I am an artist and as part of my installation for the day of the dead , I decided to make a Huge Kite with paper, pvc strings , glue and lots of Good ideas.
My kite is 10 feet Height and 10 feet width
Step 1: Materials
glue ( art paste works better)
containers ( better if it recycle )
Step 2: Lets get Hands on.
so I clue rolls of papers , cut the paper at least 1 feet extra of what you need
let it dry
Step 3: Make the Frame
I use PVC tubes , any hardware store has them , I got the .5 inch total of 4 units of 10 feet long
and I also bought 2 'T" ( see pictures)
I cut them in half each tube.
put them together and make a "X"
then place the 2 "x" over the paper so you can cut the shape . Leave at least 6 inches from the end of the pvc
Step 4: Ok lets go on
once you cut the shape of the Kite I staple the paper to the wall, If you have large floor are, you can just work on the floor , ( I use the wall because my wife complain about the rugs)
Step 5: Paper / color time
You can use any color , is best if you add 2 sheets of papers at once.
first add glue then place the paper over the glued area.
Step 6: Next / add more Paper
is time to add your designs,
at this point is up to you taste, how you want to design your kite
I like Geometrical shapes , so I cut a whole bunch of triangles of direfferent colors
let the glue dry then keep adding your designs
