Skin game

It took me a while to remember how I painted detail on my figures, particularly the wrinkles. After I painted a brownish thin line in the base of the wrinkles, it finally came to me.

I use a dabbing brush to apply a somewhat darker shade of the skin-color paint. After that dries, I repaint the rounded crown of the wrinkles, using a brush or dabber, with the lighter original flesh color. I've also lined the eyes. This time I used a medium-brown rather than black.

The jaw is temporarily mounted in the head for show purposes. The tongue needs another coat, then it's ready to be mounted permanently.
