    Just started this excellent bust sculpted by Offo.

    First time using Life Colour paints which are slightly satin.

    I will now try and use glazes and inks to bring more contrasts and colour variations and hopefully smooth out transitions.

    See what you think.

    Hi Monty, thanks mate.

    I used the life colour flesh set but just used the base and lights. They're really good to work with. I used scale 75 arabic shadow, blue, a dark brown and inks also.

    Some more work done on the face.
    The herring bone pattern doesn't work great but I gave it a go just to try it.

    I found the face came together more after applying the inks.
