This week I finished up the remaining figure from the Half-Sized Heroes set: Balto Burrowell, Gnome Wizard. This set now joins the list of completed sets over on the right.
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 then painted some of the buttons on his clothing, his hair adornments, and some of the buckles n his belts and the fittings on his large pouch with Ceramcoat "Bronze". I then went back and highlighted these with Ceramcoat "14K Gold". Lastly, I painted his integral base with Ceramcoat "Walnut".
I let the figure dry all day, and before I went to bed I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish". The next morning I flocked the base, and later that afternoon I sprayed it with Testor's "Dullcote".
