Don's Build tips for you...

Don is very generous with his build tips. Not only did he demonstrate for you, through this article, but I have seen him do the same for many visitors to the IPMC.

Don employs a set of tools that each facilitate specific folding or shaping effects (see pic 1). At the IPMC , Don shared a kit, coming together, beside his tools (see pic 2). This permits some explanation on how to use these tools. (see pic 3).

But first, here’s a look at the wide variety of tools used (see pic 4).

Next section, Don shares tips on how to roll a paper part into a convincing curve (see pic 5). He starts by using a rounded tool, a cylinder the size of a pencil, to roll over a piece of cardstock on a softer, sponge-like block, to avoid crimping or damaging the paper, as it is shaped…
