Tools and Materials for the Boxeeo and Valkyreeo Build

Boxeeo Helmet

There are six main steps to this build with 17 subtasks. If this is your first Crafteeo project or the first time doing this project, we recommend that your view the video of the assembly step once through before attempting that step. It is good practice to do a dry fit prior to gluing individual pieces to the assembly. This will help you anticipate issues and identify critical alignment features. Take your time and enjoy the build process.

Paint

You can use any number of coloring media, e.g. acrylic paint, spray paint, or markers, to finish your helmet. That is one of the big advantage of building with cardboard! We do recommend using simple craft paint. It is inexpensive, water-based for easy clean up and it paints onto the cardboard very smoothly. Below are some ideas on how to paint your helmets. We provide you a blank canvas, now unleash your creativity!
