    The short story behind this SBS is that I selected Herb as a paint pal. I would like to briefly show the steps here how I paint such small portraits.
    The basis of the painting is the transfer, for this I print out the photo and blacken the back. Then I transfer the proportions with a pencil. The hat and the collar were added freehand. In this picture I only cut out the glasses as a template. The rest is sprayed layer by layer in thin layers. the hair and lights are scratched with glass fiber and a knife. Soft areas are lightened with the eraser.
    Everything was painted with Createx Illustration Colors Black opaque and my CM-SB. The picture was sealed with clear varnish Lesonal Titanium. Also a very good clear coat.
    I hope you like the instructions, I wish you a Merry Christmas!

    This is awesome and I am truely honored and absolutely LOVE IT!!!
    I still have a smile on my face from when I opened it yesterday . Being I run paint pal and always know who is painting for me the only surprise I can look forward too is what the artist picks to paint for me. This one shocked and surprised me at the same time and while I was having a good laugh my wife said I sounded like I was practicing for Santa then I showed her this painting and she just smiled and said see I am not the only one who thought you look like Santa .
    The wife has already contacted the neighbor who makes my custom frames to have a special on made for this one.

    I’d have loved to have been a fly on the wall when you opened this one. Way to go Micha, it is awesome.

    I knew I recognized that face, on a Most Wanted poster on the post office wall. He's wanted for running a scam with bogus donation kettles at Christmas, in front of local stores. lol

    Just joking, That is one awesome piece of art work.

    I had to mess with you. I hope this doesn't mean you won't send me a quart sample of your Santa Shine from the next batch. LOL
