Pokemon Papercraft - Wartortle by PaperBuff Pokemon Papercraft - Wartortle by PaperBuff
I :heart: turtles. And Turtle Pokémon are no exception. So, when Brandon made this model, it jumped up to the top of my WIP pile. :w00t:

I'm really happy how this one turned specially because I forgot to turn on the overflow paint in Pepakura and I got a bit petrified since I've gotten used to using it since the Pokédolls. :boogie:

Medium difficulty build. Big, fluffy tail means you need weights to make it stand up. Even though the tail almost touches the ground, it doesn't quite, it's raised maybe 2 mm above. I added a penny inside the bottom of it's front shell.

To be released soon, at the usual place, Paperpokés [link].

It looks amazing! How do you get the white edges of the paper to not show up in your papercraft? Do you print on colored paper, color the edges with markers, or just photoshop it to look so good?

For smallish crafts like this, I like using heavyweight paper (32 lb/ 120 gsm) instead of card stock. It is thick enough while the minimizing the white lines.

A lot of it is experience too, I have built quite a number of papercrafts. Though I didn't use it for Wartortle, there is also an option called Overflow Paint in Pepakura that can help minimize white lines.

I've only colored my edges twice (for the Mario and Luigi hats, cause I used photo paper and very thick card stock)and I only photoshop my pics to adjust brightness and add backgrounds.

Hoped that helped. If you need more tips, you're welcome to send me a note.

Hmmm... I've been using cardstock. I'll have to see about trying some 32lb paper when I start to get serious. And the whole concept of "Overflow Paint" illudes me, but I'm guessing experience is the key to creating such an amazing papercraft as yours. But thanks for all the tips!
