This past week I painted the Fruella, Dreadmere Mercenary, figure from the Bones 4 Dreadmere Expansion set.
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 when dry, glued the washer to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of Elmer's glue.
At this point I painted the axe head with some Folk Art Metallics "Gunmetal Grey", and then highlighted it with Ceramcoat "Metallic Silver". I also used the "Metallic Silver" to paint the belt buckle. Lastly, I painted the entire base with "Americana "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 base. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed it with Testor's "Dullcote".
