This week I also completed The Bags and Jars from the Bones II Dungeon Decor set, as I needed a couple more Frostgrave Treasure Tokens.
I prepped the pieces in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish- soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying. I then glued them each 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.
I began by painting one of the bags and one of the pots with Americana “Territorial Beige”. I then painted one bag and one pot with Folk Art “Barn Wood”. I then painted two of the bags with Americana “Khaki Tan”, and the remaining fifth bag with Folk Art “Porcelain White”. I then continued painting the pots, painting the next to last one Apple Barrel “Burnt Sienna”, and the last one Black. I then painted the contents of the black pot with Americana “Avocado”. I finished up by painting a small design on the fat pot with some Americana “Wedgewood Blue”, and painting the rope ties on the bags with either Americana “Buttermilk” or Americana “Sable Brown”.
I then painted the bases, both the integral objects’ bases and the washers, with Folk Art “Medium Gray”. When everything had had a while to dry, I gave both pieces a wash with GW “Agrax Earthshade” wash using a wet brush.
I then added highlights to everything. I used Folk Art “Butter Pecan” to highlight the bag and pot I had painted with the “Territorial Beige”, and I used the “Barn Wood” mixed with a little White to highlight the bag and pot I had painted with the “Barn Wood”. The “Khaki Tan” bags i highlighted with Crafters Edition “Taupe”, and the “Porcelain White” bag I highlighted with the base “Porcelain White” with a little White added. The “Burnt Sienna” Pot I highlighted with the Crafters Acrylic “Orange Spice”, and the Black pot I highlighted with Duncan “Slate Blue”. The contents of the Black pot I highlighted with Crafters Acrylic “Wild Green”. I finished by highlighting the stones on the objects’ integral bases with Apple Barrel “Rock Grey”.
I’m pleased with how these turned out. I think they’ll make great treasure tokens, as I had hoped.
