    Thanks Luca! Except for the head (Hornet) and bayonet and scabbard, he's all putty. :)

    Thanks fella's!

    Rob, you know, it's a constant battle with lint and there's nothing I can do about it!You may not notice but there is a bit of red lint in-bedded with every sculpt I've done so far since we moved here. I have no idea where it comes from...my carpet is GREEN! And I rarley wear clothing that has red in it. But as far as the sculpt being smooth, it's nothing but careful burnishing. I don't like to carve, file or sand- so to fix any imperfection, I try to "rub" it away with the toothpick.

    Ok Jason, so let me know where I must sign, can you send me a copy of your pact by email...? ;)

    It's impressive to see such even and perfect surface. I see your reply (the toothpick and so on), but it's impossible for me to obtain such result. Are you using a special brush, during the sculpt process, to modelling the sufrace ?

    I understand that!!!!

    thanks for the reply.

    Again, wonderful work!

    cheers

    Jason, wonderful work as always!
    Tis will become an outstanding diorama.

    I'm always surprised at MS's ability to pick up dirt, too.
    Even worse seems my tan FIMO, an oven baking putty I recently experimenting with.

    Calvin, unless we're doing a "live" sbs, it's hard to describe the technique. I'll try to post an sbs on how I do it.
    No, I only use a brush to help blend wet putty on to cured...I should try Mike Blanks technique of using hand lotion.

    Thanks Calvin, Rob, Manfred, Marc and Bill!!!

    Kenneth, it's going to be tough my friend. My boss say's I don't have the "whiskers" to take a July vacation. I may have to make a weekend "HE-MAN" trip to Boston or get a buddy of mine to take some pieces for me to display.

    Thanks again guy's!

    Very nice Jason. I like both your sculpting and painting style. It looks like you are starting to use some pre-cast boots. I assume you have cast them from your own masters?

    Barry,
    Yes, the boots are castings from a master I sculpted a few tears ago.

    We'll see Kenneth and I hope to see your work in the flesh as well.

    Here is figure number 2 finished. I started the ground work using static grass and jute twine- all painted in acrylics.

    Sorry for the fuzzy pic's.

    Looks great Jason!

    Love the sharp folds on the jacket of the guy to the right on the first pic.

    You're flyin' along Jason. The guy on the left has a great expression.

    It's interesting to me that you do the groundwork as you go along. Have you always done it this way?
  20. Pete_H New Member

    All I can say is "damn that's cool!!!" Good job, Jason. Also, interesting approach about doing the groundwork as you go along. I bet this makes the groundwork easier to handle in a multi-figure display.
