    The hand I have not done yet, because I want to try tomorrow, if my beloved "segment-painting" (the piecewise finished painting of individual segments of a figure) also works with oils ...

    Martin, can you explain to me how do you pin the various parts into a cork?,i have seen that so many times but i always wonder if people drill a hole or just stick them in.
    Thanks in advance

    Hi Daniel!

    Such a cork is very light and because of this easy and better to handle for me than others - heavier - holders. The hole I'll use later for a metal pin, when I mount the arm to the Torso...

    Cheers

    What can I say: My "segment-painting method" works with oil paints even far better than with acrylics! The new colors really start to make me more and more fun.

    The hand is finished ...:

    Today I first painted the missing sword knobl, stands out from the fist. First, high compliments to Markus, because he had not sculpted "any" knob, but exactly the template that I had given to him:

    Our Cossack wearing a saber type "Karabela". Originally developed by the Ottomans, the "Karabela" was optimized at theat time in Poland-Lithuania:
    Here is the original Ottoman version ...:

    [IMG]

    And here the Polish-Lithuanian version...:

    [IMG]
    There are many pictures of Cossacks, who were wearing "Karabela"-sabres, a very popular weapon at that times!

    [IMG]

    They kept the original name for this sabre - "Karabela" in Turkish means "Black Death"!

    But back to the saber knob:

    All "Karabelas" had a knob in the form of an eagle head ...:

    [IMG]

    [IMG]

    And like this Markus has also sculpted!

    The knob I have painted in black, for the few lights I have "Light Flesh" mixed it. And the silver nail, with the stylized eagle eye was on the knob - there were also versions with brass or golden nails - I have put the toothpick on each side a point with neat silver...:

    [IMG]

    As it has become ...:

    After that I have mounted the arm to the torso. And also here an even greater compliment to Markus: The fit is so perfect that no one milligram filler is needed ...:

    Today I have painted the Hand - but something came between first!

    When I wanted to paint the fingernails - I've just could not manage it. Thereupon I looked at the fist again and noticed that exactly where the nails of the index finger and the middle finger are two tiny crumblings under the magnifying glass - not visible to the naked eye!

    So I made (some of the hand was already painted) up to resculpt the two fingernails with "Milliput". Those things are smaller than pinheads and in some cases already painted hand that was a really challenge - but I like that!

    After the two nails were resculpted, I have painted them - still in soft condition - now it looks the way I had imagined.

    Today I HAD to artificial light for taking photos to help - it all seems to shine even more than it is the case in reality ...:

    Our Cossack is carrying a bottle in his hand in which is probably a "little water" - "Samogon", ie self-burned - is in it.

    And of course Markus has also not sculpted "any" bottle, but the one I had suggested to him: This bottle has a Russian template from the 17th century ...:

    Today I have the acrylic underpainting made - with a mixture of these colors ...:

    The bottle is finished painted "in oil"!

    I did that with these colors ...:

    [IMG]

    The base color consists of the two shades of brown, for the first shade I got the dark brown-share increased slightly more for the deep shadows came a little purple to it.

    As for the lights, just the Tan content was increased, then came some yellow ocher to - and finally a track white.

    Thus, it has become ...:
