Have you thought about adding a thin under-layer of pink - it may give the skin a more natural tone....

Think of Microman customs as a kind of style. Kind of like making star wars figures out of Stikfas or Kubrick. They are not made for realism, just for ultimate actuation. However, I think you would love the jedi that I'm working on next. He will have all of his joints covered in softgoods.

Hi M_P

Mate the colour on the body looks great I would give the head a wash of the same colour as it looks a tade lighter other then that it's coming along great.

Looking great so far. The paint is a dead match. I am looking forward to seeing this one finished.

To the dismay of a lot of the fan boys out there, Ms. Secura is now wearing a shirt. I pieced it together from some Kaki fabric and glued it in place. I'm working on the right sleeve now. Here is a picture of my workspace and the state that she is in now.

Thanks hemble. I put the cloth on the right arm also last night. I think it looks too thick like she is wearing a jacket arm. I'll take a picture tonight and probably remove it and just paint the arm. He paints are painted on now also. She needs shoes and her belt. The belt will be some leather strips from darth_ripley.

Phruby -

I wonder if you could paint through some gauze, then lift the gauze off while the paint is still wet, to give a stencil effect that would have some depth? That way the sleeve would be *very* fitted?

This is coming along beautifully. Sorry I haven't commented to that effect before.

She's looking good.  I think adding some clothing helps these micro(wo)man customs.   I think Rem's idea on guaze may be a good one.


Can you share your paint recipe for Aayla?  As a colorblind customizer, specific details are helpful for me :) :) :)  Thanks!

That's a good idea to use the gauze. I'm going to have to try that. The mix of colors I used for the skin was a base of flat white. Then added drops of light blue and grey until I could get a color that matched the head. Its pretty random. I'll probably never get that exact shade of color again. I'll get the exact color names to you tonight.

I was thinking. What about glueing gauze onto the arm and painting it? That will hide the joints and look more like a sleave.

I think you'd need really thin guaze or it would be just as bulky as the other fabrics.

Yah, your probably right. The fabric I'm using now is pretty thin and the gauze will probably be the same thickness.
