I varnished him about 10 times with gloss, water based Poly and then use Testors Dul-Coat to flatten the upper, burnt part. The puddle he's standing in is just made from a piece of thin plywood and modeled with Bondo. Once painted I mounted him in position, mixed up some clear epoxy resin and carefully filled up the depression, making sure to get the stuff in and around his boots. Once everything was set I mixed up some clear 5 minute epoxy glue and applied it to the lariat to indicate dripping water. Had to set there and constantly reply the drips until it finally set. Really makes a nice effect.
Hope you like him and there are more photos in the gallery. Comments welcome as always.
