This is another model kit I painted with an airbrush and put together. I wanted to give her dress a see through effect. I think the dress came out great, but feel her head could of used some more work.
For the skin, I mixed up a skin tone I liked, then sprayed it on. Then I took some crushed and powdered orange pastel, and lightly brushed it in on places I wanted shading. Afterwards, I took the original skin tone, and lightly sprayed on top to blend the orange in.
That Kanu PVC is awesome. Wish I could get one. I have the Monsieur Bome 1/3 scale kit of that Kanu, but have no time to build it at the moment.
It blends in with the base color. I have to blow away the excess powder first, before doing anything next. I also always spray a clear coat once I'm done painting. That helps keep the paint/colors from fading away or anything.
I brush the powdered pastel on when the paint is dry. Basically, the idea behind it is similar to taking the powder on your finger, and rubbing it on paper. It'll color the paper, like pencil crayon or felt pen. Just that, there will be excess powder which needs to be blow away. Clear coat is like a transparent liquid which you can brush or spray on, and it protects the paint from falling off in the near future, and making it some what less likely to get scratched from any accident(no guarantee). All model builders use some sort of clear coat to finish their models.
