So after the details were painted in, I applied a controlled oil wash for the dark shade areas. This was allowed to dry a couple of days before the next step. The highlights were also done in oils, but this time applied using a dry brush technique.Once the oils had dried a couple more days, I sprayed a flat coat over the whole bust. To finish off, I applied some gloss varnish to the eyes, nostrils and edge of the mouth. This makes a nice contrast to the overall flat finish and adds life to the bust.
