A peek behind the curtain!

I used to stream my paper sculpting a few years ago (and intend to start up again, just not sure when), but it’s been a while since I shared my process – so here’s how my new sculpture “Puss in Boots” was made from start to finish!

First, I start with a sketch –

Then I figure out what the pieces should be and trace out shapes and attach them to their corresponding colored papers –

Next I cut out the pieces and then shape them (unfortunately the photo I took of the shaped parts was corrupted somehow!) –

Then finally, the shaped pieces are layered and glued together creating the finished sculpture!

And that’s how my paper sculptures are made! Sometime soon™ I’ll start live-streaming the creation of my sculptures again on Twitch. “Puss in Boots” is up for auction on ebay until the 27th of December as part of the Nibblefest Art Contest, a monthly themed art contest where entries are auctions starting at just 99 cents! You can check out all of this month’s entries here.

As always, if there are no sculptures currently in the shop that are right for you, but you’d still like to help support me and my art, you can use the Donate button below. Any donation would be greatly appreciated and would help tremendously. Donate Thanks for all the support over the years! I love what I do, I couldn’t do it without you, and I hope it brings you at least a little joy
