Today is a happy THORsday! I got published on HackSpace magazine May 2018 issue, which is focussed on paper engineering. HackSpace magazine is all about tinkering. You can find lots of different projects in each magazine, from 3D printing to things with LEDs, and even paper crafts.
Although I love technology, I also like playing with paper. Thus, you can find an article by Yours Truly on how to use paper and decoupage objects. I used a raspberry pi case, a box, a can, and a notebook as examples. I also used different types of papers to see what happens when you use them on different surfaces. Paper can react in a tricky way when in contact with smooth surfaces, especially if you’re using weak paper.
If you decide to give a decoupage project a go, always remember to consider what you’re going to glue together. Materials can seem average, but how they react with one another can affect the end results much. Plus, being impatient can also have devastating consequences.
If you have ordinary objects at home and wish to give them a personal look, you can decorate them in different ways. Decoupage is just one of them. Now you know what happens when you provide me with something “boring” as a present. I’ll end up applying something shiny or funky on it to make it mine.
If you want to give this magazine a go, please go here and read the magazine online, or order a paper copy of it.
