Pinkie Pie 11.Update - 90% done by Znegil Pinkie Pie 11.Update - 90% done by Znegil
Well, putting on a 2.Layer of paint is always a boring process and takes much longer then I thought,
because I always see some less then perfect spot when I think I am finished... and then another... and another...
I forced myself to consider her mane, tail and body now as finished,
so all there is left are the eyes and her cutie mark to paint.

----------------------------
She is about 103 cm high (to the top of the hair), that is 3 feet 4 inch
made from 300 g/mē paper and glue.
All the papers and and the .pdo file will be ready for download for you as soon she is completed.
I modified a 3D model :iconkp-shadowsquirrel: made [link] so that I could make a papercraft out of it.

Thanks.
As I started to do this I searched the Internet, because I wanted to know how the best way to paint the models is,
and found nothing...
It was like "Hey dummy, it is made of PAPER, you dont want it to get wet!"
But I tried anyway ;-)
Since I use the very thick 300 g/m2 paper and use thick acrylic paint, it works very good.
I hive them a first thin layer, that protects the model, after this is dryed I can apply a secound thicker layer.
Now I am looking into different technics to harden my models... in a non-toxic easy way (since I donīt want to use resin).
I found that PU-based wood glue mixed with water becomes a good hard PU-foam to fixate difficult parts on the inside, like tail-butt connection.
I now look inside a acrylic plaster mixture to paint it on the outside before I apply my paint.
It is so much fun to try new things.

That sounds really interesting.
i should try that one day when i finally am able to get the thick paper instead of the regular printing paper.

Also i had an idea i'd like to have an opinion on:
i often see cute papercrafts and what if you stuff them with the stuffings that's also used for plushies and such. Would that help making them stronger and more durable? :?

Best practice is to take the papers you like to print to a copy shop that has thick paper,
here in germany most have 300 g/m2 paper and if you only print it without color like I do it is not expensive.
I believe my pinkie Pie printout was about 20 Euro.
To stuff the models would make them more resistent, because there is some pressure from within the model, depending on how much you stuff in them.
