    Finishing a paper craft Jetpack

    So I have this paper craft jet pack that needs needs paint. I was just going to paint it with wood glue as a base, unless anybody had some better suggestions?

    Very nice looking pack. Did a great job with the pep. But if you want any type of durability you will need to have some structure to this. You will need to use fiberglass, card board or something & then use a resin to reinforce the pack. The card stock will not hold over time if you are planning on wearing this.

    After adding some type of structure you will need to use some type of filler to smooth things out, such as bondo.

    There are many examples of these processes in various threads here.
