I really like these skintones better.thanks john.I used ModelMaster Panzer interior buff (as in WWII German tank interiors) with slate blue-gray pastel shading on both my Frankies.
Well, sinks come in all sorts of decorator colors these days!I know others sometimes use actual sink tones, but I prefer green.
there are color "home movies" of karloff in the makeup from "son of frankenstein"Does anyone know what color makeup Jack Pierce used for the original black-and-white Frankenstein?
And if you want to go back to the source, here's how Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley described Frankenstein's creation in her novel:The color used on Karloff is green grease paint, which was used so that the monster would appear to have pale skin in the black and white film. So, if you what to be accurate to the actual color used, then a light-medium green would work, if you what to be accurate to what they wanted the monster to look like on screen than a very pale grayish flesh color would do.
That's what I was thinking John - sorta a blue/grey pallor.I guess the best way to come up with a "correct" color would be to ask what color a real dead body is (after the appropriate amount of time in the ground before grave-robbing and reanimating).
This is one of the first resin kits I ever built!! Great work on it!!I would start with a color called "Sky" which was a WWII British camouflage color applied to the lower surfaces of aircraft. It has a nice light gray green color that looks just about right. On my Glen Strange Frankenstein I used a base coat of Polly Scale Sky and then added a dark green wash followed by some lighter green dry brushed highlights. Here is the result:
