A little summary of coloring process. Making a draft. This will be crucial for later use. Moving on to make a “mold.” Essential to make same-sized objects. After making a draft on a star on a paper, cut it with a clear file. Made multiple sizes from 5 mm to 8 cm in diameter. Used a “mold” to draft a star. “Molds” work greatly to reduce time when making same-sized materials. However, the “mold” is soft and not exactly accurate. Stars were adjusted by hand a little bit. Moving on to coloring. Used 0.25 mm ballpoint pen. Comparing the size of the pen to a ruler. Coloring. Note it’s being colored by drawing lines. Not a single part was painted. I was hoping to make it look like the lines are coming from the star. So I decided to draw lines from the center of the star. As expected, it’s time consuming. Took 3-4 hours just to finish this part. I assume this is how printers work. Finally moving on to another part. When coloring, put a ruler on a line so its very edge stays right on top of the line. And this is how it looks without the ruler. All it needs is repetition. That itself is quite simple but time consuming and exhausting. Finally finishing the red part. Making a frame. Since this star will be embossed-design, it will blend in to the background without it. Embossing. Again, it is made of repeated lines. Put a paper under my hand. Sweat is the worst enemy for this kind of time consuming work. When a paper absorbs sweat, it expands and distort. That must be avoided for precise drawing. Finishing emboss part. Not quite sure if this is what I had in my mind but found it interesting somehow. Now the middle part. Same method; adjacent lines. Done. It’s not really easy to tell if those blue lines are coming from the star from a distance. Might have been better if there were wider white lines coming from the star. Embossed star. Considering the time it took, I think there could’ve been a better way to put this somehow. Had some fun anyway though. Custom American flag.
