|I had forgotten to take a picture of the figure before I started, so here's a shot of the model from one of the Kickstarter updates.|
Then, shortly after beginning, I realized that the buttons on her dress looked faceted, like they were meant to be gemstones; so I decided rather than try and paint them as such, I was going to try and replace them with actual craft gems. So they got sliced off with a hobby knife.
I then painted all the metal bits with Americana "Zinc", and I painted the inside of the mouth with Americana "Shading Flesh". I felt at first glance it looked like her tongue was extended, so I painted it that way with the "Shading Flesh". I put the figure aside to dry for a while, then when I came back I gave the entire thing a coat of Citadel "Nuln Oil" wash.
Next, I highlighted her dress, using the base "The Fang" mixed with Folk Art "Cloudy Day". After that, I highlighted all her belts and straps using the base "Charcoal Grey" mixed with some Americana "Mississippi Mud", and I highlighted the basket at her hip using Ceramcoat "Maple Sugar Tan".
Now it was time for the metallics. I painted the arm bands and necklace with Folk Art "Brushed Metal "Brushed Bronze", and when dry, I went over them doing highlights with Ceramcoat "Wedding Gold". I then painted the head of the rock-pick, the buckles and all the various studs, with Folk Art Metallics "Gunmetal Grey", and when dry, highlighted everything with Citadel "Mithril Silver". Lastly, I painted the 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". When the "Dullcote" was dry, I used Gorilla Supeglue to affix a trio of tiny nail gems to the studs on her dress.
