not a whole lot of work tonight but did correct some gaps where the horns were glued on. I noticed that the pattern in the horns is not exactly consistent--they should be if you look at reference pics of RAMS which is what the horns are based on. but they will be OK. When the Vallego Putty is dry, time to give Satan Bust a soapy bath. I also see some "fuzzy" bits that need to be carefully sanded off-these occurred when I was using the curette to scribe some deeper detail in the existing sculpt lines.
finally close to AB on some primer and base black.



Satan Bust is now watching me work on the Phantom. he is a nosy $%#@*&% !!

so today SATAN Bust gets a good soapy bath and rinse before I spray him with Primer. Love to punish Satan!!!  LOL.



In order to protect myself from Satan's wrath, I am wearing my "Satan Wrath Preventative Tinfoil Hat" when I work on Satan Bust.

Michael, Pete, thanks guys. I needed a bit of humor today and thanks to Pete and the rest of you nuts it wasn't hard to find. I actually left the tinfoil hat on when I went to the post office, the hobby shop, and the Pizza Place. wish I had a mini camera inside of it. great social experiment.I had no problem finding a seat, my place in line---everyone was so courteous and moved out of my way--wide berth is what they gave me and my hat--its "magical"...... I love to stick barbs in Satan Pete. He has certainly had his turn at me!



Now I have Satan on a stick! the base looks heavy but it isn't really. It will hold him for overall AB coats and detail painting. nice part is that when I take the bamboo skewer in my hand, the RESIN and base balance each other perfectly and allow me to have good control for more painting--or so I imagine. if for any reason the base does NOT work out--the snippers take care of the skewer and its gone.

As long as the base is heavy enough not to tip over, but small enough to hold in your hand you should be golden. I'm using an old cardboard holiday ribbon spool lol. Its not heavy but it's low and wide.
I'm guessing you'll have some good control with that stick-stand.

Just be warned, top heavy objects like to grab your arms and shirt when you reach for other objects on your desk lol. Especially when they're pointy.

I'm backkkkkkkk! well, for a bit anyway. I actually cleaned up my hobby bench. putting things away that had been left out, etc. you guys know the drill. time to clean up when you can't locate the model you were working on. the stones are history but being in the bed for quite a few days really got my back upset. often feeling the lyrics to the classic Jimmi Hendrix tune "Purple Haze" :

"Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just don't seem the same
Actin' funny, but I don't know why
Excuse me while I kiss the sky

Purple haze all around
Don't know if I'm comin' up or down
Am I happy or in misery?
Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me

Help me
Help me
I don't know

Yeah! Purple haze all in my eyes
Don't know if it's day or night
You got me blowin', blowin' my mind
Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?"

this is also Pete's song as he whiffs the fumes!LOL


well, in addition to the stones [kidney that is], my mom has been going downhill physically and mentally. its to be expected with her health problems and lifelong habits. she is a bit better today and that is one reason I am here.

well, what is up with SATAN?? you know-I'm not superstitious, but I did get those stones after I mocked Satan in the soapy bath--could it be???............nah, just a coincidence, right?

I decided a while back to paint the horns a "natural" sheep color using reference pics of bighorn sheep, with some washes and dry brush for accent and detail. I really needed to attach the horns from the beginning in order to address any gaps n such. I am using Microscale's Micro Mask to keep the horns protected from the other paint work, even the primer. I will apply several layers of masking fluid with drying time in between each coat. the horns are highly detailed so I need a thick coat so that it will pull off easily when I am ready to remove it--least that is the idea. after the head and bust is completed, I will remove the horn masking and reverse the process to protect the areas close to the base of the horns, then use something else for the rest of the bust. I simply felt that I could not get tape to conform to the horns and also work it around the tight areas of the head and neck/ears. I would have had a nightmare to paint around with a bunch of tape? well, at any rate you will see if this method works.
picture? sure:

thank you Neil. I wanted you guys to know where I have been. Ive taken care of my mom for 11 years. that began when I got divorced. Before my divorce, I helped take care of my dear mother-in-law for nine years before she died. I am a consummate "care-taker" personality. the world has to have us. we don't mind the job most of the time and it has its own rewards. Having a long career in direct health care I can readily accept all the phases of life and death, health and sickness. My mom and I spend a lot of time remembering the good times and people we love. it helps her mental state.

Now Satan has a coat of Liquid Mask on both horns. I had to keep him calm by placing my Sturmtiger on guard Duty. He is really pissed about the blue horns--even more than the soapy bath! wait till I give him a pink nose! LOL




SORRY--duplicate image

thank you Simon.

after several more coats of the masking liquid, the horns are a beautiful rich shade of blue. super glossy as well.

He certainly doesn't look upset about his horns, maybe Mr B L Zeebub is turning over a new leaf ?

And remember the devil is in the details !
