I prepped the figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then I gave it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsed and dried it. Next, I glued the figure to a black-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.
I then worked on some of his accessory pieces. I used the "Bittersweet Chocolate" to paint his backpack, and then painted the keg with Nicole's "Brown". The book hanging at his side I painted with Apple Barrel "Burnt Sienna" for the Cover, and Americana "Bleached Sand" for the pages. I painted his hair with Apple Barrel "Apple Maple Syrup", and some of the flasks hanging off him with Folk Art "Platinum Grey". I noticed his shoes, and painted those with Accent "Real Umber".
I then started highlighting his clothing, beginning by doing his bottom layer coat with Americana "Sable Brown". Next, I wanted to give his top layer coat a "white lab-coat" look, so I first added highlights with Americana "Dove Grey", and then did more spot highlights with plain White. I then highlighted his utility vest using Americana "Khaki Tan".
Next, I highlighted the corset-like piece he wears as well as the forearm guards with Accent "Golden Oxide". I then worked around the back a bit; highlighting the backpack with Folk Art "Dark Brown", and the cask with the "Sable Brown". I highlighted his shoes with Americana "Mississippi Mud", and then used the color to paint the dagger scabbard hanging at this front. I used some of the "Bittersweet Chocolate" to paint the dagger's handle. I then painted the unpainted flasks, and the test-tubes along his sides, with Crafter's Acrylic "Cool Blue". I did highlights on the flasks I had painted earlier with the "Platinum Grey" with the "Dove Grey", and the ones I had just painted with the "Cool Blue", I highlighted with White. I then painted some liquid in the flask he's holding, with Nicole's "Neon Green". When it was dry, I gave it a wash with Iron Wind Metals "Dark Green" ink. I then reapplied a White highlight.
I now worked on the metallics. I painted the dagger in his hand, some of the buckles on his backpack, and the fasteners on his lab coat, with Folk Art Metallic's "Gunmetal Grey". I then painted the protective armor running up his chest and chin with Ceramcoat "Bronze". I also used this color to paint the clasp and fittings on the book at his side, the buckle on the corset belt, and the fittings on the dagger he holds. I then went back and added a highlight to the dagger blade with Folk Art Metallics "Silver Sterling". I highlighted all the parks I had painted with the "Bronze", using Ceramcaot "14K Gold".
I finished up by painting the figure's white base with Cermacoat "Walnut".
After the figure had overnight to dry, I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish". When the varnish was dry, I flocked the base, and that evening I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.
I like the way this fellow turned out. I think the white "lab-coat" look works well on him.
