The base coats are now done, and the fun can begin. In the photo above the model has already been sealed to protect it from oils. (the head is not glued on though) I like to paint a base coat on everything prior to varnishing even in the cases where additional layers are planned. Basically it lets me see more of a finished model before I add brown, black, and rust colored oil paint. The model won't last long in this mid-tone purgatory, so I thought it might be nice to upload a few photos of the before oil shots.
