This is my Yellow Submarine project 100% in cardboard and newspaper. It can be made whit a very little budget and a week of work!
The size of the model can be modify to attend your demand too.
Step 1: #1 Materials!
Here goes the list:
- LOT's of cardboard
- A4 paper
-Glues: Hot, White, Contact
Step 2: #2 Preparing the Model
I got this free paper model toy in the web. 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.
Save the models after work, you can build another submarine in the future!
Step 3: #3 Building It
I recomend to use a stapler and lot's of contact glue to put the submarine togheter.
Step 4: #4 Finishing
Now you cut the newspaper in smaller parts, and whit a paint brush spread white glue over the cardboard.
This will give more uniformity and resistance to the piece.
After some layers...
It's time to paint!
To glow in dark light, I paint my one whit neon spray
Varnish its a great idea too!
To float in the pool i used some foam.
Hope you enjoy! =)
Sorry by my poor english =/
