Sculpting me day 8&9

yeah, close enough :) Sorry for this, but all my dioramas are my own story, I really love the real History, but it has mostly nothing to do with my dioramas; first i have the idea and then i try to hook it up to some particular time of history so that it winds up the people looking at my dioramas :) So basically, that's me as a 1920 Hungarian Red Hussar.

Sculpting the main character day 8

Day 8 already, how time flies :) I fell in no mood yesterday evening to start the face, so i did the small details that were left to add on the trousers.

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
