Help: too much paint on my models face!

Post by lucky-lad » Wed Dec 30, 2015 2:05 pm

So I'm painting a female commissar for my imperial guard army and everything was going great until I tried to paint on her eyes. As the title suggests I ended up putting too many layers trying to fix her time and time again. Minute details aren't as clear anymore and its very frustrating since I had her face down almost perfect before. I was curious if there was a way to strip just her face to restart or what you all do in this situation. I REALLY don't want to strip the whole model because I'm very proud how the rest of her has turned out thus far. Any feedback is highly appreciated, thanks to all who read this.
