Picture of Out Of This Wall – Papercraft Sculpture
I can’t believe I have won the craft contest! Thanks to every one who has voted for this project and the judges!

At the moment, I have to spend a lot of time on the computer and rejoice about every visitor.
What a coincidence that I have a printer, 40 pages of thick colored paper and a weekend!

Make this life size sculpture from 100% paper on the next rainy saturday and never feel alone in your office again! Let’s go!

Step 1: What you need

Picture of What you need
  • 40 pages of (at least) 160 g / m2 paper: That is twice as thick as normal paper. Colored would be a great thing, because the model itself has no color. This is the small room I leave for your creativity.
  • Glue, scissors, cutter: I use liquid glue (UHU) because it dries on colored paper in seconds, and I have another smaller pair of scissors, and some little pins and a tweezer to hold stuff together while it dries.
  • Cardboard: For the back. About 12" x 12". As thin as possible.
  • Wallpaper: For the great pop-out-effect. Same size as the cardboard.

Wow, very nice!
Looks better without the wallpaper maybe in this case.

Really nice!

It was a lot of work (some days) but it's looking fantastic at the wall!

Had some problems with the nose, ears and fingers too but finally managed it (including two mistakes).

This is awesome, I'm gonna try to make this, but I'm a noob papercrafter so it probably won't turn out well XD

I used plain white 175 g/m2 paper. Worked perfectly and I placed it right above my desk. Actually used hot glue instead, but still turned out great! The only suggestion I might have is to add more letters to the tabs in places like the ears or fingers. Also it would help if you put more views on the sheets with the rendered models with the numbered piece placement because there were some blind-spots.

hey , how did you get the number to show up on the 3d model in the first page? Or did you create that in Photoshop as a guide.

kamibox.de (author)  vastmarie9 months ago
Yes, I added the numbers.

Awesome instructable, looks fantastic on my wall! Thinking of adding some solar powered led lights inside for a cool night time effect.

I absolutely love this . I'm new to papercrafts, this is the exact direction i am going with my work as an artist. what 3d software did you use to create this figure with so many polygons. Im teaching myself to use sketchup ,but should i be using a different program? my goal is to make large papercrafts with a high polygon count. any advice?

kamibox.de (author)  vastmarie11 months ago
Thank you! I am not very much into Sketchup, but I think there are better alternatives. For free software, there are Anim8or or Blender, Anim8or is simpler and very beginner friendly and should be enough for every papercraft. You can check out my Paper Clone Instructable, it is a bit older, but it explains the software a bit.

Tthanks for the quick reply! I will check out these programs. I do have another Q. How do you scale larger than pepakura's max scale size? To achieve something like this ( http://vimeo.com/81700014) on cardboard, or polypropylene sheets or recycled plastic. I hope you know Bc i was up until 5am searching the internet.

kamibox.de (author)  vastmarie11 months ago

I would use a normal scale model but let it print on a bigger format. Pepakura doesn't really have a max scale size, but from some point the polygons are too big for A4 / Letter.

Awesome Project! Loved making it!

The first one is in our office at work (IT) and the second one is under construction.

how did you mount the sculpture? just with nails?

It looks amazing by the way :)

kamibox.de (author)  schamupe1 year ago
Thank you! I made holes in the back plate and mounted it on 3 nails.

Does anyone have a video of how to put these pieces together? We are having some trouble. I did not see it on youtube. Thanks. Any help would be appreciated.

This would be fun to modify for Halloween; I'm thinking the ghosts from the Silent Hill 4 game.

Fun project!

what size paper did you use?
GitarGr82 years ago
Amazing. I think a paper deer head will be hanging on my wall in the near future.
eww, who wants a head of a deer on their wall :3
Thanks so much for this! I had a lot of fun making one ... I made a few mistakes, but overall it turned out very nicely. This will make a great decoration for Halloween!
The only suggestion that I have to improve it would be to print matching numbers on the surfaces to be joined ... it was sometimes a challenge to figure out the orientation of the pieces. (I'd post a photo of my effort, but the "add images" button isn't working).
I agree very much with you briangreiner... it needs matching numbers, I haven't been able to get 1 & 2 together and I am very patient. :/

Holy shit, exactly what I was planning to make (conceptually, didn't have an idea yet about how to tackle the practical side) and now I find it on here :D
There goes my instructable, but at the same time very nice to have a practical solution :D

Well you didn't win the cutter... But you could always sell the camera and buy the silhouette cameo cutter ( which is better) and more! Congratulations!

I will keep the camera and buy a silhouette cutter ;)
