Re: Tommy's girl

What kind of tracing paper...most of it will start turning yellow and become somewhat brittle. I like either drafting vellum or marker paper when it comes to this type of support.
Nice flesh tones and really like the name flag on the piece.

Re: Tommy's girl

This is beautiful and well done. Would worry too about the support. You just got everything so right.

Re: Tommy's girl

Hey hey Fez,
Beautifull work as always!!

Man so jealous. Ive got 2 packets or duralar drafting film just sitting around cause it does not take pencil at all. Not sure if I need to sand it or what. Have you used films before?

Also the vellums, how are you finding the cp applies? Do you need to be heavy handed or just layer it in lightly?

Hey wolfofsin,

I've never used films. The vellum takes CPs awesome. I find I have a heavier hand when working with vellum for sure.

Hi, WolfOfSin--
is your duralar coated to accept dry media? If not, you'll never get cp (or much of anything else) to stick. Another thing to keep in mind is that drafting film won't take many layers. Maybe 5. If you're lucky.


Bobby?
did this end up as a tattoo? If so, I'd love to see a pic of it on the person.

This did not end up a tattoo, he wasn't that crazy. It was a present for his girlfriend of the time. Ha.
