This is my tutorial to make the balloon/bubble gum for my Vocaloid - Panda Hero Cosplay.
I first started by getting that plastic balloon shape which I bought at Michael’s. Then, I pretty much drew on it the design I wanted with a pencil. I used acrylic to give it all those different colors and I went over it again with at least 2 to 3 layers of paint. Finally, after all was dried, I used clear acrylic sealer to make it glow a little bit and it also helps to keep the paint from cracking up or coming off from the plastic.
I know this is really easy to make on your own. But still! My tutorials folder had to start with something “easy.”
Let me know if this actually helped or needed to be more accurate on my instructions.
Please give it a fav! and comment as much as you want.

Is there someway to make the green plastic part a little more matte?
Well, I used acrylic paint to do all the details on the plastic globe. You can use that matte color and paint it all. The problem is that, since you are painting over plastic, it tends to rip off really easy or the paint (depends on the brand of course) takes forever to cover plastic. That's why I used a spray sealer at the end so it will protect the paint a little bit more while I'm using the prop. Hope this actually helped. Let me know if you have any other questions. X3
