1⁄35Making Propaganda Posters
I was thinking the other night about how guys could attach
posters to a
diorama. Well, I got to thinking, bad idea, so I went to a site I had found
for German propaganda posters (http://stolz.by.ru/index.htm) and downloaded
a couple and began playing with them.
What I came up with was using self-adhesive labels and printing the graphics
to the labels. I use MS word and used the label feature under tools. The
cool thing about this is you can position the graphic on the label and
resize to the correct size.
I took the one on the left and did some size and color adjustments in Corel
Photo Paint. The one on the right was pasted directly into the document. I
had to resize both graphics the left just a little and the left completely.
I printed the labels on EPSON Styles C80 color ink jet printer. Next I used
a steel ruler and an X-ACTO knife to cut the graphics from the sheet of
Now here’s the really cool part, just peal and stick the poster where you
need it and your done.
