Barnabus Frost, Pirate Captain: Figure 233 of 266

Chris Palmer

   This week I finished up the Pirates set by painting the Barnabus Frost, Pirate Captain, figure.  This set now joins the list of completed sets over on the right.
      I prepped the figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then I gave it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsed and dried it.  Next, I glued the figure to a black-primed 1" 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.

First I painted his face and hands withAmericana “Shading Flesh”.  I then painted his coat with Ceramcoat “Black Cherry”, and his pants with Crafter’s Acrylic “Bright Blue”.

Next I painted the facings on his coat and his vest with Crafters Acrylic “Bright Yellow”.  I then painted his boot tops with Americana “Terra Cotta”,  and then his beard with Folk Art “Platinum Grey”.  I used Crafter’s Acrylic “Deep Red” to paint his sash, and then used Accent “Golden Harvest” to paint his compass case, key ring, and buckles.  Then I painted his pistol with Crafter’s Acrylic “Cinnamon Brown”.

I painted his compass case, key ring, and buckles with "Bronze".  Then, when everything had a while to dry, I gave the entire figure a wash with Citadel “Agrax Earthshade”, using a wet brush.  When the wash was dry, I painted his boots, pouch, and belts with Black

     Next, I painted his eyes, and then highlighted his skin; first with the “Shading Flesh”, and then with some of the “Shading Flesh” mixed with a little Crafter’s Acrylic “Flesh”. I then highlighted his hair and beard with the “Platinum Grey”, and then with Crafter’s Acrylic “Light Antique White”.   I used Crafter’s Acrylic “Daffodil Yellow” to highlight his facings and vest, and painted his sword blade with Americana “Neutral Grey”.

     I then highlighted his coat with Americana “Burgundy Wine”, and his pants with a mix of the “Bright Blue” and Crafter’s Acrylic “Cool Blue”.  Next, I highlighted his sash with Ceramcoat “Bright Red”, and his boots, pouch and belts with Citadel “The Fang”.   I then painted his sword with Folk Art Metallics “Gunmetal Grey”.  While that was drying, I painted all his buttons with the “Bronze”, then highlighted all the parts I had painted “Bronze” with Ceramcoat “14K Gold”, and then did further highlights with Ceramcoat “Wedding Gold”.  I then went back snd highlighted his sword with Folk Art Silver Sterling".  Lastly, I painted the entire  base with Americana “Mississippi Mud”.
      After the figure had overnight to dry, I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat “Matte Varnish”.   The next morning I sprayed the figure with Testor’s Dullcote.

   I’m happy with how this old salty dog turned out.  And, happy to get another completed set under my belt.  Next up, I will be finishing the last four Orcpoclaypse figures, and then the remaining two Townsfolk figures.
