    Patina!.........

    i have started layering burnt umber over the metallics. once i have it to the level i want and its well dried i'm going to layer some more thin metallics over it and then add a final layer of very very thin burnt umber/ger.cam.black brown.... :)

    Fine job so far on the metals and im intigued by how the PATINA will work out, great idea and very relevent for metals.

    Is there a wingnut missing from the front chest part of the helmt ?

    Is it me or does he look a bit like Robert Di Nero?

    Either way Mark, he's coming along very nicely. I'd like to see a bit more metallic sheen on the copper and brass sections of the helmet. US Navy divers would polish their diving gear to within an inch of its life when it was not being used.

    Carl ... Cheers! :)

    Tony ... thank you, agree about a slightly more " polished " look to the metals :)

    Marcel .... thanks! :) AV Brass and Copper are the main colours, some GW Burnished gold in the mixes :)

    Ken ... Again thanks :)



    Well i keep plugging away at this and the end is getting very close now. the suit and outer neck ring i have tried for a slightly newer look. the helmets would i imagine be almost indestructable! the suits not.

    i'm working on the pipes and such now! .... :)

    Some of the best metalics I've seen. How did you get the aged look on the cast iron tap?
    Very realistic,

    Superb work, Mark!
    I think a facial expression is wonderful in particular.
    The expression of a texture of clothes is also very beautiful.
    I congratulate completion.

    Wow what a difference adding the pipework makes to this bust, very impressive metal work mate and this bust really tests the metal works with all the various metal used, great job on all of them.
