face painting using oils step by step visual guide wanted

Recommended Posts

Hi,

hours and hours of searching, cannot find a decent well illustrated CLOSE UP step by step of a head/face being painted showing how it progresses, the end result being a real classy piece of work.

Using the classic method of mixing flesh using white, yellow, red and blue.

All google turns up is acrylics. Its as if no one has ever done a quality step by step, also showing use on garment etc, .

Any use to you?

There's a bit about painting faces in oil.

Amazon have it as an e-book for a tenner.

 

The PlanetFigure forum also has an oil painting sub forum.

I have a book that I used  when I first started face painting,found it a good book on all aspects of painting a face and skin,it's from the AK learning series,Techniques to paint all types of flesh in miniatures (Flesh & Skin),you can check it out on line by reading the reviews and it comes in PDF if you like things that way,Cheers.

Hi,

the book I saw but discovered he uses acrylics.

AK book also I see acrylic pots.

For a step by step well illustrated face in oils I still havent found anything, its most bizarre. Oils give far better results in the hands of a mediocre average modeller yet they choose acrylics and consequently tide marks as they lack the extra skills required to try and blend materials not suitable for blending without a lot of hard work and speed given the drying time of acrylics.

Acrylics drying-time can be greatly increased by adding Flow Improver / Drying Inhibitor (not too sure what the correct name is...) Good luck in your quest for finding what you're after.
