Thanks Stephen,

It was your videos along with everyone's suggestions that have helped me work through this figure. first time to do anything like this besides the standard 1/48 pilots and such.

At UNIT 7 today [and yesterday], I made some good progress with SATAN. Problem is, I have so many pictures I got myself confused. some of the work is subtle.

1. Basically I AB some Tamiya Flat RED,

2. PLEDGE coated the bust,

3. then rubbed it with red enamel per Mike's suggestion [worked great Mike--the "flesh" came to life  but did not particularly show in the pictures-bummer].

4. Then I did a sludge wash with black and DK gray pastels/water/drop of soap.

5. Last treatment was a coat of Tamiya "clear red" per Pete's suggestion. I like it guys. I like it a lot! THANKS

so I hope YOU can sort the pictures out. some of the text on images may be wrong---sorry.















upon closer review, I think I have the pictures and labels correct. or do I?

Well, due to my computer crash and hard rive failure/replacement, I lost a few pictures of Satan [he is really mad---he is SOOO vain--but I guess that is normal for Satan??-LOL].

I decided today to remove the Liquid Masking on the horns. premature? yep. I'm like a kid that finds his hidden Christmas presents and sneaks a peek. However, in the process of removing the masking, I dropped Satan and broke a horn off. it broke on a glue seam so all I had to do was clean up the parts a bit and CA his horn back on. He had a "chunk" missing from the back part of horn--thank goodness it was in the back, right? The seams where I filled in with Vallego Putty got stained a bit with the Masking fluid--it is blue--but no matter, paint will cover that easily.

I am going to be away a bit on a stay-cation with the GF. may be gone most of a week? having withdrawals already!!





Satan and I will be back asap from UNIT 7

Satan is looking suitably demonic now mate !
The colours are really bringing the dark lord to life (immortality?)

I think that the dropping of him is the sign of dark forces at work Ted, there seems to be a lot of it about at the moment as I have had my share too. I reckon it must be the work of evil as there's no way on earth I could be so monumentally stupid as too drop my Bomber so late into its construction without some form of intervention from the netherworld (is there ?)

Okay, I spent a bit of time at UNIT 7 today and got some small work done with Satan. I applied Masking Fluid around the base of the horns and then brushed on Tamiya XF 1-Flat Black as a "primer" on both horns. I intend to make the horns look exactly like ref pics I have of big horn sheep. Today, I also applied a very heavy SLUDGE wash with Vallego Dark Pigment, water, and a drop of soap. The mix was very thick but hey..........I applied it anyway. Let it dry of course, then worked with paper towel pieces and Q-tips to remove part of the "sludge"--made a big ole mess--more work on that later.




NOT MY PHOTO.....................NOT MY PHOTO....................FOR REFERENCE ONLY

Meanwhile, at U N I T 7 today:

more work on Satan of course. I removed the Microscale micromask from around the horns. Next, I cleaned up the sludge wash from yesterday some more. Final satanic
work today? several coats of PLEDGE before I concentrate on the horns.









Next? undercoat the horns as I did the torso and head, paint base color--Med brown?--PLEDGE--sludge wash dark brown, etc.--dry brush--finish detail satan bust/face/eyes/highlights, then overcoat everything with FLAT VARNISH. last item? a proper BASE for the Dark Lord of the underworld!

Satan had his horns isolated today----I masked off the head and torso to protect it from the work on the horns. Looks simple but I spent a long time and lots of small pieces of Tamiya Tape to cover all the shapes and angles. finished the masking with some FROG painters tape and masking fluid. hopefully all this work will make the masked areas invincible to anything I do on the horns??? as always---fingers crossed.









NO paint for Satan today. I had some horrific AB problems.

I made some good progress on Satan bust today. I applied a thick sludge wash to the horns. Honestly, the wash was more like paint. Artists pastels [X3] + water+a drop of soap.
I got the effect I wanted for this step. the color looks really close to the Rams horn reference pictures. YAY! I let the wash dry well, then buffed it down with Q-tips. Last step was to brush on some PLEDGE. The next step will just be to accent the cracks and crevices in the horn molding. lots of detail there.........LOTS.












I applied the sludge mix to the flat paint with no coating of PLEDGE. I wanted the muted brownish reddish mix to get deposited into the base color. It worked well IMHO. I could still buff some away from the detail without losing the richer brown tones altogether.




Of course, the PLEDGE made the color "darker", especially over a "dry" surface. I will probably do a dark wash next to "deepen" the cracks and crevices in the horns, then come back with a light sludge wash or lighter color dry brushing to highlight the ridges and other high points in the detail. Its all on the table right now. I have to observe each step carefully. I also have to remember that the final flat varnish will lighten the colors back some. Now I remember why I have not approached larger figure painting before. Satan bust was a gift from my son and it will go back to him when it is finished.

Nice save on the horn Ted, you can't tell at all that it's been repaired.

Old Nick is looking suitably evil now and you are right it will all come together once the flat coat goes on

thanks Pete. When I sludge washed the horns again today, let them dry, then rubbed the wash down some, I removed the head/torso masking to find I needed to do a LOT more repair on that broken horn area. I need to do some carving and such---today's pictures reveal the rest of the damage from my sloppy work with the CA glue during the repair. it can be "fixed" and it will be.

I used a black sludge wash before the masking removal. The masking also created some damage to the PLEDGE coats I applied yesterday. I guess I needed to press the tape pieces on my skin before applications?  I can clean Satan off some and the final flat varnish should even out those areas?

More work needs to be done in a few areas to buff today's dark wash off the high points. I was not wearing my powerful magnifiers so I thought it all looked kosher---not so when I look at the images on my large PC screen. Once I have the dark wash buffed down good, I am thinking about very careful sanding off the tops of the horn areas just a very slight amount---using a superfine sander. Just enough to make those areas POP. I am thinking about that rather than dry brushing??? I believe that it can work if I go very gently and slowly, evaluating each small area carefully??















Thats all for today from UNIT 7.

UNIT 7 was under a time crunch today. I arrived late and had about 90 minutes to work[I have not received my own key to the building yet, so I can be there 9a-5p 6 days a week and 9a-1p on Sundays]. I used my new Dremel tool to do more "repair" on my CA glue mess when I re-attached the horn I broke when I dropped Satan on the floor a few days ago. Say that 3 times fast!! LOL. Now I have to apply more red paint in several spots as well as another thin black sludge wash overall. The newly painted red areas need some clear red applied + the wash. IPA did not take the damaged PLEDGE off of the head/torso. Got to give that another go---otherwise I've got a major problem! I highlighted some high points with Tamiya XF Flat Red today. closer to the finish but several steps to consider and do in the correct order.











that was all I could do to Satan today.

All I did with Satan today was a bit of red touch up and then a thinner dark sludge wash than before. I got a call from my GF that she was leaving work early so I left Satan to dry. Of course, July 4th is a holiday here so I may not be back to UNIT 7 till Monday? have a great weekend everyone!







Until next time gentlemen!

Thanks for looking in Neil! The day I broke the horn and glued it back on with CA glue I loaded too much glue down in the "break line". I should have used the CA for the re-attachment and then filled in the break area with some type of putty. The CA has been very hard to "carve" out properly because of the location of the line, the curve, etc. My dremel does have some pretty fine grinding points but I need to find even smaller ones. I actually had some very small/narrow cutting wheels leftover from my old motor-tool, but did not find them till after I had already chopped the re-placed horn up a bit. Living and learning here as usual. I keep reminding my self to think smaller, slower, more careful, etc.
