    Hi Guys,

    Following on from my review of this piece from Stu Hale's emporium of resin thought I would start this thread.

    I always put the work onto its final base and then wrap in cling film and in low tack paper tape(the model not me!!!!!)

    Once I had prepped the figure up I primed in black as is my chosen choice .......all work in Acrylics for me .

    Base coats were applied using mainly GW paints with some from the Army Painter.

    The face will be first ...base coat applied using mixes ...I did this several times as I wasn't happy ...inbetween this I also built up the beard a bit ....more work on the face ..now looks different !!!

    Then it was the waistcoat various reds were on the bench ...once I was happy with that .....deep breathing was the order of the day ...

    ...the lacework ..there is lot of it!...NMM for me using a Snakebite leather , black and white for the shadows and highs .......where we are is about 6 hours of holding my breath ...I don't work fast !.....still going to go back to this once the collar lace is done .

    ...time to stop swearing and realise I am enjoying this immensely

    More to follow(in between painting something less lacey!!!)....the plan is to have this finished for FW...honest!!!

    Very nice work. Always triggered to paint NMM but I don't have the guts to do it.

    Hi Guys,

    More of an update..... flesh finished now , cap band all done ...working on the facial hair with some more highs and then the cap top plus button

    It looks a lot better in the flesh...honest!!!

    To do collar lace . might revisit the lacework at the bottom of the waistcoat and do a bit more on the lace itself on the chest .

    Then its the coat ...and collar

    Then the article!!!!
