Really nice finish on this bird!

Can I ask you 2 specific questions about painting

1) What technique did you use to demark the (soft but clear) different colors on the upper surface (I'm guessing paper masks with spots of poster-tack)?

2) What technique did you use to bring out the panel lines after painting (maybe airbrushed "transparent smoke" or pastels)?

Thanks

Hi!

 

Sorry about the late reply!

About the first question: It's quite simple to demark the colors. To make them "soft but clear" I always use rolls (worms) of "Blu-tack", a kind of plasticine, from the label Bostik. It's fat-free and very efective.

about the second question: I used a oil wash (a mix of sienna and black oils with white spirits) and, at specific points, I apply a very thin smoke (Tamiya X-19) layer.

Hope that helps.

all the best,

Paulo
