Awww maaann I have just been WAITING for you to do a Galashy!! She looks beautiful!

May I ask what you use for spacers? I usually use chunks of foam core or foam tape, but I'm looking for something a little.... better.

Yay I'm glad you like her ^_^

For spacing I use American Crafts Adhesive Tabs [link]

They space well and their adhesive is super strong.

Man.. I have looked into things like that, but they tend to be a bit pricey. I got a HUGE roll of foam tape from eBay a few years ago for $20, probably the best money I have ever spent. It is super sticky, I just wish it were a bit thicker.

Thanks for the tip! Now I'm gonna kick your paper crating butt. No I won't, that isn't the pony way. <3

haha bring it on ;)

yeah ive seen those foam rolls, they are a far more economical option but it takes a lot more time to build with them. Given you have to peel, cut, and stack a lot more often. I can usually get 3-4 shadowboxes built off of one pack of tabs and they stack easily enough to give a lot of depth.

I used to work with the dots, until I illustrated a book and made each spread about three feet wide. At that point I had to upgrade to the large roll. I really miss the dots for detail work though, it's tough to cut a strip down small enough.

Hey, do you sell/travel to cons? Hoping to see you at Everfree!

wow, I can't imagine the dots that would get burned up on a three foot spread. The largest shadowbox I've built at this point was a 16" x 20"

We (my wife and I) were thinking about going to EFNW, but decided that Bronycon is going to be easier for us to get to. It will be our first time selling at a convention so we have a lot to learn before August.

I do take commissions online as well, in fact most of my work has been commission based up to this point.

I knew you did commissions, and you are doing awfully well for yourself. You're building a great name, your work is going to be in demand and will sell out super fast if you get a table at cons. A little bummed you won't be at EFNW, but maybe I'll corner the market up here. ;)

I'm trying to work out my own pony papercrafts that won't interfere with yours. Us papercrafters are a rare breed, don't wanna step on any toes!

Thank you :hug:

I'm not sure exactly WHAT will happen at the cons, but my wife and I are cautiously optimistic.

I'd love to see what you come up with for pony papercrafts. All of your other work is so beautiful =D
