How-to build:

Wendigo papertoy - How-toFold lines for Hannibal Wendigo/Stag Man paper toy

  1. Print your model, usually it takes only 1 or 2 pages of A4 paper (can be printed on legal paper too with some scaling). I prefer paper with thickness of 120gsm, but regular office paper works too (for the info – it’s 80gsm thickness).
  2. Get a good glue. Usually PVA glue is recommended for papercraft, but in some parts of the world getting a decent PVA glue is unexpectedly tricky – a normal liquid clear glue is fine too. Glue in a stick won’t work though – details of paper toys are too small to use it. I prefer to apply glue with wooden toothpicks.
  3. I recommend scoring future fold lines on the uncut page (indicated on how-to pic) with pointed but blunt instrument (empty pen, knitting needle…)
  4. Then cut all the details, as some details are small – you may have to use smaller scissors.
  5. Fold all pieces.
  6. Assemble head, put it aside.
  7. Glue front piece of face and horns hair to it’s back part. Back part is made larger intentionally, to allow some margin of error here. Cut excess paper. Put aside.
  8. Assemble main body.
  9. There is an “extra body piece” that goes to close the gap between legs – it can be challenging it glue in (I use pincers to hold it in place), but it can be skipped and your figure will still look great.
  10. Assemble hands, put them aside.
  11. Assemble figure stand.
  12. TIP: If you want your paper toy to look really polished and tidy – carefully color white edges of the papertoy in corresponding colours (or in black). Any paint or marker can be used. This instantly elevates figure and also can be used to hide any build imperfections.
  13. Time to put it all together. Recommended order:
    1. Glue body to figure stand.
    2. Attach coat to top of the body.
    3. Glue in hands to the coat. Good position for hands – 0,5cm (0.2 inch) from the neck on the sides of the body.
    4. Glue in head.
    5. Glue in face to the head.
  14. All done!
