    Look really good Kev.
    I'm a great one for foraging in the garden :p Anyway I'm told by others that soaking in glycerine helps preserve such things. The first ferns I used have faded after about 18 months (although they still look good) What I currently do is paint them in a thinned PVA to seal in the freshness (!) and then paint with the usual acrylics and as the parachutists who jumped without his 'shute is heard to have said on the way down - "so far so good"
    Cheers

    Well I'll be darned. This could be a major breakthrough for you! Ground work on a bust. At least if you hold it upside down. :)

    I apologize for the attempt at humor. Been a long day...:rolleyes:

    Cheers,
    Ken

    I think you mean spray, you ain't got any hair.
    In all honesty you are doing a fab job mate, now let's see some paint.

    No idea what you are implying ...I will have you know I have a very wide selection of coiffure implements .....here's one in use ...... image.jpeg

    As for paint ...it's primed nicely in black now for a good run drying fully overnight

    Happy days

    Kevin good start and added to the bust, it is original and you do not usually see this type of warriors.
