A Colourful Corporal
Well, our 1812 soldier now has some colour. In a few days, I’ll have his hands and other soldiering accessories painted and glued in place. A final urethane finish will protect the acrylic paints and really make the colours come out. You probably can’t see it in this photo, but I have quite a bit of colouring to make him look a bit battle worn…basically, some mud and dirt look. I’m really glad that I added the legs and shoes as I think that it completes the caricature that started out as a bust.
I’ll get another picture up later this week, hopefully.
