Over the weekend I finished up the first of the Iconics II Pathfinder Miniatures set: Seltyiel, Iconic Magus. I've slowly been trying to create a Wizard and Apprentice pair for each of the 10 schools of magic from the Frostgrave core rulebook, and one of the ones I haven't done yet is the Elementalist type. I thought this guy might make a good fire-based Elementalist, so decided to go that direction with my painting.
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.
I began by giving the entire figure a wash with Reaper MSP "Brown Liner" using a wet brush.
I then painted his sword blade with Americana "Zinc". After that I went back and added highlights to the parts I had painted with the "Bronze", using Ceramcoat "14K Gold". And I followed up that by painting the sword blade with Folk Art Metallics "Gunmetal Grey". I then highlighted the blade with Folk Art "Silver Sterling". Lastly, I painted the figure's integral base with 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 the next day I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote.
