Here it is in black clay – some gooey fresh Premo this time around. It’s actually quite a bit darker in person, but this way you can see the detail.
I tried adding some warm colors and a touch of metallics but I wasn’t really happy with it. The metallic paint scattered the light too much, and at such a small size, it lost coherence and detail.
Cool tip I learned from my husband. Use rubbing alcohol to strip acrylic paint off polymer. I don’t know if it will work if it’s been cured for days but it worked perfectly after it was already dry to the touch for about 45 minutes. A little soaking and some scrubbing with a paper towel and it was back to the original black.
It does need something but I may wait a bit to figure out what. Any suggestions?
I may also treat it as a small study and do a larger version later on.
