'Bath Time'
3D Print, 40mm

Really enjoyed putting this tiny bust into a imaginary bathtub full of foam. Washing it all away. For a long time this 3d-printed bust was used as an explanation piece in many lessons, classes and workshops I was teaching. She was once started during a private coachings session, but then abandoned. It was a joy to finish her up with a focus on the skin. My favourite part is the painted cast shadow from her arm over her chest. Hope you like her?

Attached you can see photos on grey background, plus size comparision to a bottle of paint, plus a photo in the cabinet beside other figures to provide a true sense of how the bust looks.
Keep on happy painting!

    Yes, the arm shadow and the water dripping down from the left hand.  What did you use for this water effect?

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Thanks! Glad you enjoy this bath time :) ... Well the water was just a melted piece of plastic, several ones and then shaped with acrylic paste that dries clear.

    This is Great!! - I would never have thought of ‘bubble bath diorama texture’

      Glad that I am sometimes up for surprises :D ... Happy you like it!

    the warm and cold play of the skin tones is great.  lovely piece.

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Thank you, Chris! Happy you enjoy the small level changes I am playing here with! Thank you for taking the time to write a comment and looking at my creation up close!

    Interesting idea with foam. Gold!

  • David KuehnPLUS

    Very nice and creative approach to this. Love how you managed to replicate the foamy texture! Skintone is, of course, brilliant, but I particularly like the way that you managed to get the hair to look wet. Inspiring work, my friend!

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Many thanks, David. I always appreciate your eagle eye view on my creations! Arigato!

    The atmosphere is great. It feels very fantasy-like and almost like a bath in a magical pool. I do not know if you did it with intention, but the blue spots really guide the eye around the miniature and around the photos. The bubbles are just a perfect touch. Another lovely piece.

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Thanks a lot, Štěpán. Glad you like it and I am enjoying your thoughtful comments all over Putty these days. It makes a different reading these compared to short yells of “GOLD’s” and it is very much appreciated to see that you are taking the time to look close. Thank you for commenting and leading as an example!

    The bold blue accents are what makes the piece for me… also it looks like she is bathing in ice-cold water with snow on top of it, which combined with the blues I mentioned makes for a super cool (pun intended) effect

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Thank you so much, Piotr. Makes sense about the ice cold and snow look. Seems “foam” still needs a bit more study to work out in the end! Thank you!

  • Martin Vermeulen (Nighthawk)

    Amazing, out of the box, piece of work again Roman! Very interesting to see such saturated blue at work in a warm environment. I like it a lot.

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Many thanks, Martin. Superhappy that you like her!

  • Andreas P - HanzPetersen

    Great result my friend, really like the bluish hues in the shadow and the skintone overall. Thanks for the inspiring work

    • Roman LappatPLUS

      Many thanks for your gift back then. It took a while ;)
