Completed fig

So now one of those bllloody moments, when I finish a work, take pics and realize they are all blurred. And now the figwas undercoated which means I can't show anything better.
Well here is the fig as it appears now, with some Green stuff details here andthere like zis for clothes -and ears and hair too            

The pilot's face

Ah well, the pilot is not that busted inthe end.. here is the face as glued, as well as some torn clothes done of GreenStuff. His right shoulder is dangling precariously though.
The fig still hasn't any ears or pockets or hair, but that will be for tonight.
I am afraid he looks more Russian than American though.. I may have to sand hima bit in places indeed..

Starting on the fig

Here we are with the fig this time
First a Magic Sculp silhouette with some piano string inside to strengthen it.the work is quite crude at this stage..yet you may notice the nice coat of primeron the F-105 as well as  the fact that the body is pressed against the fuselagefor the exact shape.

The completed hull of the f-105

Okay that’s it, the plane is mostly completed.

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
