This week I completed another figure from the Chronoscope Set: Ape-X. I wanted to paint him to look a little more Victorian Science Fiction than regular Science Fiction, so I planned on lots of iron and brass along with some natural leathers in my color scheme.
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 1.5" 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 the figure had the afternoon to dry, I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish" in the evening. The next morning I flocked the base, and later that afternoon I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.
I'm really pleased with how this big boy turned out. I had originally been hesitant to paint him due to his size, but I realized after I started that much of the figure is simply skin or fur, and in the end it went rather quickly.
