This week I painted Berkeley, Zombie Survivor from the Zombie Hunters set. Since I am already half way though this set, I figured I’d just wrap it up this month. I’ll paint the last figure this week.
I began my preparation of this 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. I then glued the figure to a 7/8” black-primed fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue, and glued the washer to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of Elmer’s White Glue.
When the wash was dry, I started by painting all her skin with Apple Barrel “Flesh”. I then painted her pants with Americana “Wedgwood Blue”, and her shirt with Americana “Avocado”.
Next, I painted her boots with DecoArt “Cinnamon Brown”, her belt and holsters with Americana “Asphaltum”, and her hair and the weapon grips with Americana “Charcoal Grey”. The chainsaw housing I painted GW “Blazing Orange”, and the zombie arm gripping her pants cuff I painted GW “Rotting Flesh”. I then added a splotch of Folk Art “True Burgundy” to the stump of the zombie arm.
When all of these base colors had had time to dry, I gave the whole figure a wash with thinned GW “Agrax Earthshade”.
When this wash was dry, I drybrushed her hair with Folk Art “Golden Harvest”, then Americana “Moon Yelow, and lastly, Americana “Buttermilk”. I then painted in her eyes, doing shadows with black, then white “whites”and lastly black pupils. Next I did her lips with Americana “Shading Flesh”. I then added highlights to her face, arms, and midriff with the base “Flesh” color. I also highlighted her jeans and shirt with those base colors as well.
I think this figure turned out well. It was rather a straight forward paint job.
