Hiya! I don't wanna bother you but I just wanted some tips about the flug mask. Like, how did you go about getting the paper look? Because it looks?? So good??

Hello! Don’t worry, you’re not bothering me at all! Here’s a little step-by-step of how I made the mask^^

Okay, so the ‘bag’ is actually a cardboard box. This way the mask is stronger and won’t break as easily. The box was a little too big so I cut it down, hence the tape xD

Also! If you’re gonna use a cardboard box, I recommend making a head-rest inside. The box won’t move when you move your head, and it’ll move around a lot when you don’t want it to D: I used a strip of cardboard, fitted it round the top of my head, then stuck it down with masking tape!

Then we covered it with brown package paper and folded it at the edges, kinda like origami, to give it that paper bag look - this part was done by @omnomnomducks, but I think if you Google ‘paper bag folding’ or something you should find how to do it :> You could cut out a sheet of paper for each side, but…meh, I think this way looks better and more bag-like.

then we cut some triangles out the bottom of the bag, and stuck the paper down using double sided tape.

then the goggles! I cut out some holes in the mask with scissors (cause, y’know, gotta see out of it somehow xD) The grey part is made of card, and the black part is made from an old pair of tights/pantyhose/whatever you wanna call them - they’re see-through, but no one can see into them :D There’s tons of materials you could use instead if you prefer, like chiffon or mesh fabric…

(I actually made the holes a little bigger later on - as long as the holes are under the ‘goggles’, no one will see them!)

Then the goggles were stuck down using PVA glue, and I went round the goggles and added eyebrows with a Sharpie for a more cartoony look :D The white dots were done using fabric paint. Also on the sides and back of the mask, I used long strips of grey card on each side so it looks like goggles go all the way around my head^^

I hope this helps! ~

Hey there! Been a long time ArtRage user that only recently switched to Medibang (thanks to my friends here recommending it,) and already I am loving the program! I just have one question, how do I do metallic paint or at least turn it shiny?

Hi overwatchphoenixoc,

Thank you for using our program.

A tutorial that might help with this question can be found here:
https://medibangpaint.com/en/use/2016/05/rykys-spell-effect-tutorial/

While this one is for spells, the idea of layering your colors from the darkest in the background, to lighter colors in front such as gold, silver, white etc can produce the metallic effect that you’re looking for!

CHEAP Black to Red DIY Ombre Tights Tutorial In Under 1 Hour!

I needed ombre tights for RWBY’s Ruby Rose and I didn’t wanna go online and buy like a freaking $39 tights… Sooo here’s a tutorial for tights that was under $10 :) And the best thing, besides how cheap it is, is that you can do it in any color you want :D 

Materials:

  • 1 pair of white tights (got mine at Target for $5)
  • 1 box of 8oz scarlet red RIT dye powder
  • 1 box of 8oz black RIT dye powder 
  • (both of the dyes were from Michaels with a 50% off coupon so it was about $2.50 for BOTH)
  • rubber gloves
  • something to stir your tights with that you don’t care about like wooden chopsticks, plastic knife, etc.
  • bucket & bathtub OR sink (depends on how messy you’re allowed to be cause the dye WILL stain if you don’t do anything about it)
  • cleaning supplies like Clorox bleach or something for your tub/sink (honestly I don’t care who you are, CLEAN UP after yourself… No one wants to walk into a restroom where the shower/sink is all colored up…)

Procedure:

  1. Try to follow the directions on the RIT dye box as much as possible if you can. First wet your tights with hot water. Keep that to the side for now.
  2. I filled my bucket with hot water up to about where my tights could float freely pretty well. Then I was lazy and didn’t want to figure out how much dye to put in, so I just poured in the whole red packet in LOL. Also keep in mind to put your bucket in the bathtub, cause dye could splash around.***
  3. I put my tights in and stirred that sucker for 10 minutes straight. After 10 minutes were up I rinsed my tights with hot water gradually making it cold water until the water ran mostly clean.
  4. Now for the ombre part. Mark off where you want your ombre to start by tying a knot. 
  5. Clean your bucket and repeat steps 1-2 with your other color.
  6. Dunk your tights in to a little bit under where your knot is. Now this the tricky part to explain. while your hold your tights in one hand keep dunking your tights in and out (pics 3-4) so that the dye doesn’t stay in one place the whole time. With your other hand gently squeeze out the dye from under your knot, so once again the dye doesn’t just settle there. Do this whole process for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes were up rinse like how you did last time.
  7. Let them dry :)

I can’t tell you how this will wash in the washing machine cause I haven’t tried it myself. To be honest I might just hand wash them though to be safe and so the colors don’t get too crazy. 

Note: ***Start with the lighter color, the darker color over the lighter color will make it easier to color as well. If you’re doing something where the hues are similar or going from white to a color, I would suggest you dunk your first color a little above where the second color would go (so you start from step 6 and repeat for second color) 

I hope that was comprehensible :x If not just send an ask and I’ll be glad to help :D
