I thought I'd make a quick Thursday post for a bit of terrain I just completed. I painted up the Dagon Statue from Bones 3. This figure was added in to the Bones 3 Kickstarter at the very end via the Pledge Manager. I picked it up, since I figured it would make a good terrain piece for Ghost Archipelago.
I prepped the 2 pieces in the usual way; soaking them 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 glued the large section to a black-primed 2" fender washer, and the smaller section to a 1.25" black-primed fender washer, both with Aleene's Tacky glue.
I let the pieces dry overnight and the next day I gave them a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. Then, when the varnish was dry, I used some white glue to glue a little sand to the base. When this was dry, I painted the sand with Americana "Asphaltum". When the "Asphaltum" was dry, I drybrushed the bases with some of the Ceramcoat "Territorial Beige", and then some Americana "Antique White". Lastly, I glued on some tufts of grass.
I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave it a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed the statue with Testor's Dullcote".
