Bandits always have tragic back stories, especially when they’re unicorns. Hey, it’s the first page of Hannah's guest comic!
Hey look! The first page of my guest comic for Excellent Webcomic Battle Dog is up! Stay tuned for gripping equine backstories.
You made a paper mache sometime this past year or two didn't you? Any tips? Is there some special mix to buy or does an online recipe of flour and water probably get the job done?
(for those curious, the paper mache project in question is this)
I honestly went into that project pretty blind! I did about a ten minute Google search and set off to the nearest Michaels to buy some supplies. I bought a simple mask to serve as a base/support, which is really important because paper mache can be pretty droopy until it dries. Initially, I bought some newsprint to use for building it, but the paper was too thick to be malleable when it was wet. (the best type of paper for this is newspaper and catalogue/coupon paper) I cut up some pieces from a cereal box to serve as the bases for the ears and snout. The paste I made was a pretty rudimentary mixture of warm water and flour. After every layer added, I placed the paper mache in the oven (around 150-200F) for a few minutes so it would dry. You don’t want it to mold!!
I have some more old in-progress photos here; you can tell in the first photo that I still had the mask base intact. (I removed it after I had a few decent layers built up)
This site has a pretty basic writeup about the process and some good paste recipe options. Paper mache is nice because it’s inexpensive to make, since a lot of the materials are already in your home. (it’s just really messy and sometimes smelly) (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧

Hey, hey! I’m gonna be in Bethesda, Maryland, this weekend for Small Press Expo! I’m bringing along some ‘Secret of Angel Food Cake' minis, (that include some sketches as well) along with some shiny new postcards.
I am not tabling, so if you see me and want a mini or a postcard, let me know! I only have 50 copies of Angel Food Cake. (I accept trades, drinks, and cheeseburgers)
Hope to see you there! ♥
(and also at SPX Prom, which I am way more excited about than my own high school prom)
I recently hit a pretty big follower milestone on this blog and wanted to extend my love and gratitude~ thank you for your support, it really means the world to me!
Currently, I’m busy preparing for SPX next weekend, as well as other things on the horizon, so stay tuned!
Again, thank you, thank you, thank you!
THE SECRET OF ANGEL FOOD CAKE
I had a dream about some ethereal dog I somehow acquired the other night. My subconscious is all about the anime sparkles over kissing dogs’ foreheads, it seems.
