    Thanks. I’m using the Andrea Green set for the greens. Specifically, I’m using the first shadow shade as my base. Period portraits of Lasalle show his pelisse as being a very dark green shade.

    I will have to get this set, I have several 95th Rifles figures in the queue. Nice work so far.

    I really like these Andrea sets. That said, I like the Vallejo Bronze Green as a good color for the Rifles.

    Attached is a photo of an officer’s jacket I took in the Museum in Waterloo in 2016. When I took the photo I checked it against the jacket and it IS this colour. Hope it helps.

    Apologies for the copies. I wasn’t sure the photo uploaded properly. Ho-hum.

    Cracking start to this bust Kurt. Lovely flesh work and the pelisse looks as though it’s coming on really nicely. It would be great to see a step by step re your techniques for the lace-something that you always carry off so well on your figures.

    Thanks, Neal. That’s very kind of you to say.

    I’d never really given any thought to doing a SBS, as I still feel like my approach to painting lace is still very much a work in progress. Having the right colors is a big part of it, and I’m still playing with that as well.

    More progress on Lasalle. This is clearly a digital sculpt, which has its pros and cons. The very fine loops of lace are well defined, but I don’t like the way the large loops are defined and cast. Still much to do. 12E2DA05-4ABC-4F45-BCF9-3B2A4929A146.jpeg

    Thanks, Bill! That is most appreciated. These Alexandros busts are beautifully done, very cleanly cast, and a joy to paint.

    We are doing well, thank you. Glad to hear that you are too.

    Refining some of the details today before moving around to the sides and back. The medals and buttons will get highlights with gold printers ink. 5DF6CED5-7B97-49FC-9A3A-CB8A3171DB95.jpeg C1E3D1CA-2032-4C26-896A-C18C00B7009D.jpeg
