Way to think outside da box! Press on ...but don't forget your Mucha flat. 

I almost almost made progress this weekend.  I even sat down in front of it and planned out the rocks to add to the frame. But then I realized it would take too much sculpey and I needed to come up with a more economic plan.  Which I still have yet to discover.  I may do some of it in cork and add sculpey to it.  I have to finish it though because I want to take it to world expo in july.

 

Thanks everyone!!!  I like going through the steps.  It helps me as well because I notice things I can change.

Yay!  You're going to World Expo too!?!?  Then you have to make sure it's ready in time so I can see it! ::):

Cork will survive the Sculpey baking process?  That's good to know!  I've been planning to do some polymer clay modelling, and thought about using different armatures & filler from wire and wadded aluminum foil.  Would carved pine or balsa scraps work, I wonder?

When I baked some sculpy on a pine base, the sap started to ooze out the sides....

Just a heads up...

oh- that's not what I meant and I'm not sure what would happen if I baked the cork...  I meant I would remove the cork and bake the bits.  I just wanted to try to cut down on the amount of sculpey I used!

Ah, well.  I may still experiment with balsa scraps encased in the Sculpey, or form heavy aluminum foil around a balsa wood framework, sculpt the model, then pull the Sculpey and aluminum foil from the balsa framework just before baking.

      Time to paint another bust.
      This one is from El Greco 1:12th scale and comes in a nice tin.
       
      A depiction of a seasoned Crusader.
      I will paint him as a Knight Hospitaller instead of the often seen Knight Templars.
       
      This means mine will have a Black Cape, A Red Surcoat and a White Cross.

      This is an awesome sculpted bust by Creepytables Miniatures.
      I painted her in a DIas de Muertos style with a Diamond Back Rattlesnake.
      Did the skulls on the plinth as sugarskulls/luchador style skulls

      I've had plans to paint this for a long time, wanted to get it done before the bones 4 dark elf throne piece overshadows it.

      So, I'm back. And I decided I needed to paint lots of skin. Recently watched the painting DVDs from Dark Sword, specifically the Marike ones. So I'm going to be trying to practice glazing.
       
      Note: I know this bust won't be perfect. But this is me attempting to improve, so all advice and comments are appreciated!
       
      Moving on, here is the bust in question, the beautiful maiden bust from Reapercon 2018. 

       
      And here is my progress this far:

       
      So, I wanted to post this because it is relevant to the blending I'm doing. This is from the class I took from @Corporea last reapercon, with some blending with glazes attempted. 
       
      I hadn't got this right at the con, and would love for that progress to be checked on here! I'm going for high contrast, but not as high as here, so I thought this would be a better way to get some judgement on blending.

      I seem to be losing a lot of contrast in the process, and would like some advice on what I might be doing wrong.

      So one of my friends who plays dnd with me painted this one yesterday to be used as his pc in our campaign. He actually hasn't painted any minis for a few years so this one was a comeback for him . I really like how it turned out!
