This past week I worked on the Mudcroak, Squog Shaman, figure from the Bones 2 Swamp Things set. I decided to paint him like the unit of Squogs I just did, so he can act as their general, or as the figure is intended- a magic user of some sort.
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.
After everything had overnight to dry, I gave the entire figure a wash with Citadel "Agrax Earthshade" wash using a wet brush.
Next, I highlighted his loin wrap with Folk Art "Hauser Green Medium", and then highlighted the pouches with Crafter's Acrylic "Orange Spice". The rope around his waist I highlighted with Crafter's Edition "Taupe". I wrapped up that area by highlighting the seaweed with the base "Citrus Green". I then moved to the staff, highlighting the wood with Ceramcoat "Territorial Beige". I then highlighted the puffer fish with Americana "Tangerine", the starfish with Americana "Bleached Sand", and the seahorse with the "Taupe". I highlighted his leg wrap with Reaper MSP "Pumpkin Orange", and his hemet with the base "Barn Wood". I then moved to doing the metallic highlights; highlighting the star on his helmet with Folk Art Pearl "Aqua Moire", and the parts I had painted with the bronze, using the base "Bronze". Lastly, I painted the integral bases with Ceramcoat "Walnut".
I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave him a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. When dry, I flocked the base. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed him with Testor's Dullcote". When the Dullcote was dry, I went back and re-varnished his eyes with Americana "DuraClear Gloss" varnish.
