Asset Building: Toilet Roll

Updated: May 29, 2020

Making the toilet roll was the easiest asset to make.

Materials I used:

Toilet roll

PVA glue

Inner toilet roll cardboard.

Scissors

Paintbrush


I cut a 15mm strip of the toilet roll cardboard and curled it around the paint brush and applied PVA glue to secure the roll.


While that dried, I folded up 2 connected squares of toilet roll and cut 15mm width of the toilet roll.


Next I used a dab of PVA glue to glue one end of the toilet roll to the cardboard, and then curled the toilet roll around it till I got to the end of it. I applied a tiny bit of glue to the end of the toilet roll to make sure that it wouldn't unroll on set.


I then repeated this 3 more time, except with the last one I left a bit of toilet roll unglued from the roll its self so that it hands freely. To avoid movement of this hanging bit of toilet roll during filming, i coated it with a thin layer of PVA glue so it hardened but still looks like toilet roll.
