Getting the base ready

On for the base! This is some car repairing mastic, quite smelly stuff that I fluidified with Acetone. You can't see much as the white sort of crushes the contrasts but the ground is designed so that it looks like a mud pool with plenty of rills coming out from the vehicle.
Problem: it already bent the plastic base I used -I know it was a quite stupid move from me to use a simple plasticard base for such an aggressive product to use on top, but well.. I feel pretty tired these days

Painting the vehicle

So I have a friend who tells me "you should put pictures with the material you actually use", oh well nothing fancy, no Mig Interactive stuff. I'd even say that even though I have the 2/3 of the Mig pigments collections, the 2 that I use the most are Windsor and Newton's, namely "VanDyke Brown" and "Burnt Sienna" which speaks more to me than "Ghoulish red" or "Chaos Black"
oops, that was games Workshop

Products heads up

Pebeo's outliner (Cernes relief)

I was sent that Pebeo Cernes Relief product some time agio and liked it straight away. Its fine tip allows me to make joints between the stuff i embbed in water and the stuff itself like my graves here.

It dries just like regular glossy Acrylic gel that you can find in art shops or Valejo's Water Effect (which is exactly the same stuff)

Flex Pad on horse sculpting

The reason I use those flex-pad instead of other solutions is seen here: I have been owning the same since 4 years and even though mine are in bad shape they still work alright. I love the "blade tip" which allows to sand in the crevices

Metalic pigments from Uschi van der Rosten

That's a hobby sort of posting. I recently bought Uschi van der Rosten's metalic pigments and well, I used to know Alex before he was Uschi you see and this kind of posts can't do him wrong.
