Skin tone finally added in after a number of setbacks. As usual....cellphone cam skewing colors.

Really nice work. May I ask what materials do you use for the resculpt, and what type of paint do you use?

Thanks for the kind words.

I used a dremel with various bits to sculpt out all the abs, back muscles and other anatomy features typically seen out of the original polystone body then sanded down to glass with regular elbow grease and sandpaper. I use regular opaque and transparent paints of various brands and thinned down as needed. I use extenders as needed.

thanks. the skin tone paint scheme still needs some punching up before it is complete...especially in the head. when that is done I will move on to the hair, facial details and lastly the earrings. the costume parts will be the last including the belt/buckle.

I bought some powdered water, but I don't know what to add to it.

Hi Gents!

after a very very long hiatus from my project I was able to devote 2 days of work on this. i reworked the skin tone, added a quick base coat on the hair and based the armor bits in black paint to prep it for the shiny paints. some parts are not pictured like the groin armor, earrings, and buckle but they are pretty much just painted black.

i only have a 3 year old samsung phone camera with crap lighting so as you can see the pics are crap too...but you get the idea.

Thanks for the updates. Looking good.

I finally picked up an Angela (reg) direct from Sideshow (old/new stock or a return?).

Super nice piece
Once my new stand has been built, the plan is to display Angela with Captain Marvel and Gamora.
I picked up Gamora a couple of weeks ago for a good price, although one of the blue base crystals needs re attaching.

She is looking wonderful. Can't wait to see her finished up. I'm excited for you!
