This week I painted up the Goroloth figure from the Bones 2, Expansion Set #1, add-on set. In looking at the figure, I decided I wanted to paint it like some crazy wizard decided to cross an Octopus with a Shark. (Crazy you say?! Behold the glory of my Sharktopus! Who's crazy now, I ask!! Muuwahahahaha!) :)
I prepped the figure in the usual way; soaking the pieces over night in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them. I then assembled the model using Gorilla superglue. When the superglue was set, I tested the fit of the mounting hole in the model with a spare Reaper CAV flight stand I had, and was very happy to see it fit perfectly.
I let the figure dry overnight, and the next day I gave it a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. Since this has a slight sheen to it, rather than being true matte, I decided to go with just this as my final coat. I did however go back and paint the eyes with Americana "DuraClear Gloss" Varnish to give them an extra shine.
