Vampire Batman - all done

Well, that was great fun splashing the Tamiya Clear Red around. Enjoyed coming back to figure work after such a long break from them. Think i'll have a look round to see what's out there for another go.

Mnay thanks for the kind comments AL.
I've found the best way to use it is to not mix it at all at first, load some on your brush then dip it in water before applying. That gives you a strong wash of translucent red to begin with. Once dry, stir the jar properly and load your brush properly. That gives you a slightly thicker effect, to be sweirled round any area where the blood might collect - in this case especially between the teeth

Hey I just got one of these to paint for my husband. What kind of paint did you use?
