This is my new project . A reconstruction based upon the work of Jean Leon Gerome . Called The Bath . The scene shows 2 female figures in an oriental bath house .In the background there is a water fountain as water source . I started using some parts from the Preiser academic figures range . A scale between 1/35 and 1/32. A large part was resculpted using Milliput . Details of hands and feet are very poor because of the plastic casting . The sitting figure is using a wooden construction because the used water has to run through. This construction is made from plastic rods. The standing figure is a negroid type . I used a head from the hornet range and both hands are scratch build. The clothing from the second figure is made with duro . Some extra details ( such as juwels )are made with copper wire, lead foil and putty . The walls are made from plastic card covered with milliput . The fountain is scratch and made from milliput and plastic card . In the completed version ,the water coming from the fountain will be made with vallejo artificial water. A cute detail are the special shoes in front of the scene .Because of the chemical products -used in those days- to remove unwanted hair these shoes where very high to avoid contact with the floor . I made them from milliput . The figures are ready to be painted and primed with grey primer. to be continued .
