I went back inside á la herpy derp and could start working. I took with me two rolls because I wasn't sure which width I preferred. I ended up using the wider one.

|Cut out a second layer of the same size (lol Masamune secretly likes Sweden...)|
|I started painting 'em black... dries so slow...|
|FUCK YEAH HAIR DRYER!!1|
