Wip – 2013 – Kabuki Models Tinkerbell

In Lucca Comics , this year the Kabuki brought some good news in his Pin up in 54mm , and I could not miss the Tinkerbell (but not the only one I got …: D ) .

And so I immediately started to get their hands and the colors …

After cleaning up small burrs on the top, a coarse step on the leg lengthened ( Kabuki shame because the molds are usually perfect … ) and closed some small bubbles are passed to the primer and the complexion.

I wanted to try a new technique for me : I used acrylic paint to create the base of the complexion ( mixing white , burnt umber and burnt sienna ), but I immediately missed the dilution , creating small lumps of color. ..
I then removed all away with some water and started again from scratch.

After applying the base ( this time in a decent way ) I switched to oil paints .

Following the video of David Tens on Youtube Channel NKGC I gave everything on the complexion a wash of burnt sienna . After a while I started to put small amounts of white where I wanted that there were clear parts , and with a clean brush I blended the color. I repeated the process several times until a shade that pleases me .

The same I did on the dress …

In this step I used the technique of salt for the hook , while the wings I used the nail enamel pearl and iridescent . The effect is good …

I must admit that for me it was great fun to get your hands on a figure , just to take away from the routine of mecha …: D
