Posted in Week 32 Constellation Painting 4/9/17 - 4/15/17

Second Intermission – Space Vehicle Icons

The painting did get a coat of sealant today. I hope I can paint over that, but I wasn’t satisfied with what the fixer did, which also didn’t surprise me. Once the sealant (which I made a special trip to the store to get, sigh) dried, I felt confident enough to put another layer of Mod Podge on.

There are still myriad decisions to make that I could use some tips on, including (but not limited to):

-paint, sharpie, or gems for the few constellations I’ll put on it?

-connect the dots on the constellations?

-which way up?

In the meantime, I’ve added to my space doodles in the bullet journal. Today I went with tech: vehicles.


The shuttle gave me some trouble, partly because it’s so close to the center binding, and mostly because it has some weird shapes and I didn’t leave enough room. Color-wise I can’t help but aim for a modicum of realism. I wanted the fins on the rocket to be red, but I had some lines that didn’t work on the center fin, so black they became. The satellite just wouldn’t have any, aside from a logo or flag image – if that – so I opted out.
