Introduction: Paper Mâché TARDIS
I have seen many "make your own TARDIS" tutorials but all of them took to long (I have like no patience) so I made my own.
This is the perfect "rainy day" project, I made the whole thing and I didn't have to leave my house to buy supplies
Step 1: Materials
•a few cardboard boxes
•tardis blue paint
•yellow paint (optional)
•a small spool emptied of thread
Step 2: Construction
•Make four rectangles out of cardboard that are 24.8 cm by 13.6 cm
•make two squares out of cardboard that are 13.6cm by 13.6cm
•cut them out with and x-acto knife
Note- they don't have to be perfect,we are going to paper mâché over them
•tape one of the squares to a rectangle, it helps if you get someone to hold it for you while you tape
•keep taping the pieces together until you get a rectangular prism
Step 3: Paper Mâché
•make the pulpy mixture- 1/2 cup of flour, 1cup of water, and one spoon of salt
• make strips of newspaper
•dip the strips in the mixture, when you take them out push the access mix off of the strip -you will get messy
• lay them on your tardis
• repeat until your tardis is completely covered
•let it dry over night...or something....maybe just a few hours
Step 4: Painting
( I didn't take pictures off this so bear with me)
•first put one or two coats of white paint (this is optional but I feel like it will make your tardis last longer)
•next a coat of blue paint
• pencil in the squares, windows, and doors. When you like how they look, paint them in.( I put the template up there for the front and the side)
• paint the spool blue and yellow (or white) and glue it on top
Step 5: You're Done!
Have fun with your newly instated time machine!
