This past week I spent most of my free time working on a building for Forstgrave, so I ended up with not much time for figure painting. So, as I saw the days passing by, I realized I better prep a simple figure to paint, so I actually grabbed two, the Ferret and Dog from the Familiars Set.
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 Ferret to a 5/8" black primed fender washer and the Dog to a black-primed 3/4" fender washers with Aleene's Tacky glue, and then glued the washer-mounted figures to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer's glue.
For the Shepherd, I painted his markings and his muzzle and eyes Black, and then used Americana "Buttermilk' to add some highlight areas to the rest of his fur.
After the figures had the afternoon to dry, I gave them a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish" in the evening. The next morning I flocked their bases, and later that afternoon I sprayed them with Testor's Dullcote.
