Stand box on its side. Cut off flaps with scissors. Cut off half the top of box. Using the photo as a guide, draw a curved line on each side of box, then cut along line. Use leftover cardboard to design the sewer’s multi-level floors, using photo as a guide.STEP 2
Before you put floors in place, work out the position of the sewer pipes. Position toilet or paper-towel rolls in place, and trace around them with a pencil. Then cut out circles in floors.STEP 3
In top of box (the street), position sink strainer to make main access to sewer. Trace around strainer, then cut out circle. Position strainer over the hole.STEP 4
Tape floors in place. Then glue or tape sewer pipes in place. You can add more pipes at the bottom, if you like, so goo spills over into the sewer.STEP 5
Let glue dry, then spray-paint inside of box silver. Work in a well-ventilated area or outside.STEP 6
Use green and blue heavy-body acrylic paints (thicker than normal paint and more like goo) to paint the sewer as shown.STEP 7
Draw a city skyline on a sheet of cardboard, cut out, then tape to the back of the box. Paint it blue. For extra effect, you can also tape 2mm single-link chains to the roof of the sewer.STEP 8
