I continued working on the Chronoscope set this week, and completed the not-The Shadow figure, called The Black Mist. With the completion of this figure I am halfway through the set, and only have 5 Chronoscope figures left to do.
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. I then glued the figure to a 1" 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 decided to paint the figure in the traditional red and black The Shadow costume. So, I began by painting his clothing all Black, except for the lining of his cape, and his scarf. I then drybrushed the Black with Duncan “Slate Grey”
Next, I painted his face and hands with Americana “Shading Flesh”, then painted his cape lining and scarf with GW “Blood Red”. After these had had time to dry, I gave his face, hands, cape lining, and scarf all a wash with Winsor Newton “Peat Brown” Ink using a wet brush.
