  5. (Re)Painting headsculpts
    I was looking for info on painting a head (inspired by a thread complaining about not having darker heads and bodies out there) and found a blog entry on using die instead of painting. Thoughts? I was wondering if that would not crack or fray.

    Partly out of curiosity and partly because there isn't a head sculpt on the market that matches the Jiaou 'normal' colour male, I've started my first tentative stab at painting a head sculpt. After reading and watching a multitude of tutorials, many of which contradictory, I decided to start...

    This is my first attempt at painting a headsculpt. I bought a lot of 6 unpainted sculpts on ebay. They have slight imperfections, were cheap so I figured why not? The HS's were from various zombie inspired movies. Don't remember the movie this HS was based on, but, whatever. I'm not a movie...

    I recently bought my first Kumik head. (13-31np) In the product photos there are a lot that I like, so I was curious to see one for myself.
