I prepped the 2 pieces in the usual way, soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them. I then glued the pig to a 1.5" to a black-primed 1" fender washer, and the cart to a 1.5" fender washer, both with Aleene's Tacky glue. I then placed the pig figure in my painting grip, and attached the cart to a pill bottle with a little blue-tac.
Next, I got to work on the cart. I first painted the cart with Reaper MSP Bones "Tropical Blue". After that, I painted the wheel rims, harness fittings, and chain with Reaper MSP "Scorched Metal", and then did the harness strap with Apple Barrel "Burnt Sienna".
Next, I painted the log side pieces, and the corner pieces with Americana "Grey Sky". Then I did a little floral border pattern along the top of the front and back of the cart, and in the corners of the two sides. I allowed all the paint time to dry, and then I gave the fruits and veggies in the cart a coat of Citadel "Agrax Earthshade" wash. Then, when that wash was dry, I gave the rest of the cart a coat of Citadel "Nuln Oil" wash.
Next, I worked on highlighting the fruit; using Crafter's Acrylic "Pure Pumpkin" for some of the pumpkins, and Americana "Tangerine" for the others. I then highlighted the apples with a mix of the base "Cranberry Wine", an a little Crafter's Acrylic ""Tutti Frutti". I also tried mixing in a little Americana "Margarita" with some of them to give them a some yellow-greenish areas. The yams were highlighted with Folk Art "Butter Pecan, and the big Yellow squash with the base "Bright Yellow". I then highlighted the pumpkin stems with Americana "Olive Green". Lastly, I painted the entire base with "Americana "Mississippi Mud".
I let the pig and cart dry overnight and the next day I gave them a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. Then, when the varnish was dry, I used some white glue to apply a sand mixture onto their bases. When that was dry, I gae the sand a little drybrushing with Americana 'Bleached Sand". Another overnight dry, and I sprayed the pieces with Testor's "Dullcote".
