Ok, so this is the next one in my Tcat series, only Lion-O, Tygra and Pumyra to go now. I started off thinking this would be really easy as most of the work was done for me, the leotard and hair seemed to go well. I soon realised covering all that green skin was not going to be a walk in the park. I left the leotard as is because I thought it matched OK and gives her a kinda updated look. I then realised the hair would have to be re-sculpted which was not too bad. The green skin however!!!!, anyway, onto the recipe:

1.Removed She hulk hair and shaved off all unwanted detail (shoes, gloves)
2.Started painting at the joints with GW paints
3.Sculpted around shoes and calfs to make the boots.
4.Sculpted new hair.
5.Sealed all joints with superglue, brush on stuff, it saved a lot of time and works really well.
6.Made arm guard and trims of boots out of foam.
7.Sculpted bangles.
8.Stuck on printed picture of cat logo and painted over.
9.Finished off the rest of the dreaded green skin with GW paint and the leotard.
10.Heaved a heavy sigh of relief when all the green skin was gone and there was no paint rub whatsoever..........Hallelujah!!!!!.

Next up I'm caught between Tygra and Lion-O oh and maybe entering the four horsemen contest so the Tcats may have to take a back seat for a while, I dunno, Should I?, Shouldn't I?
