This past week I painted Bufo, the Frog-man (or maybe he's a Toad-man since "Bufo" literally means "Toad") figure from the Bones 4 Dreadmere Expansion. Since most all my frog figures are painted like colorful tree frogs and poison dart frogs, I thought I'd continue that pattern here, and paint Bufo like a Red Eyed Monkey Tree Frog. I love how full of character this figure is, and had been looking forward to painting him since the Kickstrater ran.
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.
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". When the "Dullcote" was dry, I went back and hit is eyes with a little Americana "DuraClear Gloss" varnish.
Be sure to tune in Thursday, for another bonus entry on the blog! I'll be posting a couple more of the Dreadmere pieces!
