First off, let me say "Happy New Year!" to all my readers. Secondly, let me apologize for the two week delay in getting anything posted. As I said on the 29th, I had a very busy holiday schedule, and then a stomach bug came along last weekend to squash any attempts to get something posted last Monday. Anyhow, I've been back at the painting table now, and this week I finished up Anirion, the Wood Elf Wizard, from the Elves set.
The completion of this figure puts me on the doorstep of the halfway mark, so be sure to tune in next week for my halfway mark celebration figure. :)
I prepped this figure in the usual way; soaking in water with a bit of dish soap added, giving a gentle scrub with an old soft toothbrush, then rinsing and drying. I then glued it to 1" fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and then glued the washer to a tongue depressor with a couple small dabs of Elmer's white glue, for ease of handling during painting.
I let the figure sit overnight, and the next morning I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish". Later that afternoon I flocked the base, using Woodland Scenics snow flocking, and added some dry grasses with a bit of unraveled twine. The next day I gave him a coat of Testor's "Dullcote" spray varnish.
