❣DIY Pirate Ship Using Cardboard❣

41581 ratings | 1225272 views
Hi, in this video tutorial I will show you how I made a pirate ship using some cardboard from pizza boxes, egg cartons, hot glue, thread, super glue and paint. It took me about 5 days to finish, working a couple of hours daily. I started by designing the patterns. I had some idea of what I want to create so I drew the profile of the ship, then the top view of the deck. The ribs of the ship were a little bit of a guessing game, only knowing two dimensions from the side view and the top view. I used pizza boxes cardboard for the entire project. It was about 2 mm thick so I doubled the patterns to get a stronger framework. I made some long 15 mm stripes of the same cardboard and started gluing them to the framework. I started from the bottom of the ship and worked my way up. I overlaid each piece over the one before just a little bit. I outlined the railing top view using the deck patterns. You can make the railing wider, thicker or thinner. Mine was 15 mm wide and 6 mm thick. I made the pillars gluing 3 small 30 x 5 mm cardboard pieces together. I added some details using thin stripes of cardboard on the sides. Although these details are not so visible now, they will look great when making the patina. I also added some round and square windows. At this point I needed a stand for the ship. I decided to go for a rocky one, full of textures. I made the stand out of egg cartons. I broke the carton into smaller irregular pieces and glued them together. This type of carton is easy to bend and glue in any shape you want. I made the main three pillars by rolling and gluing the cardboard until I reached the desired thickness. One pillar is about 20 mm thick. The middle one is the tallest and it has 360 mm, the one in front has 320 mm and the last one has 220 mm. I made the curved sails by gluing two pieces of cardboard together and bending them while the glue is still hot. I used the cutting mat to help along with the bending. I added threads as best as I could. I am no expert in this so I googled some images for reference. Even though I had no idea of the correct way this should be done, the threads added a realistic effect to the ship, and this aspect was all that mattered to me. I glued the ends of the threads using super glue. The painting was easy for this project. I covered the surface in a dark color first. This will serve as a base. Make it go in all the cracks and the deepest holes. It will act like a shadow and contrast layer when we add brighter colors. I add a brighter color only to the surface of the texture, gently rubbing the brush with very little pigment so I don't get it in the cracks. On top of that bright color you can add other colors as well. You can make it brighter and more colorful, it's your choice. I went for a wooden look for the main body of the ship. I painted the sails white first and then added a diluted brown to the top and spread it gently and dissolving it to the bottom until the sail looked older and used. I hope you liked my video and got some inspiration to start your own projects. Have fun! P.S.

Wished I'd seen this a few years back when I was building a boat for an RPG - I ended up using foamboard, dowels, posterboard, and foam sheets. This is vastly cheaper and looks as good.
