This week I picked another easy one, as the holiday season time pressure has already started to some degree, and I have a number of other painting projects I'm trying to finish up before stuff gets really crazy. So, I did the Ships Captain, from the Bones 3 "Mythos Expansion: Part 3". I didn't buy this expansion, but picked up this figure through a trade.
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" fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and then placed the figure in my painting grip.
Lastly, I painted the figure's integral base with Americana "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".
