I went back and did a little more work to the base of this kit.
I plan on entering it in the contest at Wonderfest 07, so I wanted to punch things up a little.
I was going clean it up, and gloss the base a little.
Then I had a brainstorm. Thought maybe some perlescent medium would look good on the base.
It didn't. And it didn't want to come off. At least not with a little work, which also took some paint off.
So then I went over the base with some dark blue, thinned down.
Then over that was some real dark brown gel.
Then I gave it a gloss coat.
|Here are the pics of the finished kit.
Not sure why it looks so glossy in some pics.
I did intentionally leave a few areas with a slight satin finish to give him the wet look.

in-progress stuff from when I was working on the kit.
|Well, this one has been in progress for
a while now. I primered it brown. Then went over it with
varying shades of browns, greens and greys.
I was moving right along until this happened
For some reason all the paint on the base
started to blister. Guess I didn't get is washed good
enough before I primered it.
Still have to tone down the eyes a little bit, and do some more work on the base.
