    Great tutorial - thanks very much for sharing!

    I totally agree with the advice: 'Just give it a go!' because 'practice makes perfect'

    I spent about 4 months thinking 'I've got to start repainting headsculpts' but not having the courage. Finally, a couple of weeks ago, I gave it a go and just experimented. I started with 3 spares I had - all 3 ended up looking hilarious! - but I learned a lot from my mistakes. I've just done 2 more for the Space Villain competition which are certainly an improvement on the first three!

    But now I'll definitely be trying out your techniques on my next repaint!

    OK here ya go-


    I love this technique, although I cheat and use an airbrush for the washes, and I use flesh tone hobby acryllics. I get very good results .

    This is a repaint I did for myself before I knew of your technique.



    This is a Mego scale repaint using your technique, especially about the wash which I didn't know about:

    Never give up, never surrender!!

    Remember that your big fingers will be able to hold tiny delicate brushes.

    I don't think he'll hear you, he hasn't been active on here since 2009 and I don't know what happened to him.

    It is a good tutorial though

    CHEERS!

    Re: Tutorial:Repainting a head sculpt

    thanks for the tutorial!

    i have a question about pastels, am i supposed to wet the brush before apply them? im using a dry brush and i'm having a hard time getting the color to stick to the lips.

    another question: when i'm applying my wash, the wash wont stick on some parts of the head. the left cheek collects paint evenly but the right cheek has a small spot that paint just wont stick to.

    Re: Tutorial:Repainting a head sculpt

    thats a great tutorial and im so happy to have learned a little more.i pretty much improvised with alot of stuff, ways of adding texture etc.. changing the angle of the eyes imo can really bring a sculpt to life... i did not like my did patton sculpt so i turned him into an oily gangster with shifty eyes but i only have the balls to do it to sculpts i originally dislike or intend on modifying when i buy them

    Great looking gangster, but, I'd start your own thread for him or your good work may be lost if attached to a necropost.

    CHEERS!
