    I don;t know if you got my PM Ray but she is magnificent. Are those markings on the wings painted? They made one hell of a difference. she looks great Ray, prosit and well done, nothing short of your usual high standard. go give them hell.

    She's a stunner, maybe the N things need to be of a darker pigment but could be the foto not showing the contrast?
    Is it dried up to base? Ghamilt goldfish fl-ilma?

    Thanks mate......the Nips were treated like the face I'm afraid, as darker would have lost all contrast....they are shadowed on and beneath the aerola Embarassed
    Forgot to mention I got the same tremours of the thong while I painted them Embarassed Laughing

    Re resin/water pale well the first layer is fully dry BUT yesterday's top up/overlap IS NOT & STILL THE SAME CONSISTENCY pale and it is full to the brim Sad I must have miscalculated the resin/hardener Sad pale YES THEY JINXED HER ALLRIGHT Sad pale

    What am I gonna do??????? I'm gonna try and pull it with the syringe and re apply the top layer again Sad pale will see what happens Sad pale

    Sent you the email with nameplates dimensions but forgot to add my address Sad

    ray dont rush remember that when the layer of resin is thinner it takes longer to dry. so i suggest you leave it for at least 24 hours in a dust free environ.
    btw im not going to comment on the princess, until i hold her in my hands, that is if she lets me

    Alex, I left a sample of yesterday's top up and as I said it remained the same consitency Sad

    So I scraped away ama as I could, but left some "markings" on the surface pale fixed a rim of black telephone wire around the basin's perimiter with super glue to deepen the basin since obviously I managed to fill to the brim yesterday pale sanded it off pale repainted the rim with black pale mixed another batch of resin to which I added a bit more hardener this time pale diluted the resin with Vallejo bronze green, since transparent as it was, my "markings" would show beneath pale and poured it on pale again obviously managing to fill it to the brim again hux pale

    If it does not SEEP OUT of the rim it looks OK Smile except where it overlaps the rear of the leaf pale which diluted as it is with Vallejo's bronze green appears "murky where so very shallow" Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad

    Well the positive thing about it is, that DESPITE ALL THIS UNWANTED AGGRO, I STILL MANAGED NOT TO SWEAR EVEN ONCE cheers and that DEFINITELY IS A GREAT ACHIEVEMENT cheers

    Having a nap coz I'm night Twisted Evil

    Morn ALL....

    End of night duty cheers

    After 14hrs of setting, resin/water getting firmer on the sample cheers

    My only regret is the murkiness of the newly applied resin Sad and especially where it is so evident on the leaf Sad

    Well I guess I have to learn to live with it as it is now Sad nothing I can do pale

    Good Day ALL I love you sunny flower

    You changed your avatar!!! Great! Very Happy

    Version 1: Illallu! Tal genn man. Excellent! This is really a stunner and as usual you pulled it off again! Great painting job and the hair add much animation. THe wings dress the whole model and are very well painted. Great paint job!

    Version 2 (the honest opinion): THe little addition on the wings made a lot of difference! THey broke the monotonous design and give a sparkle of life. Now imagine if you had a display of nice colours. THe hair is also well executed and I personally like the colour. However, her skin tone and design corresponds to the underside of the wings giving her a drab effect without any contrast. I personally would have chosen contrasting and vivid colours to give that punch to the viewer. I personally do not like that Yellow/Green skin tone colour next to the colour blue as I had said earlier. It's not easy to pull off Blue and Green next to each other as these two colours are not contrasting.
    Anyway.... this is my opinion and I'm sure you are proud of what you did because after all it is nice..........it's just that I really expected much more from a true master like yourself! Very Happy

    Best regards
    Noel

    Ray, what about a photo from above, looking directly down on it? That way we can see the wings, the top of her body, the flower and leaf in the basin, etc....

    Great princess!
