A detail picture

I think it rather works actually. Now the next step will be to embed all the reeds etc.. of course a lot of colour correction will be needed *************//////////////////////////////''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''\*********************** I have been observing tha some people were searching for the Archangel article, well it's not there anymore, I have been selling the rights to Flagship Models who put it on a CD.

The groundwork applied on the water base

After having let my groundwork bits dry on the heating, I trimmed them from the CD base with a long cutter blade and glued them on the resin water i did a while back. *IMPORTANT* -If I were about to use some regular superglue, it would *fog* the transparent resin!

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
