Hi Christer:

Very nice work. The facial skin tones are some of the best I've seen in
a while. Well done. Did you use acrylics or oils. . . or a combination of
both?

Hi Rick,

The entire bust is painted with Vallejo Model Color.

I have also written an "How to paint-giude" that is provided in this kit. The guide contains of 14 pages and it takes you through the whole painting procedure, step by step.

Regards

Christer

Hi. Do you know anywhere where this kit can be bought via the net? A friend has asked me to track one down, and NLP doesn't seen to have a website. Cheers.

Hi there,

The NLP URL is in the feature, but here you go http://www.nlpminiatures.com/ Click the NLP miniatures link in the left navigation bar. I didn't see the bust there, but perhaps you could contact them directly via their website...
Alternatively contact Christer... the URL to his BLOG is in the feature
