This week I painted up the Snakeman Warrior from the Swamp Things set. 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 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 forgot to take a picture before I started applying paint, so here is the stock one from the Reaper website.
I then worked on painting the gem in his left wrist guard. I first painted it with Crafter's Acrylic "Christmas Red", and then did a shadow area with Ceramcoat "Black Cherry". I then did a little highlight area with Ceramcoat "Opaque Red" followed with some White highlights. Lastly, I painted his integral base with Ceramcoat "Walnut".
I let the figure dry over night and the next day I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish". When dry, I flocked the base. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed it with Testor's Dullcote".
