Hi, it's Kaz again and I've been playing with this cute hippo. He has engraved eyes, nose and mouth so you can give him a good bit of detail.

He was so much fun to do. I've used acrylic paint on him and used a stipple brush for the second coat to give him some texture. I've then just inked the edges and painted the eyes and nostrils. The eyes have been glossy accented to make them shine. He has been in the mud again, just look at his grubby feet!!!
