What ways do you guys have to paint I'm doing a 1/16th so they are noticable. I have finished the face in oils.

Godfather,
I am guessing that your figure is without noticable eyebrows or eyebrows sculpted onto the face, so I would recommend taking the deepest shade of the hair tone and use that for the eyebrows...apply the eyebrows like they are on your face with a #001 paintbrush. Then go back over the highest part of the eyebrows with the highest value of highlight that you used on the hair to tie them together.
Hope this helps

Actually the eybrows are on teh face and are nicely detailed, so I might do teh drybrushing thing.
