    Hi to All.......

    This must be my craziest venture to date.......ok I might have repainted some of my figures before but that sword kept cutting my fingers & it just drove me nuts......

    Some might ask me why I bothered to do what I did (repainted all the previous leather covered metal parts in metal)?

    Gary Gates and Dr.Mike Thomas of MedRom Forum expertly pointed out that I was not Historically correct in painting said items in leather, so I could never live with the guilt of letting this pass me by, I just rolled up my sleeves and did it!

    It was not easy by any means because as I said before I was faced with a very awkward situation now the whole figure was on the base!! But either thru the slump I hit ealier on or thru sheer craziness I somehow managed a decent touch up!!

    To get the bronzed silver effect I base coated with Lifecolor's chain metal (acrylic).....then I pasted with W&N Burnt Umber oil and removed the excess......Highlights were applied with Silver Printers Ink + dab of Burnt Umber........

    Hope this satisfies any questions and please forgive me for staying away from the pc........It's just a slump that hits everyone of us from time to time!!

    I've started on a few projects for Euro '07 and will be posting again soon!

    Regards to all,

    Ray

    Ray,

    Very impressive, since you had to redo the leathers and turn them to metals. Very difficult work, and expertly done.

    Cheers and great job,
