The Face

Well, I was a little disappointed about the cracks showing in the paint, this photo has 2 coats of primer and 2 coats of yellow. Apparently the exposure has been lengthy and beyond a simple smoothing with sandpaper and paint. As I did with Mary though, I would be able to fill them with a rub of paint.

That's what I did here except this is only half way for the coats of paint. I needed to do a glaze and another flesh color before I could move on.
Here is where I wish for a air gun, it's hard to blend and fade colors like eyeshadow.


More white eyes....


And the finish. She looks a lot better in person because the flash causes a glare but this is how she ended up.
I'll have comparison photos when she is done. C&G Design
