I couldn't resist trying out the antiquing finish on the figures and I'm pleased with how she's looking. This is still just the sample resin colour though, not the custom mixed Pantone colour that I've specified. They won't be so yellowish colored when I get the real thing.
The finish brings out the details of the face and hands nicely. Applying the finish, dirtying the figure down like this, isn't about pretending that the figure is a genuinely old artifact, but it does support the notion that she is, in a way, an ancient thing; she's simply a human and we've been around for a long time, relative to humanity of course. Humanity has been around since the beginning of history!
Playing around with the depth of field
Stands alone in some positions, even on one leg!
A couple of pictures so you can get a good sense of the scale of the figure
That's all folks! For the moment...
Only a few more weeks to go now. I must be patient. And I really ought to get on with something else, because I'm not going to want to do another project once they are delivered, am I!
