Frequency asked questions about this tutorial's topic

(Q) The last step in making the galaxies is to coat them with undiluted Elmer’s glue. I did this and it made them glow more dimly. Do I really have to coat the painted galaxies in the Elmer’s glue?


(A) No, coating the galaxies in glue is not required. The final glue coating is only done to give the galaxies an artistically pleasing diffuse look. It does, as you correctly point out, dim their glow slightly. So if brightness is more important than the diffuse look for your galaxies, skip the glue coating.
