PostSubject: Customized Bengal Tiger   Wed Jun 22, 2011 6:17 pm

Along with the Safari ltd WW tiger I bought off eBay, came three other tigers - all of which were pretty rubbish. I was going to give them to my nephew but I had an idea with one and decided to remodel it a little.
So here is the model before the operation Wink

I hated the jaw, so I removed it - and put some clay here and there as you can see in the next few images:

Amazing Shocked

That tiger is transformed from a piece of plastic to a wonderful model, - and what is more, it is a real Harriet-tiger !
You have a special way , just like all great artists cheers

PS I am wondering, will the clay stay attached to the plastic ? Or do you put a glue on also ?

Thank you so much friends! I love you cheers I'm glad you like him - it was really fun doing it cheers
Susanne, yes the clay will stay on the plastic, it dries hard and to make it stick I applied water, this acts like a glue.

This is such an impressive make over... I really like the addition of the bones on the upper back. The painting is even better than the Papo tiger Razz

You really did an excellent job repainting! I know the smaller jobs(eyes, nose etc.) are pretty difficult to do, with that much detail! Only one miniscule suggestion, I think you should blend the hair in the ears(white area) so that they don't stand out quite as much. Other than that a job well done and I commend you on a masterpiece! Next to the Papo tiger, your repaint tiger, size wise, could be a Siberian. Thanks for posting the pics as well!

Thanks Balti! Glad you like it - yes, I'll adjust the colour in the ears, it does look too white you're right.
I've just finished repainting the Safari Puma, I'll post pictures later... :)
