This figure had been knocking about my painting table for over a year now, and I thought it was high time to get some paint on it.
I then painted her hair with Accent "Mustard Seed", and her club with Crafters Edition "Spice Brown". I liked how the main body of the club appeared reminiscent of a ships figurehead, as if the club might be fashioned from old ship parts. Next, I painted her armor and decorative items with Cermacoat "Bronze". The fittings on her club I painted with Ceramcoat "Metallic pewter"
I let the figure sit overnight, and the next morning I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish". When that had dried, I mixed some tube acrylic Blue and Green to use to paint the "sea water" on the base. I used the thicker tube acrylic so it would give some texture to the water. After the "sea water" had overnight to dry, I painted on some White sea-foam effect using my plain bottle acrylics. That afternoon I sprayed the figure with Testor's "Dullcote". The next morning I gave the "sea water" a coat of Americana "DuraClear Gloss" Varnish to help with the water look.

I'm pleased with how she turned out, though I think I could have done better on her face. I wasn't really mentally prepared for the added amount of attention such a larger face demands.
