Trying to Reconcile the Paint Job

The problem, I decided, was the gulf between red muscle and blue crystal.  I decided to try glazing over the muscles using blue, in an attempt to give the effect of skin even over the portions without crystal texture.

This helped, a little.  I decided to add reflective ‘spots’ on the highest parts, such as the miniature’s forehead, knee, heel, and the crystals.

While the miniature is interesting, its current paintjob fails to convey the sense of depth and dimension that translucent skin would give.  In my mind as I imagined Collux, the reflective spots would hover above the layer of the muscle very slightly.

As it stands, I’m trying to decide whether to strip the mini and try again using a different technique.

He’s being stripped.  I’ll leave him in the Dettol for a couple days, then scrub him and see how much damage has been done to the Milliput.  I used plastic cement in most of the key areas (neck being the obvious exception), so it shouldn’t be too bad?

I got some last-minute advice that soaking in Dettol would ruin some of the work done with Milliput and Greenstuff.  Instead, I soaked him for 10 minutes, then scrubbed using a toothbrush.  As expected, the pickaxe hand came off, but nothing else seems to have detached and I haven’t lost any pieces.  Onwards!
