This is the second mini-comic I have made. Again I was sleep deprived and had an insanely small amount of time to make it. It has a HUGE typo in it, but I have learned to live with the imperfection. I thought about editing it before I posted it on the internet, but, I blogged about how I noticed the flaws of my work after I had rushed to draw it, copy it, assemble it, and deliver an edition to a comic book store. I had to be ok with the mistake and just focus on the fact that people were reading it anyway.
One of the biggest tips I can give you is to stand ready with a spatula (I actually use a pie server because my spatula has slots in it) so that you can flatten any of them that refuse to lay flat immediately after they come out of the oven. You don't want to over bake them! It should take less than two minutes. I bake them at 350 instead of 325 like the package says because I find that they flatten out more and shrink more evenly at a higher temp. Baking them takes your undevided attention, I think a lot of people make mistakes when they pop them in and then get distracted. You have to be able to pull them out at any second just incase you have to pull them apart or something.
As far as coloring goes, I use prisma color pencils, they lay on very creamy and cover well, I find that the colors blend and become more vibrant during the baking process because the pencil melts very evenly and adheres well to the surface of the plastic. Their are some colors that become translucent when heated, some examples are lighter pinks and neon colors. Well, that;s all I can think of for right now, but feel free to message me if you have any questions.
