The blacksmith figure was made with the tool holding arrangements in place from the start. However, as modelling progressed, I became aware that my proportions were somewhat wrong and that the head was way too large. By a gradual process of further carving and grinding away of material, I was able to bring it round to a more satisfactory conclusion. This ability of Milliput to work with both additive and subtractive processes makes this a great way to go for little figures such as these.
As soon as I was satisfied with the modelling of each figure, I coated each one with white spray primer and then decorated them with acrylic paints.
