Ice King.
5 - As each layer is backed up by corrugated cardboard, I made 4 corners and stuck them on the sky background. I also stuck down Lady with Peebles down, and a square with a circle cut out of it on top of that. (It should be mentioned I stuck a sheet of green paper grass down in the inner circle, and the Ice King behind that.) I poked Peebles out through the circle so it looked like they were flying through.
6 - I made Marcy, Finn and Jake, LSP, Gunter and the bee. These were easiest as they were the outside layers. Once done, I positioned them.
7 - I did the clouds (cotton wool) and stuck them down before the characters in step 6.
Hooope that makes sense! I’m going to copy-paste all these instructions into my WIP folder on facebook! If that WIP link doesn’t work, go to my Photo Albums and look for the one entitled “AT Papercraft”. So head there for a visual guide!
