I had time this week to finish up the Crystal Golem figure from the Bones II Blue Translucent Set. I wanted to paint him up like some kind of Ice Golem to use with my ever growing collection of winter themed figures.
I prepped 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 1.5” black-primed fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue. The washer was big enough to hold, comfortably, so I didn’t glue it to a tongue depressor like I usually do.
First, I gave the figure a heavy wash with Iron Wind Metals “Dark Blue” ink with a pin point of dish soap added to help it flow into the crevices. I used a brush I had dipped in water, to help thin the ink slightly.
When the ink was good and dry, I drybrushed the figure lightly with Americana “Salem Blue”, and then went over that with a drybrushing of plain white.
I’m really pleased with how this figure turned out.
