    It's all possible. But, why not use a silver felt tip or pen. They come in other colours of metal too these days. I am assuming you are looking for better control than a brush. There are a range of metallic pencils, I think 'Caran D'arche but not sure of spelling, that are said to have good adhesion and light fastness and come in several metallic colours.

    Here as promised is the final update to this SBS. I have assembled and then re-worked and finalised this great bust. I set out to give him a tired look rather than 'After the Battle', with areas of wear to the cloak and shield, along with an overall well lived in skin.
    I hope you like him and have enjoyed the journey to completion as much as I have. It has been great fun to do and, if a few have gained some insight into a different way with oils, then that really makes it worthwhile.
    Thanks to all the members that have taken part in this SBS for your support and encouragement.

    I am sorry the pics are not great, but my camera is not playing fair!

    Ta-Dah!.... The Phoenix has risen!.. Absolutely brilliant!.. .I see you have sneaked in some older looking Tattoo's, with faded blue!.. very clever and realistic!.. as most would run with black., its all these little bits of detail and thought, that make a huge amount of difference. The five 0'Clock shadow, is very subtle, and fits the drawn/weary look very well. I have already said, that the worn leather/hide bodice, is a lovely piece of painting.

    Ron!.. Thank you very much for taking time out, to do this for us, it, is/was very much appreciated. and has given me at least! so many ideas and realisations! on techniques and methods, and the use of them. That I have gone a bit, Bust! mad. So I will stop buying, and now get to painting my first!..(y)... However you may get a little fed-up, of me asking questions:LOL:

    Hi Mark, and thanks for compliments on tats etc. It was a pleasure to do and glad members got something out of it. Feel free to ask for any help mate. When you get round to painting and not buying, give it a go. One of the benefits of this technique is that a lot more time is spent on layers of fine colour rather than fine detail, which may suit you better.

    Regards

    Hi Ron
    Not only a bust well done, but a huge kudos for sharing your knowledge and skill with us. I have been watching it silently for a while.

    I would like to make a suggestion for Gordy and administrators if they would kindly consider it:

    1. Tutorials like this should be pinned on top of the forum section or perhaps even taken into some " Master's Treasure Vault" section or whatever you may want to call it. Zernina's recent pattern tutorial is another instant candidate I'd like to see there.

    2 If they are selected to go there- it would be usefull to trim them down to essential information and leave out all 10 pages of enthusiastic comments of adoration (completely deserved, dont get me wrong and full respect to people who leave them) - that will make it very easy to follow, instead of trailing through page after page of comments.

    Then it may be usefull to get the author to edit the final version of it, to amalgamate all other casual advice that they shared along the way or what others contributed.

    I hope this will make a gem like this easily availiable to everyone and thread will not slip into oblivion of old threads.

    Once again, Ron, thank you
