    Vallejo paints. Translucent washes. Any sentence consisting of these two terms are enough to restore my faith in figure painting.

    Superb flesh painting! Sincere congrats.

    Darren, Claudio, Marcel and Michael thanks for your kind words

    Michael I’m glad you like the flesh tones, I have been trying to paint the Calvin Tan method for about 8 month now and it seem to be coming together but I’m no expert !!!
    Practice practice n more practice

    Sam, again my compliments! Could you share your mix for the braces and belt. I am trying to paint the same colour on my WWI bust.


    Thanks,

    Hi Gary, sure no probs.
    I use ‘Life Colour’ paints - Base colour HBT light shade 902 then the texture is khaki north Africa 030 watered down and applied with a damp brush so it is translucent ish. Then shade and shadows are watered down dark brown wash. Again this is applied with a damp brush to control the flow and building it up in deeper folds.
    Hope this helps.
