Hi Everyone, I've complete my first two repaints. They serve as a progress marker, and to replace the originals which I sold.
I feel like I'm finally getting some good looking skin tones, that I'm happy with, unfortunately the matte varnish seems to kill some of the shading.
These pics were taken before the varnish was applied. I painted both of them with color schemes to match the originals.
Would doing a gloss varnish, then a matte coat help preserve some of the shading?
Also my photography has gotten better, although it still could use some improvement. And I'm slowly working on doing better on the basing.
The originals had no basing. I'm think I'm going to buy a leaf punch and some cork. Is paper or real leaves recommended for making the miniature leaves?
Thanks all, hope you enjoy the pics.
