Papercuts: instructions and templates

Silhouettes were already a very popular art form in the Goethe era, and even today, both professionals and children enjoy the filigree, playful images. With a pair of scissors or other cutting tools, paper or other material is processed so that at the end either the remaining outline or the cutouts or both give a vivid picture.

Here you will find links to instructions on how to make your own silhouette or templates for silhouettes that can help you create a work of art.
