    :D You know me so well. I look at this model every night before I go to bed. I think I'm going to repaint/airbrush the skin entirely to get that pacific islander skin tone base back and then try to brushpaint the shading and highlighting to see if I can keep from making a mess of things again. I need to keep in mind what you and others have reminded me of over and over again to push my shading and highlighting. I was really happy with the last two models I did, but the scale was different and so I was able to get better results quicker or at least see my mistakes quicker and try to fix them rather than get to the point where I'm frustrated.

        Either of you have any advice on doing water effects on an uneven edge? I put tape around the edge of the model's base and poured the water effect in and all seemed fine. I checked on it a few hours later and it'd all drained out through an uneven spot that the tape didn't cover (and I didn't see earlier).

        Sorry but I don't think I'll be finished in two days as I have to work tomorrow, which means I wont get to work on the model until tomorrow evening. Can we push the finish to Sunday?

          I had this issue with my corrupted elf. I took clear blister material and cut to size, put that around the edge and taped it over the outside and too each other. I then applied a couple of runs of pva to any join areas. that held it for me

            Thanks DL, I'll give that a try. I was really looking forward to having that first layer of water effect dry today after I got home so that I could add the second layer this evening. :(

                thanks! I'll set it up again tonight and seal the edges with PVA glue. At least I dry the PVA with a hair dryer, so that part will go quickly at least. :P

                  Well I'm going to have to drop out of this one. I wasn't happy with how he was turning out. I think I've discovered that I don't enjoy painting miniatures that are quite that large.

                  Oh well. This is where it got to before I called it quits anyway.

                      The face on your LJ was turning out really nice! Much better than mine. I rushed and finished mine Saturday night. I wanted to do some touchup on Sunday but ran out of time. What do you guys think?




                      I learned a lot with regards to water effects and capliary action. Capliary action caused the water effect to dry along the edge higher than on the rest of the base and I had to cut it down (you can kind of see some of it around his legs and on the plant). I also wanted to have him holding a fish or aquatic creature, but couldn't find one in time and the set I had order still hasn't come in. :( I also wanted to paint the outside of the base black, which is why it looks so unfinished. I had initially wanted to paint some Maori tattoos on his face and possibly his chest and/or arm(s), but ran out of time.

                        those water effects came out great, was the wavy water on purpose or a happy accident?
