    Wow thank you for sharing that with us. I'll be using it with the finishing work on my buddy's deer. I'm new to the sight and all this, so every little bit helps. Was wondering if you have anything posted on here about finishing of the eyes like you did the nose?

    Very nice Eddie.
    I may have to try oils again on my next one.
     
  15. Yes, I did share my eye procedure a couple of years ago. You can find it in the tutorial section by subject.
     
  16. I like the use of brown in the nose. Sometimes I think people leave too much pink on the lower lip, and bottom of the nose, and I really like the way that the browns you used blend it all together much better.
     
  17. Great look as always! Thanks for the information.
     
  18. Ditto for me.

    2 ?'s for you. First what color apoxie sculpt do you use? Second when did you use the oil paints? I'm assuming the oil paint is burnt umber, titanium white and ivory black that you used on the nodules.
     
  20. I use the Natural Apoxie Sculpt. I use the oil paint right after the acrylic. The acrylic dries very fast. You must have overlooked it...On the fourteenth photo down in the tutorial I list the three oil colors that I use. Hope this helps.
