Over the weekend I finished up the Gruff Grimecleaver, Dwarf Pirate, figure from the Pirates set. After this, two more figures from this set to go, and 36 figures left altogether! :).
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 completing the metallics; painting the parts I had painted with the "Zinc", using "Folk Art Metallics "Gunmetal Grey". I then highlighted the parts I had painted with the "Bronze", using Ceramcoat "14K Gold". Then I went back and highlighted the parts I had just painted with the "Gunmetal Grey", using Folk Art Metallics "Sterling Silver". Lastly, I painted the entire base with Americana "Mississippi Mud".
After the figure had overnight to dry, I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish". The next morning I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.
