How to make 3D Posters

A strong paper base for this poster was made by gluing two layers of newspaper together, and then a final layer of plain newsprint. When thoroughly dry, press the base for a few hours between two sheets of card weighted with some heavy books. When taken from the press the paper will be flat, but with an interesting rippled surface, which when painted and decorated with 3D objects creates a lively appearance when hanging on a plain wall. The figure´s head is made from a parcel of crumpled paper and the teddy from layers of soft paper kitchen roll, the hand made book can be opened to show colourful pages.

Newspaper Grain

Newspaper Grain

Newspaper and newsprint has a grain, and when building up layers, each alternate layer should have the grain lying at right angles to the previous layer. To find out the direction of the grain of a sheet of paper, tear the paper and you will find that tearing along the grain produces a fairly straight tear, whilst tearing across the grain produces a very ragged tear.

A quick 3D poster

3D Clown Poster

A quick base for this poster is a piece of cardboard cut from a large box, with a sheet of plain newsprint taped on the front. The clown was drawn on the paper, then the head, made from a parcel of crumpled paper, was taped in place. A round button nose, made from a small round parcel of paper was glued on the face. A small piece of card was taped above his head to extend his hair above the edge of the poster. An upturned paper plate was glued on, to make a round body shape. The figure was then painted and a big bow of coloured wrapping paper glued under his chin.
