Kush: Gold,Iron and Blood2 by Sleetwealth Kush: Gold,Iron and Blood2 by Sleetwealth
6" polymer sculpture Ghost of Kush. This is my fantasy of what a dancer of that civilization looked like.

Just astonishing. Flayed and torn and yet such beautiful eyes. Again the way you juxtapose beauty with the macabre is amazing. What did you use to paint her?

Thank you. it is getting much stronger in me.The macabre ,but always a core of beauty and meaning. Seems smooth skin is like a perfect snow covered mountain I must ski across.

I used genesis heat set oils (white paint,pastels(eyeshadow,blushing) and some acrylic for the blood.

Thanks for that. I may look to invest in some of those, I mostly use acrylics post bake.
And I'll have to get smooth skin right before I begin messing it up like new fallen snow. I seem to leave finger prints everywhere no matter how hard I try not to :)

The genesis paints are great. if you get the sample set the small tubes last a long time.[link]

You can blend until youre perfectly satisfied then heatgun or bake as you like. You can also paint thick, as I have the white on the shoulders to look impasto.
You need a light touch if your holding your sculpture and use your hands for bulking out. later tools only.

A paint brush and rubbing alcohol to get rid of finger prints and if you miss some sandpaper.

I'm on clothes making and hair attachment at the moment. I have very little experience of either and it's slow going.

Thank you. Maybe Im inspired or just touched. the interesting part was after carefully sculpting and smoothing to make her pretty. An inner voice said to slice the neck open and begin prying out. I did this with abandon and no fear of ruining it. And I was really pleased to cut all the way to the bottom of the ribcage so,she is divided at the bottom like two legs and you can see right through her.

Thank you! Yes a trance is right! She appears to me staring.Not an expression I tried to do and I couldnt really pin it down because all of my faces have expressions and she seemed more blank to me.
