This past week I picked another easy one to paint. With it being the Thanksgiving weekend, I was traveling; and I still have a number of other painting projects I'm trying to finish up before the holiday stuff gets really crazy. So, following on the heels of the Ship Captain last week, I did the Ship Hand, from the Bones 3 "Mythos Expansion: Part 3" this week. 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".
