New figure sculpting

Well, I sort of missed the company, so I am back again with yet another diorama and yet another story to tell.

It will be a creepy one and certainly as much insane than Baba Yaga, but yet there won't be any dead person in it.

Pebeo's outliner (Cernes relief)

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
