Printing Death Star wall etc
« on: February 5, 2006, 01:21 AM »
Hi Guys

I'm wanting to make dio's for my SW figures and the first lot I want to do is some Death Star sections so I was wondering what paper do you guys use?

I'm using plain paper (A4 size) to print on and the prints look good and I was thinking of using woodglue, do you guys suggest any other glue to use?

When I would print out tech specs for Transformers, I used elmers white glue.

I would also use comic backing boards for strength. I put the glue on the board, then used a cutout of the tech with a 1/2 inch (1 cm) border. I placed the tech on the glued area. Then used a soda can to roll it as flat as possible. Be mindful that the excess glue that might get on the can does not accidently roll onto the paper.

You can buy spray adhesives (aerosol cans) that work very well.  However, you need to spray in a well ventilated area and you should lay out a bunch of old newspapers becuase the spray will go wider than just your paper.
