Cone Grids and Images to Download

In order to use these templates, you will need a copy of the Adobe Acrobat reader. You can download a copy from the Adobe Website at http://www.adobe.com.

Instructions

These images are all based on putting images onto cones. There are also some grids for you to create your own anamorphoses.

When you have printed the sectors, cut them out and put some glue on the tab. Do not bend the tab as this distorts the cone. Making a cone with the image inside is harder when the tab is inside since the tab gets in the way at the tip of the cone. You may find it easier to trim away some of the tab towards the tip of the cone. Because the cone is harder to make, most images are for viewing inside the cone.

To use the grids, fill in squares on the normal grid, and then copy them to the anamorphic sector. Then make up the cone. You may find it easier to find your way around if you make a grid without colouring in first.
