This week I painted Elladan, Elf Ranger, from the Elves set. This wraps up this set, and so it joins the list of completed sets over on the right. Next up are the Dwarves.
I prepped this figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish- soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying. I then glued the figure to a 1" black-primed fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and glued the washer to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of Elmer's White Glue.
I then worked on the metals, first painting the hilts, his buckles, and the scabbard tip with Ceramcoat "Bronze". I then went back and added highlights with Ceramcoat "14K Gold". Next, I painted the blades with Cermacoat "Metallic Pewter", and then added highlights with Folk Art "Silver Sterling". Lastly, I painted the little ball on the end of the sword hilt with Folk Art "Metallic Emerald Green". I painted the figure's white integral base with Americana "Mississippi Mud".
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. The next day I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.
