    Faces and Expressions (part 2)


    Here are two 54mm Scale Heads (Inquisitor size) from Verlinden pack 1598 (courtesy of Historex-Agents ) Over the next few photographs I am going to demonstrate how the expressions of the faces can be painted to (I hope) their best advantage.

    A first coat of mixed Tanned Flesh and Dwarf Flesh was applied to most of the face omitting the heavy creases around the mouth and eyebrows

    Gradually, by adding more Dwarf Flesh to the paint mixture, the Cheekbones, forehead, upper lips and chin had the colour lightened.
    At this stage pure Dwarf flesh was painted over the Cheekbones, Forehead, Nose, Upper lips and the Chin. The Ridges around the Crows feet were also picked up with this layer of paint.
