Chris Palmer When this time of year rolls around, I always wished I had worked more on the Christmas themed figures I have collected over the years. So, over the last few weeks, with my seasonal mood increasing, I decided to finish up a few of them.
First I completed Reaper’s “Pack Reindeer”, which has been sitting half done on my painting desk since I got him last December.
I then painted Coppestone’s “Lovely Assistant”. This figure comes in a blister with a Santa Claus figure, which I’ve put on a washer and primed, but haven’t gotten to yet.
Lastly, I just finished Reapers “Santa’s Helpers”; a three pack of mechanical robot ornaments. I tried an experiment with these; painting them first with special Chrome spray paint, and then using Citadel gemstone transparent paints on them: Spiritstone Red, Soulstone Blue, and Waystone Green, in an attempt to given them that lacquered mirror look that real ornaments have. When finished, I sprayed them with Testor’s Dullcote to give them a protective coat, and then went over them again with a brush-on glossy varnish to give them that glass ornament shine. I’m rather plesed with how they came out.
