I make a lot of signage, often using bandsaws and CNC machines. But not everyone has access to such tools, which can make creating 3D letters complicated. In this video, to demonstrate the use of paper and paper board to make letters, I create the “Make:” logo in chip board (orange) and a thinner paper (green) using only razors and Jade glue. It makes the process simpler to use a stronger board for the face of the letter, and the thinner paper to create the side of the letter. Enjoy!

Tools

  • Razor
  • Straight edge
  • Sand paper

Materials

  • Paper board
  • Paper
  • Jade glue
  • Spray paint (optional)

In each episode of DiResta (every other Wednesday at 2pm PT), artist and master builder Jimmy DiResta (Dirty Money, Hammered, Against the Grain, Trash for Cash) lets us into his workshop, to look over his shoulder while he builds whatever strikes his fancy.
