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 1.25" 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.
the Toto I had already done, (So I had the option to use the pair as some sort of canine Incredible Hulk!), so I painted the entire figure with Accent "Real Umber." When dry, I gave the entire figure a wash with Citadel "Nuln Oil" wash. I then gave him a light drybrush of Ceramcoat "Territorial Beige"
I let the wolf dry overnight and the next day I gave it a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. Then, when the varnish was dry, I used some white glue to glue a little coarse sand to the base. When this was dry, I painted the sand and the washer with the "Bittersweet Chocolate". When the that was dry, I drybrushed the base with some of the "Territorial Beige", and then some of the "Antique White". Lastly, I glued on some tufts of grass.
