Finished the top one this weekend, and both are patiently waiting to be filled. A mix of hanji, washi, and lokta paper.
It's like a giant paper insect, took FOREVER to get this base done, and it's not anywhere close to perfect, but at least I can move onto another kind of hanji.
Looks more like what it's supposed to be, or maybe not at all. I learned that I will never become a very good shoemaker in this process. It's going to look strange, but hopefully I'll finish it before the year is up.
