Elizabeth progress: Sculpey painted, half of coat finished
Today I mostly finished one side of the coat’s trim, except for a little bit of detail work. I also painted the Sculpey pieces. Coat first:
These are the pieces I posted before when they were unpainted. None of the Sculpey pieces look quite this shiny in reality, but the paint’s a tad wet, and the flash adds shine. I think I did a pretty good job of imitating the blackened gold look of the original.
And this is the piece I’m most proud of. It’s not perfect, but I think I did pretty well. It’s the 7″ diameter piece that goes in the center of the belt. It’s definitely the piece I was most worried about. Here’s what the original looks like.
