    My question is this: Over on the potaDG, I seen where you said you used nail-polish remover to remove the other two paint jobs. That said, I'm wondering what kind of paint you used, acrylics or something else? I ask because I have a couple heads I think I want to repaint and was wondering about the best way to revove the paint. You can answer here or PM me...

    Maybe there is a better way than nailpolish remover, but it was the only thing I had in the house at the time. I didn't soak the head in it because I was afraid whatever the cast was made of would disintegrate and the sculpt was too beautiful to ruin. I am a newbie to this stuff so maybe it was not the right thing to do and it's very unconventional but it worked for me with a lot of elbow grease involved. Whatever the nailpolish remover did not remove (like the deep crevices near the eyes), I picked the paint off with a very sharp bamboo toothpick. I only used cheap acrylic paint.

    Colonel Taylor is now complete--found his pants and added some accessories, like backpack and shoes.
