    Thanks, very kind of you...(y)

    Pedro and Keith,

    Thank you. The texture was a result of no sanding the metal + very thin primer (I put the can on the hot water for a few minutes) and a misture de acrylic paint from vallejo.

    Salut Marquis,

    Merci encore pour l'intérêt. For the belts I used Ivory & Silvergrey, In fact I never really use pure white, also none of the colors, beside the face, have received lights and shadows.

    Au plaisir.

    Rodrigo what does putting the primer in the hot water do and can you explain what a misture de acrylic is

    putting the primer can in hot water for few minutes and then shake it for 30 seconds help the primer to adhere better to the figure, i also use some hot hair dryer into the figure to warm it up, that helps the primer to stick to the figure and cure fster.
