This past week, because I was getting over a cold, and it was Easter weekend, I selected something relatively easy and quick to paint; the X-rack and Hot Iron from the Bones 3 Torture Chamber set.
I prepped the figures in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added and then rinsing and drying. I then glued the X-rack to a primed 1.5" square steel base with Aleene’s Tacky glue, and the Hot Iron brazier to a 7/8" black-primed fender washer. I then glued the figures to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer’s glue.
I began by painting the Brazier Ceramcoat “Black”, and the X-rack with Americana “Mississippi Mud”. I then drybrushed the Brazier with Folk Art “Medium Grey” followed by Crafter’s Acrylic “Storm Cloud Grey”. I moved then back to the X-rack, and gave it a wash with Citadel “Agrax Earthshade” wash. When I was done applying the wash, I went back to the Brazier, and gave the coals a light wash with some thinned Iron Wind Metals “Orange” Ink to hopefully make them look like they had a heat glow.
When the “Orange” ink and the “Agrax Earthshade" wash were dry, I drybrushed the X-rack with some Folk Art "Barn Wood”. I then painted the Brazier itself , and the little bit of the poker sticking out, along with the fittings on the X-rack, with Reaper MSP “Scorched Metal”. After the “Scorched Metal” had time to dry, I applied a little Citadel “Nuln Oil” wash to the “Scorched Metal”. When that was dry, I hit the fittings on the X-rack with some thinned Accent “Golden Oxide” to try to give them a little rusty appearance. Lastly, I painted the bases with Americana “Neutral Grey”, then when it was dry, I gave the carved rocks under the Brazier a little dab with some of the “Nuln Oil” to help accent the crevices between them.
I let the pieces dry overnight and the next day I gave them a coat of Americana “DuraClear Matte” varnish. Then, another overnight dry, and I sprayed them with Testor’s Dullcote".
Well, they’re very nice. Nothing exciting; but they’re done, and thats a good thing.
