    If you are reworking your teeth then let putty go hard!

    I used a Lt gray with a wash of burnt umber followed by diluted ivory on edges ..no pure white !

    A slight wash of paynes gray is another option

    Unless your cyclist is sponsored by a toothpaste company no teeth are sparkling white ! ..apart from mine in the morning ..lol

    Currently reworking the hair on Roger ..fitted the head and just didn't look right for some blooming reason ...the air is very blue at the moment ..currently on 3 Valium a minute!

    Very many thanks Kev. I will try to it on before we shoot off.
    That strange colour change on the assembly has caught me out a good number of times. A right sickener when you spend a lot of time thinking you have it spot on.
    Chin up and press on Mate

    Hi Keith

    For me it's best not to overwork the teeth ..unless it's a catwalk model!

    Fear not all is well just looked at it he will now have a fuller head of hair !

    Oh the joys and hopes of modelling ..lol

    Thanks for looking in

    Mmm I was surprised that I had not seen the Nap final twist in tail and here it is.
    I bet that had another glance at those Wee Kiltless Laddies and went into one with the putty.
    Love what it looked like before the beard. I am sure that if you think extra facial additions are needed it will only enhance the piece Kev.
    Enjoy

    Great work going on here Nap, although not my era, I like the alterations you are doing (something i try and do myself, not so easy on a bust) and the paintwork is great.

    Wow Nap,
    I am speechless, impressed, drunken in details - like the veins, the blade of the knife and so on......

    Hi Nap

    Well, it definitely feels perfect to me. I'm not a painter, I can not evaluate the depth of your technique, I always judge just likes-do not like it. And in this case, I really like it. Excellent result seriously.

    Cheers Borek :)

    Got one, Coming from a certain bearded gentleman in a red suit, so will be referring to this quite a bit. What green did you use a base ?
