meanwhile-in-the-shire asked: Hello! I just saw your silhouette book of Lee Pace-gorgeous! Can I ask what kind of paper you use? I've been trying to do something similar but I always get a bit of a ragged edge and I'm not sure if its the paper, xacto knife, or the cutting board (I don't have a mat) Can you help?
Hello! Thank you for asking about my Lee Pace book.
I use an ordinary paper from local stationery store in my city. It looks like this. It has smooth texture.
Based on my experience, it doesn’t really matter what kind of paper you use. I pay more attention to the thickness. Thicker paper is more difficult to cut. You should try to cut some papers with different thickness to find which one you feel most comfortable with. For Lee Pace book. I use 200 gsm paper. Cutting thin paper, such as 100 gsm paper, is much easier and you’ll get a neat cut. But. it won’t be able to stand steadily when the book is opened because it’s too thin. If you use thick paper, such as 300 gsm, it will look good when the book is opened. But, it’s more difficult to make a neat cut on thick paper. You will also need more power to make the cut on thick paper. So, I chose the 200 gsm paper. Easy to cut, but also can stand quite steady.
I also suggest you to use cutting mat and sharp x acto knife because they are really helpful to make a nice shaped cut. Just don’t forget to be careful with the knife.
I hope this help. x
