Building Bitzer part 9
Owing to the enormous setback of a broken clicker plus the fact that N-O-B-O-D-Y is selling friction-powered machine guns any more… I’m working on the mask appliance and the heart once more.
I decided to test and see if lamp black would work with the crackle top coat [Thanks to Masters, the only place that had what I was looking for!]. It didn’t, by the way.
The best results were achieved with the kit, which produced a nice, fine crazing with gentle application of the overcoat.
And I’m doing both sides of the mask because I can never remember which side is the left. Sometimes, I am an intense derp.
The mask is now drying in the sun and I shall commence twiddling with blinky lights.
…something I have no truck with…
Wish me luck

My test arena. Spray paint on the left, roller paint on the right
...and with the top coat on. I was experimenting with varying thicknesses to see what worked
