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 white-primed 1" 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.
My next step was to paint his mask with Crafter's Acrylic "Light Antique White". I then painted highlights on his boots, belt, and gauntlets with Americana "Neutral Grey". Next, I painted all the parts I planned to eventually paint gold with Folk Art "Golden Harvest".
Lastly, I painted the base White. When everything had overnight to dry, I gave the figure a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish" early the next morning. Midday, I flocked the white areas with Woodland Scenics "Snow" flock and late that afternoon I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote. When the Dullcote was dry, I superglued a green nail-art gem to the circle at the top of his staff.
