ok i think this pep helmet sucks 1 because its regular paper 2 didnt use the vally and mountain folds and three its my first time.
i wanted to know can i use card stock on a printer and print it from there or wat
help wanna make a bad@$$ pep helmet like the rest of you's :shock:
Yes, u can use cardstock on a regular printer, all u gotta do is buy 110 lb. cardstock from staples. I got mine for like 11 dollars and it comes with 250 sheets... Then as you fold, u shold do it infront of ur comp cuz the pepakura designer offers a really good reference point as to how things will look. No offense but its my first time to and so far mine is taking a better shape then urs does and I didn't score. IMO you dont really need to score because all it does is make it easier to fold but if you can fold on your own using a fingernail etc, then you should be fine. Also when you fold dont fold to much but just enough so thats its relatively flexible as you will be moving about the folds when you start hotgluing it together. I haven't made it as far as resining yet, but as I understand it that is the simpler part of the entire process. Im a noob 2 and am learning as I go. Its really funny becuase my teacher is giving me credit for doing this project in his class while the others have 2 do something else (its called practical arts, what do u expect) Anyway thats my 2 cents, happy pepakuring , btw your post helped me determine how much to fold it ty so much
It looks like you've got the general idea down. I'm a serious noob when it comes to this as well. It just takes time and patience. I tried to rush through my helmet and it ended up looking like crap. I re-did the helmet and the rest of my armor using the Good Folds Tut. Man was it a life saver Anyways, here's a picture of what I've got done so far. Well, I've got more bondo and sanding to do! Good luck!
