This week I painted the Nun from the Bones II Pulp Action Set. Once again, I was very pressed for time earlier this week, so I selected a figure that would be quick and easy to complete.
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.

I then painted the cross necklace around her neck with Crafters Edition "Spice Brown". When it was dry, I gave it a careful light wash with the "Peat Brown" ink. I then went back and added highlights to the gun with Accent "Princely Pewter". Lastly, I painted the white base of the figure with Ceramcoat "Walnut".
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 morning I sprayed the figure with Testor's "Dullcote" spray varnish.
(As a side note, I didn't realize until I was editing these pictures, that I had totally forgot to paint the rosary hanging at her waist. I'm going to have to go back and add that in now that the figure is finished.)
