Changing a Cossack-Bust

    Today last sculpting-step:
    Completely in the end the groove must still disappear which was determined at the back of the bust originally for the admission of the gun...:


    Because at this point, actually, the gun shaft should lie close, the drapery is coined there only very rudimentary.

    I have not only added the groove, but immediately still a better drapery made …:


    Well! Now after nearly two months of sculpting-fun the little one is ready for undercoating!

    I have followed with interest this transition of your cossack, Martin.
    Think you have learned a lot of extra things for coming works.

    :) I would be honoured when you would alter a buste of mine into a cossack :)

    best wishes,

    I thank You very much, Réne! This pleases me really!

    Today it is undercoating.

    Besides, I wanted to try out sometimes something new …:

    Up to now I have always taken this priming for cars which has turned out extremely reliable colour bearer with regard to warmth, cold, humidity and dryness …:


    Small disadvantage: The stuff does not dry completely weakly on and inclines on account of his consistency, moreover to affect small and smallest details …:


    Up to now I have accepted this disadvantage, but I wanted to try out this spot another priming.

    I have asked in different forums and have called some mates.

    Finally, so I have decided on this grey priming …:


    No matter how can be painted of this stuff later, I am most inspired by the "Picture" which "generates" it!

    The consistency is up much more finely than with my old priming and the stuff dries absolutely weakly – the smallest details come to the fore so again instead of disappearing!

    The "Picture" which I see now before myself inspires me properly!

    The self-sculpted changes come along harmoniously to the quite existing details of the bust, the thing looks really "round"!

    Nice - I have not come along a lot of work free of charge …:




    Here once again the list of the things changed in the course of the past four weeks:

    - A shoulder piece in the size to the other conformed (mistake of the original bust);
    - Rank badges changed (Uriadnik instead of Prikanznij, three instead of one stripe);
    - Regimental name (6th regiment of the Orenburgski Cossack's army = „6. O.“) on the shoulder pieces added;
    - Gun and gun strap completely remotely;
    - Saber straps together with locking buckle new made;
    - Button strip of the "Gymnastiorka" (field blouse) anew made;
    - Drapery of the Gymnastiorka at several places changed;
    - The second order made;
    - Gun cord from cable cores made and added.



    And then there is still the new sculpted head, the primer also stands very well …:





    Now so my figure year 2010 ends with this meanwhile very nice result.

    Then in the new year it is painted and I also hope here for many improving tips.


    Advice for everybody who would like to know how it goes on:

    This sbs will be continued in the new year at the sub-forum "Painting"!

    I hope, we will see us again, there!

    Now, however, I wish You all one a happy new year 2011. May all your wishes and hopes may come true!

    polyphemus and napoleonpeart like this.

    Looks really good Martin, especially when all the work you have done is covered in grey.
