Item details

Let me introduce you to French Queen Marie-Antoinette and French King Louis XVI who were both beheaded after the French Revolution.

These framed wigged skulls will be a great addition to skull lovers who are getting sick of animal trophies.

Make them yourself! There are 3 PDF templates you can print on the cardstock of your choosing, then cut, fold and glue together to get a chic couple as wall decoration.

The assembly guide is thoroughly illustrated to make things easy for young beginners.

You also get tips and tricks to make neat sculptures, as well as recommendations on the types of paper and glue to use and the types to get away from.

Try them, they are easier than you think!

■■■ BONUS 1
A practice template

■■■ BONUS 2
Access to a Facebook group (clickable link in the instructions) where you can:

■■■ HOW TO PROCEED
A few seconds/minutes after your purchase, Etsy will automatically email you a download link to a zip file. Unzip it and you will have access to:
- - - 3 plain (no colour, no texture) PDF templates
- - - An easy-to-follow, illustrated step-by-step tutorial
- - - Recommendations on the best types of paper and glue to use
- - - Getting started tips and more advanced tips
- - - And... a practice template!

■■■ IN A NUTSHELL
No particular skill is required. Try to be as accurate as possible, and the angles will magically take shape on their own. Just trust the paper, take your time, and everything will be fine.

Don't be afraid of messing things up. You can print the templates again and start over as many times as you like.

■■■ ABOUT THE PROCESS
- - - Gather coloured or patterned A4 or Letter sized cardstock, as well as some glue, scissors, a ruler and a scoring tool (your nails if you don't have any other tool).

- - - Print the template, score the dashed lines, cut along the solid lines, fold and glue the tabs together. The parts follow a numerical order to make it easier for you.

- - - Hang the skulls and frame on the wall using 3 thumbtacks - the backing pieces have holes just for that. The instructions show you exactly where to place the pins romeach other.

And voilà, you will be as proud and happy as your chic wigged skulls!

FAQs

Surprisingly, yes. Those sculptures may look impressive, but they are designed with *motivated* beginners in mind and have been tested by true beginners. The process of assembly has been made intuitive to relax your brain so that you won't have to figure out what step you should take next. The enclosed illustrated instructions make things even easier as they suggest where to start to glue each piece. That said, I wouldn't recomment the shark as debut model because the 3D teeth are tricky.

I would rather say adults and teens above 13, just to be safe.

■ Printer or your local print shop ■ A4 Paper (160-220 gsm) or US Letter (65 lb cover or 110 lb index like this one for example: https://www.amazon.com/Neenah-Astrobrights-Premium-Assortment-Inches/dp/B003A2I6T2) ■ Cutting tool ■ Scoring tool (the dull side of a craft knife, dried out ball pen, etc.) ■ Ruler ■ White glue ■ Pin or nail ■ And obviously, a wall.

■■■ PAPER Coloured or patterned A4 (160-220 g/m²) or US Letter American friends, this kind of cardstock is fine (this is *not* an affiliate link): https://www.amazon.com/Neenah-Astrobrights-Premium-Assortment-Inches/dp/B003A2I6T2 ■■■ GLUE Quick drying white glue! (mundane quick drying wood glue, or Aileen's, or Elmer's, or Mod Podge, an so on). I wouldn't recommend: glue sticks nor transparent liquid glues. Don't worry, all these recommendations are reminded in the instructions along with extra advice on how to glue properly.

Go to your local copy store with a thumb drive. They usually have a wide range of paper colours, and if you are lucky, various weights. They will print your template for you for next to nothing. Ask 180 gsm (65 lb cover) in priority, then 160 gsm (110 lb index) if they don't have 180. (The tutorial is to be printed on regular office paper, or not to be printed at all)

In this shop, you will find PDF patterns you can turn into paper sculptures. Nothing physical will be sent to you. You can download your files directly from your Etsy account a few seconds after your purchase. Here is how you can make your own paper sculpture: - - - Download & print the template (using A4 or US Letter thick paper) - - - Read through the getting started tips - - - Have a glance at the illustrated instructions Then start building: - - - Following the pattern, cut out each individual part - - - Score and fold along the dotted lines - - - Pair up the twin numbers to glue the pieces together After it's finished: - - - Hang on the wall using pins or nails, just like a picture frame - - - Be proud and do the happy dance :)

I do, as long as none of the files have been downloaded.

No, that's ok to download them multiple times. I'm just asking you not to share or publish the files though, and not to use them for profit of any kind. Don't mess with the copyright law.

Yes and no. You are allowed to sell the sculptures to make room for example. The point here is you can not make a business out of my work. Thank you.

    Stephane designs wonderful 3D papercraft sculptures. I made Marie Antoinette then converted her to a dias de la muertos Catrina Sugar skull for Halloween.
