Is this papercraft hard to make?
It is easy. Do not worry! It is simple paper folding and glueing. No hard complex origami. It is quite a simple handmade project. Paragami 3D wall art consists of many single blocks/pyramids. You will be assembling each block one by one. It is nothing to be scared of. It just might be time-consuming as some of the designs consist of hundreds of pieces…
What paper weight should I use?
Any kind of…it is better to make samples and try the different weights. Find out the best fit for you. It also depends if you are cutting it out with scissors, or if you use a machine. We recommend using colour paper 120g - 240g. The lighter paper is easy to cut and fold, however, the tougher paper the stiffer the final geometric art.
What colour paper should I use?
All of them. Parametric design created visually attractive patterns, get the best out of it! Hard folds of the paper create an astonishing 3D effect when floodlighted. Explore the effect of light and shade, contrast, and repetitive patterns. Find a perfect colour range for your interior home decoration and experience true 3D wallpaper.
Which glue should I use?
We use regular paper stick glue, which you can get in any paper shop. However, hot glue guns have good results as well. it is fast hardening and quite firm. In any case, always keep your hand clean as it is very easy to make the paper dirty. We recommend using latex gloves.
How to cut it out?
You can print it (PDF) and cut it out manually with SCISSORS/SCALPEL.
Or you can use the vector data (DXF) and cut it mechanically with a PLOTTER (Cameo Silhouette, Cricut)
