Then, when the ash was dry, I painted his eye. After that, since I felt his skin had come out rather splotchy from using the Contrast Paint on it, I tried blending it a bit with some Accent Golden Oxide. I then used some Apple Barrel "Maple Sugar Tan" mixed with the "Golden Oxide". to highlight his skin.
As I prepared to highlight the loin cloth, I realized I had painted part of what was supposed to be his legs as loin cloth, so I took some time to repaint his legs with the "Golden Oxide" and "Maple Sugar Tan" and blend the areas back into the body. I then highlighted the loin cloth with a mix of the base "Blood Red" and some Reaper MSP "Golden Glow". After that, I highlighted his gauntlets with some of the base "Fawn" mixed with a little Americana "Bleached Sand", and I highlighted his belt and straps with some Americana "Mississippi Mud".
Next, I painted the scimitar, shoulder armor, and belt buckle with Folk Art Metallics "Gunmetal Grey" and then highlighted all of it with some Ceramcoat "Metallic Silver. I then highlighted the hilt of the scimitar and his jewelry with Ceramcoat "Wedding Gold". Lastly, I painted his 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 base. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed it with Testor's "Dullcote".
The Contrast paint really didn't work well on these guys, but I'm generally happy with the outcome. As with so many Reaper figures, the great character of the sculpt really carries the paint job a long way.
