This past week I painted the Minotaur figure from the Bones 3 Stoneskull Expansion, as I continue to work my way through the remaining figures I haven't painted yet from that set while waiting for the arrival of Bones 4.
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 1.25" fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and then placed the figure in my painting grip.
Minotaur Hero and Minotaur Barbarian); so I decided I would make this one white instead. I also had the idea, since I was painting him white, that I would give him one blue eye just to make him look a little more interesting.
So, I began by painting the whole body with Ceramcoat "White". I then painted all the armor, straps, and the weapon with Crafter's Acrylic "Cinnamon Brown", his hooves with Americana "Charcoal Grey", and his main belt and the axe handle grip, with Accent "Real Umber".
At this time I worked on his integral base, painting it with the "Black". When dry, I dry brushed it with some Americana "Neutral Grey", and some Folk Art "Platinum Grey". Lastly, I painted the washer portion of the base with the "Mississippi Mud".
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 outer rim of the base. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed it with Testor's Dullcote".
