Creativity: Cardboard Models

Using Cardboard Tubes

This is an original idea, on a large scale, that can make use of the inner cardboard tube of a carpet roll. Smaller cardboards tubes could also be used for smaller scale models.

When using a jig-saw to cut along the anti-clockwise seams of an inner cardboard tube, it is important to have a firm grip on the tool as the cardboard texture is tough.

As you can notice, the twisting coils from inner cardboard tube of Carpet Roll offer inner and outer surfaces that can be painted / decorated with poster or acrylic paints, creating interesting coiled structures. Using white paint on the inner surface and black paint on the outer surface and visa versa coils can be photographed in various arrangements creating photos that are stunning when illuminated by different light sources with creative shadows emerging !
