I had a question from a reader about what I used to base my figures, so I thought I would take the time today to tell a bit about my basing technique. As I have mentioned in my posts before, I like to glue all my figures onto a fender washer that has been primed with flat black spray paint. I usually use the cheap .96 cent flat black from Walmart for this. I like to us fender washers, because I line my storage boxes with magnetic sheeting, and these washers help the figures stay in place when transporting my figure boxes. I use various sizes of fender washers, and tend to pick the size that fits the inherent figure base best.
So, after I am finished painting a figure, I paint it with a brush on matte varnish by Ceramcoat. This helps protect the figure's paintjob while I'm flocking it's base. To flock the base I used a mixture of three different Woodland Scenics Turf products. I mix roughly equal parts of these into an old metal lunchbox that I use for my basing
