The finishing...

Finishing the cast comes from years of practice. Basically what I use is acrylic paints. The colors are applied by airbrush in layer to create the skin tone, starting with the lightest colors and finishing off with reds and blues. I sometimes use up to 10 different colors to achieve a "Caucasian flesh tone" (photo - 16)
Here we see Bill slowly transforming. The eyes has been color matched to what the client felt was Bill's color, which is a light blue (photo - 17).

After carefully positioning the wig on Bill's sculpture, I then finish-off with the eyebrows and eyelashes (photo - 18).

"... it was a pleasure working with you. Thanks for your patience.
Everyone that has seen the figures think they are incredible.
You did a bang-up job!..."
