Why do I do what I do? I'm not sure but if you can tell me that would be great! I've always been fascinated with paper. I did a lot of origami when I was a kid. A couple of years ago I came across a 3D paper Mario and shortly after that I found some hakos (originally designed by Masasmune Washington (I think)). They were small and cute so I made a template and have been designing them since. Now, I understand they are suppose to be simple but hakos like Ghost Rider have to be more complex to look good.
I use some cardstock I purchased from Wal-Mart.
'Edging' is the coloring (I use markers) of the cut paper edge. This helps give the finished model a 'professional' look. I use different kinds of markers but mainly I make sure they have a pointed tip in order to get into small spaces.
Inkjet Printer (or any kind of color printer)
Glue (I use regular Elmer's glue)
