This week I also finished up the Mushroom King and Mushroom Men from the Bones II Expansion Set I. I decided to paint them all at one time, since they all were getting the exact same paint scheme.
I prepped the figures in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish- soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them. I then glued the figures to black-primed fender washers with Aleene's Tacky glue; 1.5" for the King, 1.25" for the middle-sized mushroom, and 1" for the smallest. When the glue was dry, I glued the figures to a tongue depressor with a couple drops each of the Elmer's glue.
Continuing, I did highlights on the staff itself with the base "Mississippi Mud", and the shelf mushrooms on their backs with the base "Apple Parchment". I finished off with adding tiny dots, using Apple Barrel "Apple Scotch Blue", to the mushrooms I had painted with the "Mustard Seed" on the Kings staff ; and then lastly, giving each mushroom a set of beady Black eyes. I painted the figures' white integral bases with Ceramcoat "Walnut"
I let the figures sit all day, and that evening I gave them a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish". The next morning I flocked the bases, and that afternoon I gave the figures a coat of Testor's "Dullcote" spray varnish.
