I have a couple heads I need to root, but it was such a pleasant day today, I thought I would get some painting and baking in. So, I pulled out my Kase Awake that I got free over Memorial Day. I decided to try the primary wash technique and see what the fuss was all about.
Well, I think I really like it. I actually started with a Baby Skin layer that I baked, to sort of protect the vinyl, so to speak. I was afraid of the blue wash staining the vinyl. Anyway, I started with red, yellow and then blue and then I baked. I really liked the subtle color changes with each layer. It seems like it will be very easy to color correct by just skipping a color or adding a second layer of the same color, or whatever. I found it very easy to detect the color in the creases and keep those clean and it doesn’t seem chalky at all, like the light flesh tones can sometimes be.
I didn’t take any photos and I don’t think you would be able to see what I am seeing with my eyes anyway from photos. I think I can already see very slight variations in the color based on how I applied it, pounced it, etc. I think these slight imperfections will just add to the realism of the skin tones in the end. But I just wanted to say I tried it and so far, I like it.
