These zines were made using just one sheet of paper and photocopied manually on the risograph! Here’s a step-by-step how-to:
*Promo: To receive a random copy of one of these zines, please email email@example.com!
A little bit of origami is involved. Fold the paper lengthwise, then crosswise a couple of times. Make a cut lengthwise down the middle across two page lengths (pictured).
Note the correct orientation of the images as well as the page numbering. As you can see, your drawings should be facing away from each other on each side lengthwise, and pages 1 and 2 and pages 5 and 6 are across from each other, not next to each other, so draw accordingly!
*Special tip: It may be easier just to fold up a blank sheet into its final booklet form and just draw on the booklet rather than on the flat sheet with all its changes in orientation.
The fun part!! Draw your pages!
*Special tip: If you would like to have a two (or more) colour zine, draw the first colour on one sheet, then use a lightbox or tracing paper to draw the second layer of colour on another sheet to be photocopied into the second colour.
Photocopy the zine on the riso! We decided to use Turquoise ink for the first layer and Melon ink for the second layer of the zine.
Fold the zine!
Now you can share your zines!
