Finishing The Thing
I do some light sponging again to the raised veins with the same flesh mixture and a little more floetrol added to the mix. (Images 10 and 11)
I then do some pin washes on the forehead and various other areas such as the outer corners of the eyes using Asurmen blue (Citadel washes). I open up the airbrush to about 20 psi and spray a wash of light flesh (Dermacote) which was cut 50/50 with golden airbrush medium over the entire head. I am careful not to let it build up in any specific areas, just an overall wash. I then spray a very thinned down wash of smoke (Tamiya) over the entire head again, including the lips.
