    Hi all,
    After bit of an interlude, Thomas has gone through bit of a repaint the face and beard was painted in artist oils bit old school but a chance to work with paints from New Zealand, France, Germany, Holland and England.
    Everyone of them has a quality pigment and wonderful to use.
    It’s been an interesting journey of research, book purchases sculpting and painting to achieve an end result.
    Ultimately this bust will be available
    Thanks for following this journey.
    Best regards
    Paul

    Hi all,
    and thanks for your comments and support throughout this SBS of project “Thomas “.
    I had one little adjustment to make after an ex-Royal Naval friend pointed out that the white ribbon at the front of the coller should be black unless attending a wedding.
    Also the jacket can be white other than blue.
    At a later date i may paint the alternative?
    If anyone is interested in pre-ordering this bust contact paulblaber63@outlook.com
    As it’s not on the website yet.
    Best regards
