This past week I painted up a pair of Ghasts to represent some Ghouls for Ghost Archipelago. These figures were from the Bones 2, 24 Bonus Figure Set.
I prepped these figures in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them. I then did some conversion work on one of them, turning his head, and repositioning his left arm. Afterward, I glued the figures to black-primed 1" fender washers with Aleene’s Tacky glue, and then glued the washer-mounted figures to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer’s glue under each washer.
I began by painting the entire body with Folk Art “Grey Green”. I then painted the scraps of remaining tunic on the left one with Ceramcoat “Territorial Beige”, and on the right one with Crafter’s Acrylic “Navy Blue”. After that, I painted their belts with Americana “Raw Umber”.
I decided I didn’t like the plain white eyes, so I added pupils with Crafter’s Acrylic “Storm Cloud Grey”. I then highlighted their skin with Folk Art “Porcelain White”. After that, I highlighted the left tunic with Reaper MSP “Ginger Cookie”, and the one on the right with Ceramcoat “Denim Blue”. Next, I highlighted their belts with Americana “Sable Brown”, and painted the belt buckles with Americana “Terra Cotta”. Lastly, I painted the figures’ bases with Americana “Bittersweet Chocolate”.
I let the figures dry overnight and the next day I gave them a coat of Americana “DuraClear Matte” varnish. Then, when the varnish was dry, I used some white glue to flock the bases. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed them with Testor’s Dullcote".
They’re nothing wonderful, but will serve well in their rolls as Ghouls for Ghost Archipelago. I’m not convinced I like how the milky eyes turned out, and may try something else next time.
