This past week I also painted the Carnivorous Pudding and Acidic Ooze translucent figures from the Bones 4 Darkreach Expansion 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 superglued the Carnivorous Pudding to an unprimed 1.5"x1.5" steel base, and attached the Acidic Ooze to a 1" fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue.
To begin with, I painted the entire Pudding with Americana “DuraClear Matte” varnish. When it was dry, I then gave the figure a coat with thin Vallejo Game Color “Black” Ink. When the ink was dry, I drybrushed the figure with, first, Folk Art Color Shift “Black Flash”, and then, Folk Art Color Shift “Purple Flash”.
I was starting to find it awkward to paint the pudding just holding it in my hand, so at this point I glued it to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of Elmer’s glue. When dry, I painted the skeleton parts with Ceramcoat “Territorial Beige”, the shield with Americana “True Blue”, and the sword with Americana Zinc. I then painted the sword grip with Accent “Rea Umber”, and then drybrushed the skeleton parts with Americana “Antique White”.
Then, to try and give a corroded look, I painted the parts of the shield and sword that were touching the Pudding with Reaper MSP “Aged Pewter”, followed by Reaper MSP “Scorched Metal”. After these, I hit it with some spots of Accent “Golden Oxide”. After that, I gave the skeleton parts, shield and sword all a coat of Citadel “Nuln Oil” wash. When the wash was dry, I highlighted the skeleton parts with some Americana “Bleached Sand”.
I then glued the Acidic Ooze to a tongue depressor as well, with a couple drops of the Elmer’s glue.
For this figure, like the Pudding, I painted the entire thing with the “DuraClear Matte” varnish. When it was dry, I then gave it a coat with thin “Black” Ink. When the ink was dry, I simply drybrushed it with some Crafter’s Acrylic “Storm Cloud Grey”. To finish up, I painted the base with Americana “Neutral Grey”.
I let the two figures dry overnight and the next day I gave them another coat of the “DuraClear Matte” varnish. I decided not to spray varnish these as I have had some issues in the past with the translucent figures getting a little tacky after a while; so I’m just going to go with the brush on matte varnish.
I’m really happy with how these two came out. And like the Darkreach crystals
I did last week, I think the Color Shift paint really gives the translucents an interesting sheen.
