This past week I continued working on the group of Pulp Chronoscope figures I got in a trade, and did the Pulp Era Professor, from the Bones 3 "Mythos Expansion: Part 3".
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.
Tweed? Armed with this information, I thought I might be able to pull off something good enough for the game table. However, I didn't want my professor to be quite as sharply dressed as the man in the example photo, so I decided to make a few adjustments to the outfit, to make him look more "absent-minded".
Lastly, I highlighted the book under his arm with some Folk Art "Burgundy", and applied some decoration and a title to it with Ceramcoat "Wedding Gold". I then 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".
