Once again I found myself short of time, so this weekend I grabbed the Treant familiar from the Familiars set, and prepped that to paint.
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 it. I then glued the figure to a black-primed 3/4" fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and then glued the washer-mounted figure to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer's glue.
After the figure had overnight to dry, I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish" in the morning. Later that morning I flocked the base, and that evening I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.
