Final Pictures, British Tanker

Fear Naught,  it's done.  

Wet Palette

On Timelines there was some interest in Wet Palettes.  I use one, and it is a neat way to keep your color wet and ready to use.  It is basically a plastic box with a lid that snaps on.  Inside is a thin sponge and a piece of plain white paper.
The paper is like cooking parchment paper.  It does not fall apart when wet, or  shed fibers.  One thing I learned is you can keep the sponge pretty wet.  The wetter the better.  Once I am done with the colors or they dry just a bit, I toss the paper and put in a new one.  Wring out the sponge, soak up some new water and you're ready to go. 

Tankers Pic

Here is a pic I found showing the real deal.  I love the greasy dirty look....

Almost There...

Final stages of painting with the British Tanker, a few touch ups and things to do.....

Worked a little on the torso-  shadows and highlights.  Here is the progress so far-

Brit Tanker, More Work

Been busy with the brush, worked on the face some more, and started on the torso. 

British Tanker, More work

A little more work on the face....  the shiny stuff is the medium I use to retard drying. 

Brit Tanker

I received the Young Miniatures Brit Tanker yesterday- so I set about cleaning the casting and priming the bust up. Here is a little SBS on the face- The photos make this look rough. But as I work thru the shadows and highlights, it will all come together.
