Productive day!



First, I made the forms for the jaws. They have teeth on. You know what teeth are? CONES.

Sigh.

Anyways, got those done, think they turned out well. Next I went to the task of bending all of the other cones I had made. The spikes all have bends in them so mine have to too. The easiest way I've found to do this is to cut it at an angle half the angle you want it to bend, flip the tip around and tape it back on. Remember to tape the seam where you're cutting so it doesn't all unravel on you.

There were an awful lot of them but I finally got them all done.

Then, I figured I could do a first coat of paper mache on them all. So I go to make paste. I found a recipe online that said 5 parts water to 1 part flour and boil it for 3 mins. This seemed nice and economical on the flour.

The recipe was unclear on when the water should be boiling and when you should put the flour in, so I figured I'd boil it seperately and then add the flour. Then I had the genious idea of reserving some of the water to mix with the flour so it would be easier to get the lumps out. Individually these things make sense. Together, they are a recipe for... DUMPLINGS!
Honest. You can totally make dumplings that way.

I wanted paste, though, not dumplings. So my second try I put the flour in first and that worked well.

Yuuup.

Didn't get much sleep last night though, and it hit 12:30 and I still had things that needed doing, so I didn't manage a first coat on everything. Got everything but the shoulder spikes and fingernails, though. The important thing with the first coat is to make a better structure, a lot of my tape jobs were very loose.
