I think that I am just about there.
He was darker than I would have thought. Some of the colored photos that I found of him were much darker than I would have thought in the black and white ones.
Anyway, I have been jumping on and off of the pasta machine for the past hour.
It was just about the color of the block on top... Just a hint of flesh color.
I added about one of those little blobs to a large piece of the flesh color... I may have to add just a touch more.
It is easy enough to do, but you don't want to add a big bunch all at once or you may get a terra cotta skin tone. It doesn't take much to darken the flesh color.
I am just about satisfied with it.
I got the two large pots that I planted the geraniums in, in this photo.
I have been alternating planting and cranking the pasta machine. Both are good exercise, but each has it's own set of muscles... I am going to be sore tomorrow. Oh well, I can sit and sculpt Albert.
It's a good excuse to do that and nothing else tomorrow.
See you then!
