Painting The Skull Island Natives Head

After washing all the mold release from the cast head I sprayed it with gray auto body primer. When it was dry I began brushing on acrylic paint that had been mixed to match (as closely as possible) the latex skin that would cover the stop motion puppet.

When I had the face painted to my satisfaction I gave it a coat of Testor's Dull Cote spray to protect the finish. Finally I put a drop of clear gloss on the eyes and a touch on the lips.
