This past week, because I was getting over a cold, and it was Easter weekend, I selected something relatively easy and quick to paint; the X-rack and Hot Iron from the Bones 3 Torture Chamber set.
I prepped the figures in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added and then rinsing and drying. I then glued the X-rack to a primed 1.5" square steel base with Aleene's Tacky glue, and the Hot Iron brazier to a 7/8" black-primed fender washer. I then glued the figures to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer's glue.
I let the pieces dry overnight and the next day I gave them a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. Then, another overnight dry, and I sprayed them with Testor's Dullcote".
