A follow up project to my blue groundbreaker corpsing how to, this build is a space critter from Star Wars, but obviously the same techniques apply to a host of other props.

I really like the paint mache technique. I used it on my bugbear prop and skeleton sconces - very messy but a solid base that doesn't need priming or sealing before doing any additional painting.

I'm such a fan of this technique Mr_C. I am not a mixer so latex works great for me, and I like the way you "flew" the prop around after he was complete. That shows a real sense of pleasure with a completed prop. (That's my personal, pumpkin's rule. I always "dance" or "fly" my completed props around...)
