Buddy of mine David has wooden doles with pins that he puts in the feet of models. That would be handy when painting up underneath the model. I hope to make my own set someday.
Have to say now that I have tried this. I love it. It provides me a more secure hold of the model. Also lets me move the model in positions that are easier to paint rather then twisted fingers gripping just the base in a weird manner.
|Poster tac. Blick for about 3$|
|Here you can see the impetus for me to give this a try. Noticed that the Burnished Gold was wearing away at the top of the sun's ray.|
|Can also see where black from the robe was also removed due to handling.|
|Poster tac flavoured ice cream cone anyone?|
|Surprised how secure poster tac holds the model.|
|Was a little worried about the light weight of the pill bottle with a model ontop of it. Perhaps it might be top heavy and tip over. Grabbed some rocks from a former bosnai and feels more secure, less likely to tip over.|
|Feels much better handling a model this way. Now to buy photoshop, and laptop that can handle it, so I can put a backdrop to cancel the noise for Lane's eyes.|
If you're having the same issue of paint being rubbed off due to excess touching of the model while painting give this a try or the wooden doles mentioned earlier.
