Painting The Latex Orc Mask. (Part 3: Detail and More Color)

Painting The Latex Orc Mask. (Part 3: Detail and More Color) again with the same paint mix as before we open up the airbrush so we can get some nice mottling.  Then we go in with some medium level coverage to add highlights and layers of color.



After that we do some slight yellow green. and then prep the eyes and teeth by painting them white. after that paint the teeth and eyes with both airbrush and by hand. Next wet coat!

Painting The Latex Orc Mask. (Part 2: Oil paints)

Rubber cement, Naptha, and oil paint. make up this highly volatile paint. (warring I'm not responsible for ANYTHING you do). The mixture has a huge amount of vapors, this requires you to wear a respirator mask when using. It is highly flammable NEVER use around an open flame.

A new line of Halloween, LARPing, and cosplay masks.

My Etsy store is being built. this will be where you can purchase from a new line of Halloween, LARPing, and cosplay masks. They will be made to be adjustable and have options when ordering so you get closer to the look you want without the cost of a custom mask. Primarily Fantasy based themes but some horror monsters will be made in the future.
