This past week I also painted the Sage from the Bones 4 Core Townsfolk II set.
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 robes in Americana “Fawn”, and then painting his face and hands with Reaper MSP “Rosy Skin”. After that, I painted his hood and cape with Americana “Light Cinnamon”.
Next, I painted the stripe going up the front of the robes with Americana “True Blue”, and his belt with Folk Art “Dark Brown”. I then painted the bag tied on to his belt with Reaper MSP HD “Umber Brown”, and the pouch hanging from the belt with Reaper MSP HD “Golden Brown”. After that, I painted his quill with Crafter’s Acrylic “Storm Cloud Grey”, and his shoes with Folk Art “Real Brown”.
I then painted his scrolls, some with Americana “Antique White”, and some with Americana “Bleached Sand”, and I painted his glasses with Accent “Mustard Seed”. Then, after the figure had a while to dry, I gave his face and hands a coat of Citadel “Reikland Fleshshade” wash. When the wash was dry, I then gave the rest of the figure a coat of Citadel Agrax Earthsahde" wash.
When the washes were dry, I painted his eyes (A real challenge under the hood and behind the glasses!) I then shaded and highlighted his skin using various mixes of the base “Rosy Skin” along with “Rosy Shadow” and Rosy Highlight". I next painted his glassed with Ceramcoat “14K Gold”, then filled where the lenses would be with some of the “Rosy Shadow”, and then added highlights with Americana “Snow White”. I then highlighted the blue stripe on his robes using the base “True Blue” mixed with a little Ceramcoat “Denim Blue”, and afterwards highlighted the robes themselves with a mix of the base “Fawn” mixed with some of the “Bleached Sand”.
Next, I highlighted his cape and hood with the base “Light Cinnamon”, and some Americana “Sable Brown”, and I highlighted his belt with Folk Art “Teddy Bear Brown”. I then highlighted his shoes with Reaper MSP “Turkey Brown”, and the pouch on his belt with the “Mustard Seed”. After that, I highlighted the scrolls with the “Bleached Sand”, and Crafter’s Acrylic “Light Antique White”, and I highlighted the feather with the “Snow White”.
When I was done painting the figure, I used some white glue to glue some fine 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 of the “Bleached Sand”.
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".
Another townsperson done; many more to go! The eyes under a hood, and behind glasses, were a real challenge!
