TachiCake 's WIP Custom Gryphonette Face Toucan by omfgitsbutter TachiCake 's WIP Custom Gryphonette Face Toucan by omfgitsbutter
Paint job ahoy! I loooove this guys face so much. But it was a total pain in the butt to paint. Working on finishing up those little paw paws you see in the back but in general its pretty much finished. Just waiting on my 4 yards of fabric to get here :p

I've been slowly getting better at eyes, I've repainted them so many times in the past I think these were a one shot deal :)

They look awesome.  Did you airbrush the rest? You're air brushings getting really good too

Its a mix, but yes, mostly airbrushing. I've found that I need to paint a thick layer before airbrushing because if I dont, when I glaze it can strip the paint ><

Have you had that problem?

try this stuff  Plastikote sandable primer www.amazon.com/PlastiKote-T-23…   It's a sprayable primer, once it's dry then just paint as normal.  Should keep the paint stuck better on the clay. What glaze are you using?

lol yup that was what I would recommend, unless you want to use a spray on, then I just use Krylon clear finish, matt or glossy depending on what I'm doing.  Only other thing I can think of is give a good 24 hours between painting & glazing.  But I know that might not work because of your show deadline ^_^
