    Hello.

    I started this a few years ago, I got stuck at the stage of painting hair on the chest and it was lying on a shelf and laughing at me.

    In total, most of the work is behind me, as of today:

    With the hand on, just for positioning the eyes...

    Thanks, Nap.

    I painted the eyes (there is still some flash left to add) and put on the magnifying glass. I decided to use gray resin parts because the transparent one turned yellow. I painted it silver, as a base for further work.

    Believe me, I tried ... But I found that I do not have the skills to paint "glass" yet - bad luck!

    I used transparent part, painted with carrebourg crimson (wash).
    There was such a problem with it that the resin did not harden, even after two years ... I decided not to give three lenses.
    Now at least the base of the lenses can be seen, a nicely carved flap:

    Actually, yes.
    I replaced it with a real piece of rock crystal, purchased at the esoteric store next to me. Unfortunately, there was nothing more interesting on offer in terms of shape and color.
    I can always change it.
    I also repainted the magnifier, I think it looks better now?
