broad brush



Given the scale, does one paint the eye and fill the recess with a clear medium, fill then paint or don't fill at all?

Do you know of any examples I could study? Not even sure what a good google search would be.

sorry. I always watch the news with my morning coffee so I was replying in that vein.

I think youtube would be a better choice than google:

Thanks for the links. They will come in handy with other figures. Just still not sure how recessed iris should be painted. Maybe the same, I figure there is different method, almost like some makes scale eyes to insert like a taxidermist.
