This week I also had time to paint the Lizardman figure from the 30 New Bones set. I began by soaking him overnight in some water with a little dish soap added, and then I gave the figure a light scrub with a soft toothbrush and rinsed it. When dry, I sprayed it with Krylon Flat Black Camouflage with Fusion. I then glued it to a black-primed 1” fender washer with Aleene’s tacky glue, and then glued this to a half a tongue depressor using two drops of Elmer’s white glue.
To begin, I painted the front of the figure with Americana “Reindeer Moss Green”; and the scaly back of the figure, and top of the head, I painted with Americana “Avocado”
When these two colors had time to dry, I gave the figure a coat of thinned GW “Dark Green” ink.
When the ink was dry, I went back and added highlights to the front and back using the original colors. Next, I painted the inside of the mouth with Americana “Shading Flesh”, and then I painted the teeth, claws, and the spikes on his head and running down his back with Americana “Buttermilk”. Then I pained his eyes with Apple Barrel “Yellow”, and then added black slit pupils.
Next, I painted his turtle-shell shield with Accent “Mustard Seed”, and his spear shaft with Folk Art “Barn Wood”. The rope bindings on the spear shaft I painted Americana “Mississippi Mud”, and the strap on the shield I painted, Ceramcoat “Walnut”. At this time I also painted the decorative rings on the shield all white in preparation for applying some bright colors to them..
After everything had time to dry, I gave the entire figure a coat of Ceramcoat “Matte Varnish”, and when this had dried I flocked the base. After letting everything sit overnight, I sprayed the figure with Testor’s Dullcote spray paint the next day.
