I began by giving the whole figure a wash with very thinned black ink with a pinhead sized dab of dish-soap added to help bring out the figure's details. Next, I painted black the plates of her skirt and "wings" of her helmet.
I then painted the sword the "Silver Sterling", and then went back over all the "Bronze" parts and highlighted them with Ceramcoat "14K Gold". Next, I added highlights to the dress with the basic "Deep Tomato Red", and some highlights to the top of the shield with the basic "Blood Red".
Lastly, I painted the rock she stands upon; first by painting it Folk Art "Medium Gray", then giving it a wash with thinned black ink, and when the ink was dry, drybrushing it with Duncan "Slate Grey". When the figure had overnight to dry, I painted the whole thing with Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish". When that was dry, I flocked the base, and that afternoon I sprayed the figure with Testor's "Dullcote".
I will be finishing a quickie figure in the next day to two, so watch this Thursday for another posting!
