I used whiting for the beard and mustache and I really regret that you can’t see the raised effect. His stubble is made of raised bumps.
This is a little fast, so no fine detail. Close up, you see swipes and wipes. Fine lines, aka hatching, only for wrinkles and hair.
Oh, and thank you also to my sister’s chicken who laid the egg I used!!
