I cleaned some mold lines.

From the look of it the hat needs some work with putty, will attend to that later.

 

I have decided the Skulls on the base will be sugarskulls.

The snake is a Western Diamondback Rattlesnake.

La Charra will get some facepaint in the Dia de Muertos style.

 

I'm not sure about her hair yet.

Blackish Blue?

Greenish?

Red/purple?

 

Need to think about it, any suggestions welcome.

 

I haven't decided about the patterns of her facepaint yet, there are a lot great ideas out there.

 

Here are some inspirational pics.

@SamuraiJack thank you!

I was thinking about a black hat with silver ornaments, but that last pic is a great idea as well.

I need to think about it, maybe a purple hat will work better with dark hair.

Or a black hat with green or purple hair?

Decisions decisions.

 

The hat has mold lines and I think I need to use a dremel to get it smooth again.

2nd pic is from the website...not my mini.

First one is, but the lines are on the visible underside of the hat.

 

Will attend to it soon.

 

People, DO post inspirational pics like this.

I used sugarskulls on my Tanith's Altar piece.

I will do that with the ones on the plinth as well..had some practice ...

Does your hat have the mold line all the way around the bottom?  if so, email them and send them a picture.  they sent me a new hat because they re-worked their molding process to fix that issue

I bought it months ago.

I think I can fix it.

 

I send them an email just in case.

Maybe they will still help out

While I wait for the new hat, more inspirational pics.

 

I can already see it will be difficult to pick a facepaint.

So many cool ones.

Primed her white.

 

The new hat will be shipped on Monday, might take a few days to arrive.

I have primed the old hat grey.

I will use it for practice to see if I want the hat to be black /silver or Purple/ gold or maybe something else.

So I will paint parts of the old hat to see what I like best.

The good people of Creepytables Miniatures send me the new hat.

 

Looks way better, just a small line which can be fixed instead of the chunks and lines of the first batch.

      This is Vilthiss Snake Champion from Mierce's Banelords Range.
      Resin.
      Base is made with a Greenstuffworld Rollerpin some skulls and a few of Ristul's Fantasy Market's resin bugs.
       
      After taking the pics I noticed a little too much purple gums on the upper side of the teeth, it's fixed.
       
      He's part of my Lost World Project which you can find here:

      This guy has some belts and buckles, If I didn't know better I would suspect it was a Klocke sculpt..
       
       
      NEW PICS ADDED
       
      Fixed the teeth and added a reflection dot.
      First 5 pics are the new ones.

      Some pretty good deals in the early bird specials:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/399883540/orc-warband-collectors-by-yedharo-and-gt-studio-cr
       
      Offering 30mm, 70mm, Busts and 1/10 () Scale figures.  Something for everyone!  
       
      I got the early bird 4 bust deal.  FWIW I have some of their earlier figures and they've been very good quality.

      Did a little painting today to calm my nerves before the con.  Experimented with several brands of metallic paint.  Photos are not great, but you get the idea.

      This is the resin bust for the upcoming hair and makeup class at ReaperCon. It's a bit under two inches tall. Standard MSP paints for the hair and flowers. The skin tones are the new Bones paints - Ruddy to Pale Flesh.
