I love papercraft - so I made my own for you to download, print and build! ;o)

  1. For the pattern on the mask parts, is there a way to alter the colors?
    for example the purple could you possibly change it to any other color?

    • With a bit of work, that would be possible yes.

      The template for the paper model is really just an image file, even though I made it into a PDF file. With a program like Photoshop or Gimp (kinda like a free, lite version of Photoshop) you can open the PDF file as an image, and then do all the things you can do with regular images too. ;o)

      Here’s a quick tutorial on how to change colours in Gimp: link (although the Color to Alpha option is now in the Color menu, I think, not under Filters)

      In Photoshop, you can use the Replace Color option under Image > Adjustments.

      But the purple and the other colours aren’t really one, solid colour of course, but a range of purples and other colours, so you’d have to play with it a bit to get a good effect.

  2. This is a great papercraft and I’m a fan of your work. Just one question…. Can you assemble the papercrafts with normal paper that isn’t thick, or would it tear easily? I want to make a papercraft for my friend’s christmas present and I want to get it done earlier. Also, I need to know all the things I would need to assemble this….

    • You can really use any paper you like, but generally, the thicker the paper you use, the stronger the final model.

      My Majora’s Mask isn’t very big, though, and as long as you handle it with a bit of care, it shouldn’t tear apart so easily, even when built with regular printer paper. The best way to find out is to try it, of course! ;o)

      The things you need are the parts of course, glue (any regular glue like Elmer’s glue, Uhu or even wood glue will do, but most people don’t like to use glue sticks for papercraft).

      You’ll need a sharp knife (any hobby knife will do) and preferably a rubber cutting mat or some other cutting surface to protect your desk. ;o)

      Those are the bare essentials, but you can use any other tool you like of course. Take your time to fold and shape the parts before glueing them together to get the best results.

      Some people like to colour the white edges of the paper with pencils or markers to get rid of the white lines of the paper, but the thinner the paper you use, the smaller/less obvious the white lines will be.

      Yamaha has a nice papercraft tutorial for beginners here: link

      With those tips, I’m sure you’ll be able to build Majora’s Mask for your friend! Take your time and have fun building!

  3. hello I would like to know how to make the papercraft mask majora

    and close the file because I need a tutorial

    • I’m not sure I understand your question, but if you are looking for the parts to make your own Majora’s Mask, you can download them underneath the picture: they are in Portable Document Format (PDF) so you need to have a PDF reader installed on your computer (most computers already have one installed, but if yours don’t, Adode Reader is a free one that’s widely used).

      If you have a PDF reader installed, the PDF files should open directly in your browser window if you click the links, but you can also right-click and save the links to save the PDF files to your computer so you can also open them offline.

      There are two links for the parts: with and without lines. The version *with* lines shows all the fold lines, so it’s important to know where to fold the parts.

      You can build that version, or the version *without* lines so you don’t have black fold lines showing on the finished paper model; if you build the lineless version, you can check with the version *with* lines to see where to fold, as demonstrated on this YouTube video (I used a simpler model for the demonstration, but the principle is the same).

      There is also a link to a PDF file with step-by-step instructions, in the form of pictures and texts in case you get stuck. You don’t really have to print it, and if you view it on your computer instead, you can zoom in and change the brightness a bit if the pictures are too dark.

      If you’re having trouble opening the PDF files, try clearing your temporary internet files and internet cache, then close all your browser windows, and then re-start your internet browser and try again. You can also try downloading / saving the PDF files to your computer first and then open them offline.

      I hope this helps, good luck and have fun building!

  4. make a life sized majara’s mask!

    • To make the Majora’s Mask model bigger, you could try printing it at a bigger scale, possibly on a large format printer / plotter if you can.

      Or you could open the PDF files in a program like Gimp or Photoshop and enlarge the parts as regular images before printing.

      If you want to make it life-sized and still print it on regular sized paper, most parts won’t the sheets anymore, but you can simply let them be cut off and then glue / tape them together again when you build it.

      There is a bigger sized version of my Majora’s Mask model here, but I don’t know if it’s really life-sized…?

  5. Nice model! I would start to build it now, but im outta colored ink :(

    • That’s too bad! But don’t worry, it will still be here once you’ve gotten some new ink. Majora’s Mask will look much better with fresh, full colours! ;o)
