Valin Horn is the oldest child of Corran Horn and Mirax Terrik Horn. Like his father, Valin is strong in the Force and was accepted as a student at Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy.
Parts: Head (Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker), Torso (Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker), Arms (Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker), Legs (Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker).
Supplies: X-acto knife, emery board or file, brushes, Testors paints and Testors Dull-Cote.
Reference: I used a drawing of Valin from Star Wars Insider #57 as the basis for Valin's appearance. I then gave him the typical brown jumpsuit worn by students at the Jedi Academy.
Step One: I filed down the sleeves and shirt, removing the distinctive Jedi tunic. I was then left with a generic jumpsuit-like outfit.
Step Two: I used Super Sculpey to change the hairstyle to more closely resemble the reference picture I was using. I cured the Super Sculpey using boiling water.
Step Three: I painted the jumpsuit a light brown. I did the boots and belt a very dark brown. I used the same dark brown for the hair. I painted the eyes green.
Step Four: When dry, I applied a coat of Testor's Dull-Cote
Wish I was there!
