    I haven't finished painting bear skin, since I have no idea how ancient romans did the eyeballs of the bear when they make it stuffed. Should I paint it all black or just paint standard eyeballs...haven't decided it yet.
    I'd like to know If anyone have info or opinion on the bear eyes.

    As always, any comments are welcomed.

    Great work Kaz. This bust is such a great piece. I have it sitting at my bench right now. I am slowly filling up the air bubble holes with putty on the face. It is my second copy, a replacement actually. The first one was in much worse qulity. How is your quality? I can see some holes on the scarf, but the face looks good.

    Good work Kaz.
    I believe the Romans changed the eyeballs with glass balls. I think they should be black.

    Piotrec, Aveleira, Ken, Marc, and Carl, thanks a lot for your compliments, everyone!
    Piotrec, Yes I realized it after I painted eyes. :) so, I washed it out with alcohol and fixed holes with diluted Tamiya putty.

    Marc, that's a great info, thanks!

    You shouldn't be getting airholes in resin castings nowadays although an easy way i use to fill them in is to pick out the pigment at the bottom of a Humbrol enamel tin and fill them in with this.I usually use Matt White and it's a lot easier than using putty.I use this on the bare resin and then prime the figure.
