Tutorial 08: Create a Realistic Paper Mask of Yourself (advanced)

Impress your friends with your home-made 3D paper-mask of your face (self portrait). (cost: 1x A4 photo paper print-out)

Software used: Photosculpt Textures demo, Blender, Photoshop

I had this idea for fun on holiday and I thought there should be a way to do that (for free). So I imagined this step-by-step procedure whitch is not easy and require patience, dexterity and a good knowledge of your 3d software (here I used the free software Blender)

As it's inventor I'm proud to say that the easiest part is actually to create the 3D model of the face itself (using my software Photosculpt Textures 30 days trial demo)!

I really enjoyed the whole process. Have fun!

An original idea of Eric Testroete (thanks for sharing!) who had that from Bert Simons.

The japaneese software Pepakura designer 3 ( value US$ 33) is a much better choice for the paper model design phase.
Well, too late for this mask. But you might want to check it out?
