Started the paint job

Started the paint job, originally uploaded by Jamie Durrant.

The first pass at the paint job. I’m using pax paint, which is essentially a 50/50 mixture of prosaide and acrylic paint. If you need a wash that is less opaque, then use some water in the mixture.

I need to go back and add more detail and definition to the mask. Primarily using sponged to paint on layers of paint, with some more detailed work with a brush.
