Treant Familiar: Figure 181 of 265

Chris Palmer

   Once again I found myself short of time, so this weekend I grabbed the Treant familiar from the Familiars set, and prepped that to paint.
      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 it.  I then glued the figure to a black-primed ¾" fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue, and then glued the washer-mounted figure to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer’s glue.

       I began by painting the entire figure with Cermacoat “Territorial Beige”.  I then gave it a wash with GW “Agrax Earthshade” wash.  When the wash was dry, I drybrushed the figure with Folk Art “Barn Wood”.  I then painted the mossy/leafy areas with Crafters Acrylic “Forest Green”, and gave the figure two eyes with Crafter’s Acrylic “Daffodil Yellow”.  This was such a quick paint that I had almost finished before I remembered to take a progress shot!

     Next, I highlighted the mossy/leafy areas with  Crafters Acrylic “Citrus Green”, and then gave each eye a Black pupil.
       After the figure had overnight to dry, I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat “Matte Varnish” in the morning.  Later that morning I flocked the base, and that evening I sprayed the figure with Testor’s Dullcote.

     A nice quick little figure to paint, and I’m very happy with the results.   Let me take this opportunity to wish all my readers a Happy Thanksgiving.  Hopefully over the holiday weekend I will have some time to paint!
