This past week I painted the Cooper from the Bones 4 Core Townsfolk II set. I thought it was about time I tackled one of the plain ol’ Human figures from Bones 4! 🙂
I prepped the figure in the usual way, soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying it. I then glued the figure to a black-primed 1" fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue, and then placed the figure in my painting grip.
I began by painting his face and arms with Reaper MSP “Tanned Skin”. I then painted his pants with Folk Art “Dark Brown”, his shirt with Americana “Antique White”, and his vest with Anita’s Burnt Sienna".
Next, I painted his boot with Americana “Bittersweet Chocolate”, his hat with Vallejo Model Color “USA Olive Drab”, and his belt and pouch with Americana “Asphaltum”. Then I painted his mallet with Americana “Sable Brown”, the keg with Americana “Fawn”, and his scabbard with Accent “Real Umber”.
Next, I highlighted his shirt with the base “Antique White”, and then some of the “Antique White” mixed with a little Americana “Bleached Sand”. I then highlighted his vest with some of the base “Burnt Sienna” mixed with a little Crafter’s Acrylic “Orange Spice”, and his pants with some Folk Art “Teddy Bear Brown”. After that, I highlighted his mallet and the keg both with some of the “Bleached Sand”, and I highlighted his boots with Americana “Mississippi Mud”. Next, I highlighted his pouch and belt with Americana “Sable Brown”, his scabbard with Nicole’s “Brown”, and his hat with Reaper MSP “Turkey Brown”.
When I was done painting the figure, I used some white glue to glue some fine brown sand to the base. When the sand was dry, I painted it with a coat of Americana “Raw Umber”. When this was dry, I drybrushed the sand with Ceramcoat “Territorial Beige”, and then with some Folk Art “Butter Pecan”; lastly I drybrushed it with a little Crafter’s Acrylic “Light Antique White”.
I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave it a coat of Americana “DuraClear Matte” varnish. Another overnight dry, and I sprayed it with Testor’s Dullcote".
It was nice to work on a relatively simple “normal” figure. 🙂 I think he turned out pretty well in the end.
