I started by drawling the outline of the base of my boat and then using a jigsaw to cut the base out.
The materials I used were the following:
- 3 art shipping boxes, 40" x 36" x 5" that we bought from Postal Annex
- 4 rolls of Gorilla Tape
- 1 can of black spray paint
- 1 bag of black feathers
- 1 bag of large stickers
Step 1: Building the Sides of the Boat
I then measured side walls to wrap each side of the boat.
Step 2: Molding the Boat
I had to bend and mold the cardboard around the base to take shape.
Step 3: Trimming the Edges
I had to use a box cutter to trim off excess cardboard.
Step 4: Taping the Boat
I asked my dad to help me hold the boat while I taped it to hopefully make it waterproof.
Step 5: More Taping
More pictures of me taping.
Step 6: And More Taping ..
This is why I used 4 rolls of tape.
Step 7: Spray Painting
Here I am spray painting the wings to be added for decoration.
Step 8: Adding the Boat Name
Here I am putting on the last of the letters to my boat.
Step 9: Details
Adding the feathers to my boat to make if look like a raven.
Step 10: Completed Boat
I'm happy with my finished product. I hope it floats!
