Cryptkeeper paint-up step-by-step pics

I snapped this series of pics when I did my first attempt at painting a blank a few months back. Thought I'd share them nce we opened the new section.

Thanks for looking; Lee

1. Blank pull cleaned with alcohol to remove any dust or release agent

2. Deepest areas of the mouth and nose are painted first

3. Basecoat brushed around the detailed areas

4. Remainder of basecoat sponged on to prevent any brushstrokes

5. Dark brown stain added to give depth

6. Lowlights are airbrushed in

7. Eyes and teeth are painted and coated with 5-minute epoxy to give permanent gloss

8. Hair added to complete the finishing job

Thanks for the post! I'm about to paint my first my full head mask and this will definately be a good reference.

That's awesome!

Thanks for the tutorial man, I have been wondering what was needed to paint a mask.
