Are they friends or enemies? You decide! Make your own vintage paper robots with our printable PDF templates! It’s easy! Just follow the instructions & you will be proud of your two robots. Aren’t they perfect to decorate your bedroom or even a gift for a sci-fi lover?
Don’t be afraid, I assembled the two robots myself, so everybody can do it! You will just need time & precision. Put your music on & enjoy the assemblage! (For me it is a perfect way to relax).
«««««« HOW DOES IT WORK? »»»»»»
► Once purchased, download the ZIP file with the patterns (PDF files to be printed with A4 or A3 sheets – Letter or Tabloid in the States) & the complete instructions in English to make the sculptures.
► Print the templates (choose the sheet format which is more convenient for you, the size of the sculptures is the same with A3 or A4 paper). The paper must be thick (200 / 300 GSM / grams per square meters). The one I use is 270 GSM & it is perfect for that kind of sculpture. You can print at home if you have a printer or, easier, go to the nearest Print shop, you could buy the paper & print there.
► You have the printed pattern! Now just check you have the following tools: a pair of scissors, a ruler, white paper glue and a tool to fold the paper (could be a scoring tool / cutter pencil or even a small knife). You are ready to begin!
► Now just follow the instructions: cut the parts, fold & glue them. It is easy, all the parts of the patterns are identified with edge number guide for easy assembly (to assemble the papercraft model just match the numbers on the edges with the corresponding number & glue the edges together).
► Once finished, you can customize the sculptures according to your taste. The customization options are infinite! You can color each face with felt-tip pens to make them multi-colors (I did it for several models). Or, you can paint them to make them stronger & easier to be cleaned. With an oil paint or even spray paint, the robots will look like laminated & your friends won’t believe you made them with paper!
