Nice work

Like the goatee idea,I will have to try that (though non of the women I'm paint at the moment would suit a goatee)

Stephen,
In the 30 years I worked in hospitals, I saw a lot of "ladies" with chin hairs that rivaled mine!! Yuck.

Well, I got some good work done with Satan bust today and he is getting nicer all the time [I know its an act, but it beats all that threatening he spewed out along the way]. says he is really beginning to feel like his "old self", prince of darkness and all that. LOL. gave his goatee chin hair a bit of a trim.











next up? final trim on that beard--it is very stiff from Vallego Matt Varnish. I may coat it with some CA glue before I paint it Flat black/greys. I don't want it to get "bent" later.

Applied insta-cure CA glue to the beard, more white glue to bring out the eyeballs even more, and then painted the beard a flat black. I plan on using greys to highlight the detail in the beard. I really kind of like the white eyes. what do you guys think???---white eyes or the yellow 'snake eyes'

Thanks Mike! I liked the white eyes also and so did my GF when I asked her....so today, Satan got "White eyes" I did some washing around them to see if it would create a better looking transition from the socket to the eyeball. so-so, could have done better just lining around them? bu I didn't. I also used a Vallego wash to make the horns Pop a bit more.

so here he is, the Prince of Darkness. all he needs now is a suitable base. Oh--I considered eyebrows and actually some ear hair poking out, but ran out of guts. sorry!



and now, a word from our "prince of darkness"



"eat worms and die mortals.........*&^$#!*&  *(&!)*^#@"

And I thought he had really changed........I will post him in the final reveal section later when his base is complete and he is mounted.

Stephen and Neil, thank you for the nice comments! I would never made any progress on this resin bust without suggestions and videos posted by several members here. I still did not  do all the paint work that could have made this exceptional. I built [OK--3 parts!] and finished it becasue my son bought it for me. When it is mounted on a base I am giving it back to my son as a "gift". I have already given him a great many objects, art, and other things that define my interests outside of my career. Over the years Neil I have owned a great number of scary objects. I am one of "those" people.....fascinated with odd and unusual, antiques, found objects, etc. Having worked in medicine for 30+ years [including 8 years of experience doing radiography in a morgue as part of my duties among the living], I am fascinated by the macabre.

Thanks Mike. I have a long history with the Macabre of all kinds. I will be giving Satan [or Demon?] to my son. He bought the resin kit for me. Thanks to you and the others who gave me so much good advice and techniques to think about.

Wow Ted, old Nick turned out brilliantly mate !

The flat coat really brought out and blended all of the lovely tone and texture in the skin colour, and I have to agree that the White eyes are the way to go, very evil looking and they really "pop" against the red.

The horns are amazing, you have totally nailed the finish for sure, and the goatee is the cherry on the top lol ! What a stroke of creative genius, it really is t

Thanks Pete! I actually went back today and put on a thin coat of FUTURE over that flat coat. Who knows, I may change it back?! Of course, the future gave the colors a bit more "contrast" and depth.
I've got to nail down a base to put him on and then I will post him up in the final reveal section. Everyone here has been so helpful and supportive through the process of me trying my hand at a figure paint.

Began work on the base today.

1. drilled a 1/2" hole in the bottom of the Satan bust and a 1/2" hole in a round wooden base.
2. I cut a 1.5" piece of round acrylic stock and glued it in the base, then glued Satan on top.
3. covered Satan with a cut off plastic bag--the coke bottle in the picture did not work.
4. Selected a couple of dried shrub roots to use on the base and AB them flat black.
5. carved some styrofoam into "rocks" and glued them to the base [I had already used green tape to
make a "form" around the top of the base.
6.Mixed the hydrocal and poured it over the base inside the form, then used a chip brush to cover the styrofoam
rocks. I set everything aside to dry overnight.

Looking OK so far!















next session at UNIT 7 will involve some painting and such.

Major work on Satan today, getting his base 97% finished. I painted the base Flat black, then the "rocks" Tamiya Silver gray, then highlights with Tamiya Medium gray. Afterwards I had to go back and use more Flat black to restore some key shadows. I applied Tamiya Clear red to the acrylic post supporting the bust. Used an X-acto to carve two holes for the shrub root "trees" and put them in place with hot glue [love me some hot glue action]. Then I used the hot glue to carefully make some surface roots on both trees. I brushed the roots with flat black and later over-coated the roots with Clear red. A bit more finish work to do and Satan is done!
