Looks amazing! Makes me want to step up my game.

Beautiful work.  If you ever want to do wings like that again.  Coffee filters wet with white glue make excellent membranes.

Thanks for the heads-up on the coffee filters, that idea will be stolen in due course Smiley

 Tissue paper (the crinkly kind you wrap packages in) works well too. Also liquid latex, or latex carpet edge sealer is useful as a top coat/sealer in that you can mix in acrylic paint and you can give it a texture with a sponge when its partly dry.

I dislike tissue paper because of how easily it disintegrates and rips.  But you are correct it is also a viable material.

Thanks for the tips, I have used tissue with white glue in the past, mostly for dead skin, but I find the masking tape is inherently strong, and even more so when coated in white glue, gives the leathery texture I was after.

I continue to be amazed by the amount of detail.
