This week I wrapped up the Dwarves Set by painting Dain Deepaxe. The Dwarves now join the list of completed sets over in the right-hand column. This was a rather straightforward figure to paint, and didn't really pose any real challenges.
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.
Next I worked on the metallics, painting the decorations on his loin hanging, scabbard, shield, sword hilt, helmet, beer stein, and beads in his beard with Ceramcoat "Bronze". I then went back over these and added highlights with Ceramcoat "14K Gold". I then did final highlights on his armor and weapons with the "Silver Sterling".
I let the figure sit all day, and that evening I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish". The next morning I flocked the base, and that afternoon I gave the figure a coat of Testor's "Dullcote" spray varnish.
