This Base Folk toy was inspired by love for mythology. A psychopomp is a spirit creature that guides your soul when you die. They do not pass judgement on you. They just give you safe passage between the realm of the living and the dead. I decided to make this psychopomp paper toy dressed in more of a Victorian style suite.

Instructions:

Make sure you are having fun. That is what paper craft is all about?

Take your time.

Have extra craft knife blades handy. It is always best to cut with a sharp blade.

Cut rounded parts with scissors and straight parts with craft knife.

When scoring be careful not to score to deep and cut all the way through the model.

Using the left over excess pieces of paper add a little glue to a piece of paper and use another piece to spread the glue.

Use a stick for gluing hard to reach areas. I normally hold pieces together for 10-15 seconds.

Tip: I spray my Paper Toys with Deft Clear Wood Finish Spray. It is a clear lacquer spray. Please test it on a scrap printout first. You would not want to spend all the time putting together a toy, then spray it and have the ink smear. If your printer ink does not run, spray it with 1 coat before cutting out and 1 coat after you have put it together. .
