I found plans and a template to make a Stormtrooper helmet out of cardboard. Once the cardboard pieces are cut, assembled and glued, the helmet is then coated in compound, sanded, painted.
What I want to do is cut the many cardboard pieces as instructed, but then use the pieces as a template...
I'm from London UK and am finding the veneer softener difficult to source. I've found a formula online which is as follows;
1 gallon of water
8 Oz of glycerin
8 Oz of Methalated spirits (denatured alcohol)
Will there be any side effects using this formula..? Walnut burr is really expensive haha
