    Release the Kraken!

    Hi all,

    I know it's been a while but I wanted to share my latest project with you!

    This is an intricate 10-page papercraft model of an octopus that I transferred to sheet metal. The parts were then bent along the fold lines and welded together.
    Finishing was done using a die grinder, flapper wheel, spray paint, quick browning and liberal amounts of clear lacquer.

    I have seen low-poly animal models made out of steel before, but never using a folding template like it's used in papercraft.
    It's tricky to get those compound curves right - but it's doable and I'm fairly pleased with the result:

    That's exactly what I've done ;-)
    The papercraft template is from etsy, you'll find tons of patterns there:
