This resin bust of Jar-Jar Binks comes from MouldArt out of the UK. Everything about this piece says quality. The resin, pre-treated for painting, was not the slightest bit oily. The artistry of the sculpt is without question and the casting was superb. This bust was based off of production art before Episode One came out and resulted in a slightly different looking Jar Jar. I, for one, prefer the look of this bust to the real Jar Jar. This one looks much more serene and less goofy. The way Jar Jar probably should have been. Since there was only one piece, assembly was not an issue. Very little cleanup was needed around some mold lines and that was it. I started painting by airbrushing the whole kit in a warm tan color. I then darkened the mix and gave a light dusting over that. I sprayed a little extra around the top and rear of the head, the ear flaps and the arms. I then mixed up a new color by adding some reds and orange to the tan mixture. I sprayed this on the top and rear of the head, along with the ears, shoulders and arms. I left the neck, face and underarms the tan color. I made sure to try and fade the color gradually as was seen on Jar Jar in The Phantom Menace. I then darkened this color again and added some darker shadow areas in the ear folds and slightly on the head area. I then painted some Pewter Gray spots on his head and neck. These were done very lightly to blend them in. I also painted the eyes with Gold, Brass and Copper with black pupils. I then took that dark reddish mixture and very carefully hand painted all the little squiggles and lines on his arms. This mixture was thinned out and not applied very heavily to blend in well. I think it came out pretty nice. I then coated the whole piece in a very heavy gloss coat to prepare for a wash. I darkened up my red mixture with some brown and washed this to fill in the details and highlight the details. This wash also served to tone down the gloss to make a satin finish to replicate the wet skin of Jar Jar. I then proceeded to paint the shirt and vest various shades of brown and dry brushed them to accent detail. I finished it off by painting the base a simple flat black. This was a great piece that I finished in only two nights. I would highly recommend this piece. It can obtained from MouldArt by contacting them and asking for it.
