    I would prefer a careful drybrushing with a 50:50 mix from silver and "oily steel"!


    Cheers

    Hi Guys

    Been a little while on this but here's a verbal update with a couple of iffyvision pics

    Uniform all repainted ..again !!

    Shoulder epaulettes repainted for a bit more contrast to the uniform

    Fleshwork all done more shadow on the left of face

    I am not happy with the eyes as they are really small areas ...will probably paint as eyes closed !

    Violin all done ....fitted into place ....but...

    Had to break off his fingers to sit it properly ...Ouch !! ....now waiting for new fingers to set and then a repaint !

    Will do a bit more on violin colour now I can see it against the uniform more

    Thanks for looking in

    Happy benchtime

    Coming alive, Kev, I can hear the music..........nice !

    (By the way, just picked up on the graphite pencil thing used on the weapon. I've been using the stuff
    on metallics forever - sintered metal powder mixed into oils then a light burnish with graphite dust on
    a cotton bud - it comes in bottle form and is easier to use than scraping the point off a pencil. It could
    also be handy on the violin strings perhaps)

    Really coming along Nap, looking good but he can't play the violin with broken fingers.
    Uniform colour looks the right shade too.
