This week I finished up the Dog/Wolf figure from the Bones II Original Figures set. I chose to paint it up like a Wild Dog and base it for Frostgrave.
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 white-primed 1.25" fender washers 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 bagn by painting his legs and underside with Americana “Terra Cotta”. I then painted his upper body with Americana “Neutral Grey”.
When these first colors of paint were dry, I gave the figure a wash with GW “Agrax Earthshade” wash using a wet brush. When the wash was dry, I drybrushed the figure with Folk Art “Barn Wood”
I then painted his muzzle, open mouth, and eyes Black. Next, I added tiny White pinpoint highlights to his eyes, and painted his teeth with Americana “Buttermilk”. Then I added some highlights to his nose with the “Neutral Grey”.
Lastly, I painted the base White. When everything had overnight to dry, I gave the figure a coat of Ceramcoat “Matte Varnish”. Then, the next morning I flocked the base with Woodland Scenics “Snow” flock, and added some fiber grasses. Later that afternoon I sprayed the figure with Testor’s Dullcote.
I’m pleased with how this puppy turned out. I think he has a nice feral look about him.
