Well I repainted everything but the dead flesh. I did add different washes over the dead flesh so I guess I repainted everything..

Base coat is Black Metallic to have it look like wet bloody/dirty leather from the underworld. (I got to down I think)

I added a xmas red blood wash at spots I think it would be intense at. The thighs get a lot of touching same with the arms. The side/back splatter is just splatter from ripping out the heart. Since he can not reach that area well its pretty much not smeared much.

I then went & added some black wash to add drying blood with dirt look. The underworld is never clean! =)

I then went around & did a trick to do some splatter in areas I only wanted it done on. Nope I did not use a airbrush & paper with holes. I used a brush then blew hard to hit my areas. OMG I was light headed about 5 times...

After I let the splatter dry a bit I went & added a dry metallic black wash to mix it in with the rest. I did a even lighter wash on the back splatter like I said he could not reach that area much.

I went around & added silver metallic to the pins that was not splattered. Then I sealed the bad boy up.

I then made a custom base with blood splatter effects.

My first blood type custom so let me know what you think. I think for using non bloody red expensive paint the blood actually came out pretty darn good.

I know the pinheads are out of whack I been slowly trying to get them back to the way they are supposed to be. I am tempted to keep this & not sell... Hmmmm tuff decisions!

What is the figure's base stand made of? It looks like a slab of black pavement - the exact effect I'm looking to generate with a street diorama I'd like to make. Any tips on materials, etc. to achieve this effect?

oooh wow, hopw you find it, is the pinhead photo you posted very similar to the figure you're looking for?

Ahhh did they make his? I might of had but sold. I kept a lot of my pinheads & nice mold ones.
I still got to go through boxes I have no clue where I put that real nail pinhead. The work room/display room is such a mess.

You mean the 2nd movie?
I tried looking fast for my metal nail pinhead. I will continue the search after the doctors tomorrow. I just can not stand up for to long or I get dizzy.
I love that blood splatter on the above photo. I will do another with that look since I got the other figures still but one on the far left. The one above I did with blood on the face for fun. I was thinking people can think it was just closeup splatter from ripping the heart out or took a bite out of it. What I was going for the bite type thing. Yeah not totally true to the movies but hey this guy would do it.

Good Job But my favorite cenobite will always be bound II

Oh I was not totally sure if they liked other stuff posted in this topic. I will take some photos of him to post tonight. I been pretty ill lately I been in bed mostly.
A dremel does so much stuff from cuttin material to sanding to engraving. It even polishes stuff & drills. It is a must have tool for a customizer I think. I recommend a cordless one but those batteries do loose charge to fast.
They come with extra tips to do random things check amazon they got some nice marked down ones often.

yeah, please post it, would love to see it and by the way, what's a dremel?

You can post photos, it's your topic, you can do whatever you want :P

Thanks yeah I love the custom just next one I will put metal nails in place of those bad plastic pins he has.
That was the hardest part of this figure. I put him inside a box then I gobbed up a mid size brush held it far away then blew hard. I kept moving closer if it did not get on it really. It sucked doing it since I kept missing the brush & just blowing air to nothing really. It would only do one spray per brush full. I also did less paint on it then got closer for little bit bigger splats.
Its all about the distance really. I used a round tip if that helps. I tried whipping it effect but it got on everything but the figure...
I bought a can of air so now I do not need to get so light headed when I do more.
Also forgot to mention I did tweaking after the spray so it looks more realish. A nice wash also helps on many things.
that sounds so seriously complecated! I have no distance perseption myself, so that would be bloody imposible, excuse the pun.
by the way, got another question for you, since the figure's so small, how would you get the nails in and also, where would you find nails small enough to look like pins?
Yeah it was my first blood splatter effect I just think things through first. I always got multi projects going if I need to think more on one.
The figure is about 7-8 inches tall? They sell very small nails I used to be a carpenter so I knew about nail sizes. You can use a dremel to modify the heads as needed as well.
There is already a hellraiser with metal nails that is retail. That is where I got the idea to do it on these. It is a more detailed one but skinnier/younger version. I am not sure if I could post a photo of it in there thread just cause its for this custom only? If I can let me know I will post a photo of the real metal pin one.

a custom that would do clive barker proud! by the way, how did you make it look like the blood sprayed all over him so finily? I would have thought that using a brush would have gobbed it up and make huge marks, anyways, keep up the good work

I think it was the 3rd one? It was...Hell on Earth! Yeah Hell on Earth, that was it. I going to try to snipe your Pinhead at the last 5 seconds! For the blood splatter on Jesus pose maybe you could make it go from his right hip and go up to his left eye. Another tip for blood, you can use several coats orange red paint then one coat of the red purple paint. It gives it a nice watery look to the blood. One of my bloody customs is a damaged werewolf and I used that look and it came out great.
Dante - Saturday, October 11, 2008
Yeah I never grabbed that line yet. I might have to grab some. I thought the molds were sub par if I remember right. I got some loose mcfarlane leatherfaces.
Purple nice tip thanks will try that next time. This blood looks perfect thank god. I used xmas red with some black metallic wash. I had to go back many times to make it look perfect for what I wanted. The only thing this is missing is a sweet backdrop. I just was to lazy to google for nice horror type backdrops. I rather paint & customize then google these days.
You remember what hellraiser movie he did the jesus pose on? I want to go back & watch to get inspiration for the next one. It has been years since I watched the newer ones & many many years since the old ones.
