Acrylic Box Tutorial (1)

In order to make your finished paper model secure from any harm, I recommend you to make Acrylic Box. In order to do that I will give you step by step tutorial beginning with the material and tools that we used to make the box.

1. Acrylic
This material available at your nearest household stores. My recommendation if your paper model height is less than 20 CM used 2 mm thickness. There are many thickness for Acrylic. As long as I know you must used 3 MM thickness or more if your paper model height is more than 20 CM. WHY ?? Because if you used 2 MM thickness for your 20cm or more papermodel in height, the box can not stand it's own height.

2. Plastic Scribber
Buy this tools also at your nearest household store or hobby kit. There are many range of price for plastic scribber, my suggestion buy the cheapest one if you occasionally make the box. But if you want to make the box more often, buy the best one and also comes with the highest price.

3.Acrylic Glue
This glue is special because it will make the acrylic stick together. My suggestion is to search for the store that sell this glue in one package along with acrylic so you don't have to worry to search it elsewhere. But if you want to buy it, you can also go to your nearest chemical store.

4.Cotton Bud
Used this to apply Acrylic Glue, because this glue is a danger chemical liquid.

5. Pen and Iron Ruler
Used the pen and Iron ruler to measure your paper model height,width and length in order to achieve the box measurement. Also used iron ruler along with plastic scribber when you cut the acrylic . Remember used only Iron Ruler, plastic ruler will cause damage to your ruler and may take harm to your finger while doing it.

Paper Model from IndoComtech 2009 (1)

Above picture was my latest paper model from Salazad Papertoy line. This character was one of the Punakawan who serves righteous knight in Sundanese Wayang. His name was DAWALA. The original size for this papertoy comes in A4. But for IndoComtech I made something special, the right model shows you A5 version (PeRI staff used it for booth display). As a gift for the designer who already came all the way to Jakarta fromBandung I choose A6 version (the left model). Its very challenging and for your information this model came by a simple human mistake. I printed the pattern on Digital Print as my regular place to go when I want to make paper model. But the officer in there mistakenly print the pattern in A6 version, after I look it for a while I said to myself " hmm I can do this" and the morning before I went to IndoComtech 2009 for the last time on Sunday 8th November 2009 I made this model. It only took about 30 minutes to complete it. So thanks for Salazad who already took the picture above and I hope he will make more very interesting paper toy. HATUR NUHUN PISAN.
