This little guy (7cm by 9cm) had his original hair/brush, used to clean the nib of a dip pen.
Lacking his inserted eyes, and the bronze had an unpleasant color (to me!).
So... a kyratisation project to make him look like what it could have been as a Vienna bronze!
Two tiny onyx cabs for his eyes.
White Posca pen, making dots for the scales and painting large areas.
Permanent markers in different colors blended as applied in layers.
A light brumisation with alcohol to achieve the colors mix and then an application of ashes with a paint brush to give a mat/satin finish.
He is now the realistic French green lizard he ought to be :-)
It took me the whole afternoon!
