Very nice mannequins, where do you get the glass eyes though?

 

Thank you.

 

 

These eyes are custom made for my company, I do sell them sometimes to sculptures though.

 

Or you can buy them here, As far as I know everyone can buy eyes here.

The company is in Germany.

Hi Jacqueline,

 

I would like to see more of your creations! Very lifelike! I too would like to know where you source your glass eyes, they add a lot of realism. I would also like to know how you go about fixing them to the heads themselves.

 

To add to the thread, here is one I finished today, this is Bob, 28th Marines, 5th MarDiv, Iwo Jima. He is a bit tired.

 

Regards,

Stijn

Hi Stijn,

 

As I posted on your thread you did a great job! Maybe you can tell what paint you use for people painting at home?

I'm very happy you posted him here, and still hope that others will follow you.

 

Glass eyes do add a lot of realism to a mannequin, I can't give all ins and outs because I do earn my money with my job :)

But I try to help as good as I can. I hope you can understand that.

 

Regards, Jacqueline

Hello Mrs Jacqueline

 

I had the chance to see your work today :-)

 

I wanted to approach the heads but I couldn't :wacko:

 

I was drooling so much that I couldn't move my feet :P

 

It was slippery :lol:

 

But finally could see them in detail.

 

Definitely amazing work.

 

You're a champion with polyester and hand painting.

 

I know what to put on my next Sinterklaas list :-)

 

Best regards.

 

Willy

Purple helmets,may the Lord of the bikers always be with you.

Hi Willy,

 

Thank you for visiting my website, I need to update but I still didn't :blink:

 

Did you visit this museum, it is so great. They do so much effort on details and the dioramas are amazing. :love: I'm very proud working for them, and other museums.

 

If you see the mannequins dressed it does make a big difference,

 

Thank you for the compliments on my paintjob,

 

 

Regards, Jacqueline :D

Hello,

Yes I visited the museum.

In my humble opinion it's looking good.

But that's just mine :P

The owners did a great job for remembering Canadian soldiers.

I saw some US uniforms as well.

Your John Nissen is looking great with glass eyes.

I definitly will visit it again when the new mannequins will be dressed up.

I will for sure wear my reinforced rigger underwear when I'll see the new wax head mannequin dressed up :D

I saw a preview and almost fell down :rolleyes:

Regards.

Willy

Willy,

 

I do understand you look more to uniforms then I do, You and all others here know so much more about it, I'm just a painter :D

The wax head is great, I'm looking forward to see him dressed completly next time.

The last John nissen picture is from a privat collector, the first one was for the museum, he is sitting in the pub.

I don't know when all mannequins are dressed up again but keep you posted.

I will put some new pics on my website for sure if they are ready. :)

Regards,

Jacqueline

Did you paint him yourself? Thank you for sharing! If you have more please post them.

I panted it my self, the face paint is only done with face paint so that I can clean it off if I want to change it up!

Reenacting and collecting from the age of 9!
