This past week I painted Herryk, Dwarf Cleric, from the Bones 2 Heroes I set. I was continuing to mess around with the clear weapons sprue, like I did on Kristianna a couple weeks ago; and on this guy I decided to replace his hammer with a new clear top. I was thinking I'd try to paint it with clear green and make it like some sort of magic Emerald Hammer.

I then drilled a hole in the top of the dwarf's right hand to insert the clear hammer head into. When I was satisfied with the hole, and the fit of the handle into it, I glued it in place with some Gorilla Super Glue. I then glued the figure to a black-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and then placed the figure in my painting grip.
It was now time to finish things up by painting the clear hammer head. For this I used some clear green paint I got a while back in a hobby store clearance sale: Tamiya Color "Clear Green".
Lastly, I painted the figure's integral base with the "Bittersweet Chocolate".
I let the figure 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 flock the base. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed it with Testor's Dullcote". After the Dullcote dried, I went back over the emerald hammer head with Americana "DuraClear Gloss Varnish"
