Papercut This Book – which allows people who have no artistic ability to create beautiful artworks – is now available for pre-order world-wide.
The book by Boo York City’s editor, Boo Paterson, provides all the paper, templates and instructions you need to start making your own stunning papercuts.
It shows you step-by-step how to craft your own rainforests, jungles and the animals that live in them. Learn how to cut and bring to life a variety of animals, from tigers to sloths, kangaroos to orangutans.
Papercut This Book is perfect for beginners as well as those wanting to develop their skills at papercutting.
The templates are graded from easy to difficult, so you can improve as you work your way through the book. Full-colour images of the finished work show you how to bend and manipulate the paper to get a bas relief effect.
There is also advice on how best to frame and present your completed masterpieces.
The book allows people with no artistic ability to get spectacular results using unique templates. This way, the user is able to enjoy the meditative process of cutting, learn papercutting techniques, and have a beautiful artwork to frame at the end.
Paterson said: “Papercut This Book is ideal for beginners and I hope that it may inspire people to create their own artworks when they grow in confidence.”
