    There is a series of high quality videos by Milan Dufek. Here is an example....


    In addition, if you can, try and find an SBS article by Phil Kessling that was in the WorldExpo special edition of Historical Miniatures (Toronto '96). Outstanding photography with detailed paint mixes

    Hi Francisco

    Check this one out too. Please make sure you watch part 1 AND 2 (part 1 for the acrylic base coat, part 2 for the actual oil painting of the face)

    I tried this method on my recent 54 mm figure for the first time, and I am quite happy with the results, although I do need a touch-up here and there. I will hopefully post my WIP here soon
