Parts of Ask are ready for gesso painting!
To get a nice, even finish, dolls like Ask are painted with an acrylic base color, then sanded over and over again, til they're as even as they can be.
Feels soooo good to finally have reached this stage with at least some parts of him! the rest isn't that far off, either! Ask is a Vanir Dolls Ask and is sculpted from scratch by me.
Materials used: paperclay (mainly).
