    I believe the cast stuff BFoK mentioned is by Hirst Arts. Cool stuff if a little expensive but then you are buying molds.

    Hey oistene,

    Freehand isn't really that scary. Practice, practice practice. And keep the base colour of the area handy for little(or big) corrections.

    Might need to see it from a different angle mate. It looks good but maybe a little too bright. A couple of thin glazes of the shadow tone maybe just to tone it down.
