OK. Since last time, I had some trouble with Octavia... During a painting session, she falled out of my hands on the ground. Face first... So the nose was totally broken.
I tried to repare myself but it was uneasy and I didn't obtain a good result. So, I've sent Octavia to my friend Dominique Jadoul that is excellent for esthetical surgery: the new nose of Octavia is perfect!
Dominique gived me the figure back yesterday, during the Mons expo.
So today I've applied a new base color; testing for the first time the AK Flesh Base spray. Useful and nice result! But due to the odors, better to do that outside when the weather is sunny enough...

This base is enamel based?

It's not indicated on the can; but: "not affected by acrylic, enamel or extreme weathering"...
Sounds at first use similar to the Gunze Mr Surfacer cans...

Can is shorter but cheaper.
Result is absolutely similar and it smells the same odor

Octavia gives me problems...
After a second spray session, I constated a bubble on the right arm. I tried to sand the bubble smoothly... The flesh paint seems to form a plastic coat and all the flesh was removed on the arm... So, it was necessary to remove all the paint... In the process, the nose made in miliput disappeared... Dominique will do the job again for me; but finally my first impression on that AK Flesh can was not the good one. I don't like such a product that you cannot work on it after having been sprayed on the figure.
Best way for me remains to use white base then Gunze or Tamiya flesh as second base...

Topis on hold until new nose will be made...  :-wall
