The water portion will receive several gloss coats using Future acrylic floor wax and them I'll add some vegetation.
I've already started to work on this and I'll be using a sort of thread that is mostly used by plumbers (as a sealer in screwing joints), or to create tapestry, called fio de sisal. I dyed it green a little using Tamiya paints diluted with alcohol (water didn't work, it just got the thread soaked).
First,the faces where given a really thin coat of primer, just to check for something to fill or sand. Then they were given a coat of white using the airbrush and, after that, I brushed the flesh colour. After about 20 min, I gave them a wash of burnt sienna oil paint and left to dry overnight. The next day I applied some points of titanium white with a 10/0 brush, spreading them gently to get a fading finish that works as an highlight.
More soon, I hope!
