1 Start With The Stencil
Print the stencil, and use your DoodlePad or place tape over the stencil to keep the plastic from sticking to the paper. Outline the stencil using Gold filament.
Cornela's Tip: You can always make your own stencil, or create your own pattern instead of the one on this stencil. You can use whatever colors you like, or make the crane one solid color as well!
2 Color Inside The Lines
Start to fill in areas with different colors.
3 Assembly Lines
Begin assembly using the Gold, or whichever color you used for the outline of the stencil. Start by turning the first pentagon face down, one set of neck and tail pieces, and one set of inner body pieces.
Connect the long edges of the head pieces to form the crane's head.
Add the neck and tail to the inner body parts.
Add the inner body parts to the pentagon.
Add the head onto the neck, then add the other neck piece.
Complete the tail with the second tail part.
Add the inner body parts to the completed neck and tail, then add the last pentagon on top to complete the body.
4 Heating Things Up
Use the hot air gun or hair dryer to gently warm the whole body. Slowly and gently start to shape the crane by enlarging hollow space inside the inner body to give it more of a 3-dimensional look.
5 Take Wing
Using the hair dryer or hot air gun, shape the tail and wings for the final look.
Your very own Doodled Origami Crane is now complete!
