Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

※ Apron: protect your pimp gear. Stains from cel paint linger forever!
※ Latex Gloves: prevents naturally occurring oils and fingerprints from ruining cels.
※ Dropper: cel paint tends to lose its moisture rather quickly through evaporation so a dropper is essential for reintroducing water into the mixture in small doses.
※ Tracing Paper: used when creating a clean copy from the original rough draft.
※ Other Equipment: 2 pens with varying colors, rag, tissue, & water container
This concludes the section focusing on the materials used when creating anime cels. Starting from the next tutorial, we will begin our quest of conquering the elaborate production phase!
