Looks amazing Pete- really like the tattoo idea and it worked very well. The dark side has its attractions for sure....!

Thanks. Awaiting delivery of a set of the clay shapers for using on the smaller detailed areas so more progress soon.

After waiting nearly two bloody weeks my shapers arrived......made in England then sold to me via Amazon.co.uk they were sent from Germany!!!..go figure...



Costume details:



Arm and lightsaber:



And couldn`t resist putting the saber blades in place to see how she`s looking.....( yes I know the Sith all use red bladed lightsabers but the kit was supplied with a green one so it will do for now until I can get to a show to pick up some red styrene tube).



Nearly there.....

The base is a gloss black from a rattle can and the top dusted with pigments. Then I painted over the design with black ink and picked out the raised details using some red gold Rub`n`Buff:



And here she is finished:








A nice kit, fun to paint and a good addition to the shelf at the end of the build. Thanks for watching!

Amazing build Pete.  The shading on this one is really striking.  You`ll have to do us a little tutorial on how you used these shapers.  And wouldn`t worry about the colour of the lightsabres.  Who`s to say which colour is used (doesn`t it depend on what`s used when it`s built or something?) and provides a bit of contrast the skin colour.


Really striking piece!

Thanks ALun.
Just debating whether or not to enter something else or do I wait to start my next build because I know what`s waiting for me under the Xmas tree!!!!

Very, very impressive Pete. That shading works brilliantly. Not seen the more recent Star Wars films (Should I say that on this site?!!?). Looks like the shapers were a good investment.
