Have a look at his special “Surface-Smoothing Technique” description, which was posted on March 11, 2011 on Jonni Good’s website here. Steve used a combination of clay and wood filler to create the mold, then smoothed down the rough edges with sandpaper. The step by step images reveal a lot about his method.
He finishes off with acrylic paints and uses metallic colors to give the masks a beautiful sheen. Finally, he sprays the finished and dried mask with a clear gloss spray to get a great finishing effect.
The horse is so vibrant!
