and to get the coloring version,

I took the image, color spit in in cmyk,
then took the black version and reversed the colors,
then dumped white paint on the grey telling the software to loose match the color by a factor of 22,
then darkened what was left

this post is taking longer to write than to do the procedure.

Thank you!
I have been working with PSP a few years ago, converting RGB graphics to CMYK when preparing some documents for professional printing.

I am using GIMP. I will download a plug-in to do this and experiment a bit.

Bonding (gluing) with cling film (food wrap). IT WORKS!

I first laminated two layers of 65lb paper, then I laminated that to a manila
envelope. That should be thick enough so when I glue that to corrugated
cardboard I won't get any warping from the white glue. I am expecting my
moon to be at least 6mm thick, and I have printed yellow paper to fill the 6
mil thickness to make the moon look like a solid piece. I have also done some
color work on one of paperpino's celestial globes, and plan to use that as an
"awning" over the courtyard with embedded LED lighting so the whole thing
acts like a night light. paperpino's globe will be printed put together as a half
dome, with print on both sides, actually I just printed the northern hemisphere
at 101% and fit the 100% sized southern hemisphere on the inside to make a
dome like at grand central station. this way I can run the wiring for the leds
between the two layers so no wires show.







Ok, so back from vacation and the build went exactly as planned. Still
working on the lighting kit, the led's are so powerful the entire canopy glows,
so I'll have to put a sheet of black paper in the middle of the top half and
bottom half to stop the light bleeding through and showing the internal
structure. When I hang it from the two wires, it is not straight up and down,
but I will add some pennies to the inside of the "B" structure to balance that
out. the moon itself is rock solid, no flex what-so-ever.

I just saw that in GIMP, Threshold is probably going to be a fairly easy alternative. It looks like you will need to do parts individually this way, though. If you do the full page, getting one part to look correct, messes up all the others. I plan on playing with this tonight

well she is done. the wire is a bit heavy (22 gauge,) so I'm gonna replace it with some motor winding wire (30 gauge) shortly. I also added a "comet" bar to keep the wires separated. the model was tipped to its side when I first strung it, so I added washers to the inside of the "B" section on one side until it was balanced.

That's lovely! Is great to see how this model can be enhanced.

That's purty.

Turned out good. Nice play in placing the washers to balance it.
