This week I didn't have much time to paint, so I selected a quick and easy figure to complete: the basic mummy from the Who's Your Mummy Set. I prepped the 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.
After everything had a day to dry, I gave the figure a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish". The next morning I gave the base a coat of Elmer's white glue, and dunked it in a sand mixture. When the sand had dried, I gave it a coat of the "Walnut" paint that I had heavily thinned. When this was dry, I drybrurshed the sand with first, Americana "Khaki Tan", an then Americana "Buttermilk". I then added a little light green static grass to the base. That evening I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.

A couple additional notes. I got to use my NOVA Corp. figures in a game this past weekend, and you can see a brief report on that on my main blog here.
this link. Now the big decision... My current thinking is that I may go into this one ala carte, assuming they offer that option; unless this Bones outing is a lot more impressive than last time.
