Paper craft products are shaped with solid bamboo, strips of bamboo and rice paper, in addition to silk fabric. After the three-dimensional skeleton is formed, its body gets painted and assembled. The four major steps in paper crafting include binding, paper-mounting, painting and adorning. The skeleton of the model is being first created. After rice paper strips are applied onto the skeleton, patterns and protective paint are being applied before felt decorations are added as a final touch.
