On Etsy since 2017

KaBlackout is a magic word for turning paper into art!

We are a papercraft design studio with 3D modelling experience gained in over 15 years in the commercial digital theatre industry. Now we’re directing this expertise into our long-time passion for contemporary paper art.

We hope you will enjoy combining our templates with your creative skills to transform everyday flat sheets of card into unique three dimensional display pieces.

We create our own unique designs for you to bring to life. Our templates and assembly guides are fully tested and user-friendly. All the images you see in our listings are actual paper sculptures handmade by ourselves. We never use computer mock-ups to represent our sculptures in any of our photographs.

KaBlackout is a dynamic duo based outside a small village in Northern Ireland where the sheep outnumber the people!

Thank you for your interest and support.

Frequently asked questions
If I buy one of your products what do I get?

Your order comprises multiple PDF files. Included will be a black and white template for your sculpture and an English language assembly guide which can be printed on either A4 paper or US Letter size paper. In addition you will need some basic craft supplies such as scissors and glue.

You then follow the advice in the assembly guide to cut out the component parts of the sculpture from the template and stick them together to build your sculpture.

How do I receive my purchase?

We don’t send you a physical product, instead you will receive a download link immediately after your payment clears.

If you have not purchased a digital item before there is a helpful guide on how to download it at this link https://www.etsy.com/uk/help/article/3949

What if there is a fault with my file?

Due to the nature of our products being digital downloads we are unfortunately not able to accept returns, exchanges or cancellations.

However if there is a fault with any of the files you have downloaded or if any of the files are not as described please contact us within 14 days of purchase and we will try to resolve the issue.

Do I need to use special paper to make my sculpture?

No, just ordinary paper cardstock available from high street stationers and craft shops. The templates are fully compatible with both US Letter and International A4 format paper.

Card stock is available in various sizes, colours, textures and finishes from stationery and craft shops. Part of your fun in the creation process is to choose your own colour scheme. Card stock is often classed by weight in GSM which stands for grammes per square metre.

Unfortunately a few home printers have difficulty with heavier cardstock. If you are unlucky this way, you have the options to either get the template printed at your local copy shop or try using a lighter cardstock that your printer can process.

Do I need to use heavy cardstock for my sculpture?

In the assembly guide for our sculptures we will suggest a particular cardstock weight based on our own experience of building the sculpture shown in our photographs. This is just a suggestion, if the suggested cardstock is not available, use whatever paper and cardstock you have to hand and see how you get on. However using heavier cardstock will give you a sturdier finished sculpture, while using lighter cardstock will mean a less durable result.

How do I stick my sculpture together?

There two alternative ways to stick your sculpture together. If you want to use glue, we recommend that you use a white glue that turns clear when it has dried. PVA-type glues such as Mod Podge or Elmer’s Glue-All are ideal. We have a short video showing how to assemble a sculpture with glue at https://youtu.be/k9j8HYASC4g

If you prefer, high-tack double-sided adhesive tape can be used instead of glue. We use this method when we are assembling sculptures which use speciality materials such as glitter or metallic-finish cardstock which can be difficult to bond with PVA glue. Unlike glue, tape bonds instantaneously so you may find that you can assemble your sculpture faster and more neatly by using tape but this method is more expensive.

How long does it take to assemble a KaBlackout sculpture?

This will vary as some crafters are more experienced than others and some sculptures are more challenging than others. We give each sculpture a difficulty rating running from 1 to 5. (1 is easy and suitable for novice papercrafters, 5 is challenging and aimed at experienced papercrafters). Each item listing will tell you an estimate of the difficulty level and assembly time.

Am I allowed to resell your templates or sculptures made from your templates?

No.

Re-selling or distributing our products or selling items made from our templates is strictly prohibited.
