Today (First real blog post!), I will write about a hobby of mine - Papercrafting.
Papercraft is basicly a different name for paper models.
From Wikipedia-"Card modeling is making scale models from sheets of cardstock on which the parts were printed, usually in full color. These pieces would be cut out, folded, scored and glued together."
I love papercraft because of it's variety in models, difficulties and types. I spent a lot of time on papercraft forums looking for things I like and want to make. Out of all types of papercraft I absolutely love the ones with moving parts in them (especially gears and other engineer-y things) such as the Gear Cube, the Gear Heart, The Pendulum Clock. Currently I am working on The Gear Cube (replica) by Billybob884 (or is it 844?) on DeviantArt. An other thing I like about it, which is actually kind of silly, is the patience it takes to papercraft many of the models available, on the gear cube I've already spent around 12 hours and it will take a few more to complete it.
How I stumbled upon papercrafting
I've always loved making things out of paper, ever since I was around 9 or 10 I experimented with origami.
At the age of around 11, I found Canon's papercrafting site and I was amazed. Never before had I seen anything like it, and I immediately became crazy about papercraft.
And I've been papercrafting ever since :)
Any other papercrafters out there? Share some models with me if you like :)
