This is my Custom 3D signs project 100% in cardboard. It can be made whit a very little budget and a few days of work!
The size of the model can be modify to attend your demand too
Step 1: #1 Materials.
- A4 paper
-Glues: Hot, White, Contact
Step 2: #2 Preparing the Model.
I got this free images in the web.
Whit Adobe Photoshop I made some particular changes.
Whit Illustrator we can print the image in a tile range, scaling the model to your own need.
After print, just build up the model!
Whit the model in your hands, just move the form to a cardboard base.
To make the 3d effect, just build two layers of the model in cardboard.
You can cut out the lettlers from the model too.
Step 3: #3 Building It.
It's time to paint!
Because of the color and the absorption of the cardboard it's necessary to paint the cube with a white cover.
After two layers...
Paint with you favorite colours!
To glow in dark light, I used some neon paint
Varnish its a great idea too!
Step 4: #4 Finishing.
In the second example I put some christmas lights around the border.
Hope you enjoy! =)
