Using a pool noodle is a really good idea for this! Looking good =)

I will never not learn to use spray paint outside. (Posted 2nd February 2014)

Third time I've told myself not to do it and DAMN FEY YOU DUMB! The house smells foul so I have to have the windows open in winter and I'm burning candles to help the smell fade xD

The bow is all ready for painting when the spray primer is dry...

Re-covered pretty much the entire bow with tape again, and it feels a LOT stronger now :)
Also started a new thing on it; putting the white paint on it already and instead of just water it's a thick watery glue that I'm using at the same time with it.
It's working really well so far, so I'm gonna keep at this for a few layers until I can start shading in the blues too :)

I was impatient so I tried to prime the bow with a glue coat...all the tape lost it's stickiness and started to peel :| Gonna have to re-coat it now.

SUDDENLY I HAVE A BOW! (Posted 28th January 2014)

I KID YOU NOT! I was just messing around with all my craft stuff and I found a pool noodle and carved it into Ashe's bow and covered it with masking tape...all in under 2 hours!!! o_o

I will prime the surface tomorrow when it's light out again and hopefully it won't rain. :>
