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 brown-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene's Tacky glue, and then placed the figure in my painting grip.
I decided since it was such a plain figure, I would attempt to do some fancy pattern on the dress. The figure appeared to look like it was meant to resemble a Japanese Geisha to some extent, which inspired me to want to to try to do a cherry blossom print on it. So to begin, I Googled "cherry blossom kimono" to get some ideas on patterns. Also, since I had just done a lot of white fabric on last week's figure, I knew wanted to do something colored on this one, and I picked yellow.
I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave it a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed the figure with Testor's Dullcote".
