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

  1. Hello. I was wondering if you could tell me what kind of paper would be best for building this model? Thanks yo soo much for posting it!!

    • I always use 200 gsm paper to build my papercraft models myself (200 grams per square meter, which is about 2.5x as thick as regular printer paper).

      Using thicker paper means the final paper model will be stronger, but other papercrafters often use thinner paper too, usually anywhere from 120-160-200 gsm paper (regular paper being about 75-80 gsm) or sometimes even special glossy or photo paper, so it’s really a personal choice.

      Wolf Link is a very challenging model (especially the head). Because it’s such a dark model, “edge-colouring” is a very nice technique that takes some extra work, but gets rid of the “white lines” you can get from the edges of the paper, especially on dark models like wolf Link.

      Take your time and have fun! ;o)

  2. i need help with part 13 i cant shape the smaller spike

    • Wolf Link is a *very* challenging model, because it has a lot of small parts and difficult folds. The most important thing, is to make sure you didn’t miss any fold lines, and make sure you fold them the right way (valley-fold: up, or mountain-fold: down)

      On the printed version (even on the version with fold lines) many of the fold lines are very difficult to see, so the best thing if you’re not sure you’re folding a part the right way, is to check it on the digital PDF file on your computer: zoom in, adjust the screen brightness if you need, and you will see which folds are vally folds and which are mountain folds.

      Score the fold lines before folding them, so you can make very sharp, crisp folds (this is especially important if you have to fold small parts and spikes on parts like part 13!).

      Look closely at the template and the arrows that point to which edges you need to glue together. Some spikes are almost “folded double” (they almost lie flat against the part instead of really sticking out) so don’t let that fool you!

      I’m afraid the pictures in the step-by-step instructions aren’t always very clear, but sometimes it helps if you zoom in and adjust the brightness.

      If you think you’ve figured it out, try it without glue first, to see if it looks like the picture and if fits with the other parts you already assembled. If it doesn’t, maybe you missed a fold line, or folded it the wrong way.

      I hope you can figure out how to fold the spikes with these tips, take your time and have fun!

  3. Is there a wolf-link without textures? I could colour it as a winter-ready direwolf (like the ones in Ice and Fire).
    Thank you for a great model! Definitely on my to-do list (though the list is long and the progress is very ssssllllloooowwwwwww)

    • Hi there, I’m glad you like my papercraft wolf Link! It’s a very challenging model, and I can relate to the long to do-list… Every time more new projects get put on the list than finished projects are removed from the list… ;o)

      I’m afraid I never made a blank wolf Link without textures; if you want to recolour it on the computer, I’m afraid you would have to colour the parts one by one in a graphics program…

      You could also colour it after building it with pencil, crayon, markers, paint etc. Then it might be a good idea to choose the lowest print setting or even change the brightness and/or contrast in a program like Gimp before printing it.

      That should make the templates a little less dark, so hopefully the dark colours won’t shine through your recolourings.

      Misaki repainted wolf Link into a “God of Frost” some time ago: link

      And Alikakadri painted it in the original colours (because she could only use a black and white printer to printed, but she wanted a coloured wolf Link): link

      So it’s definitely possible! ;o)

      Have fun on all your papercraft projects!
