The Black Mist; Figure 173 of 265

Chris Palmer

   I continued working on the Chronoscope set this week, and completed the not-The Shadow figure, called The Black Mist.  With the completion of this figure I am halfway through the set, and only have 5 Chronoscope figures left to do.
       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.   I then glued the figure to a 1" black-primed fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue, and glued the washer to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of Elmer’s White Glue.

      I decided to paint the figure in the traditional red and black The Shadow costume. So, I began by painting his clothing all Black, except for the lining of his cape, and his scarf.  I then drybrushed the Black with Duncan “Slate Grey”

      Next, I painted his face and hands with Americana “Shading Flesh”, then painted his cape lining and scarf with GW “Blood Red”.  After these had had time to dry, I gave his face, hands, cape lining, and scarf all a wash with Winsor Newton “Peat Brown” Ink using a wet brush.

    When the wash was dry, I painted his eyes, then began with the highlights.  I did his face and hands first; highlighting them with the base “Shading Flesh”, then adding a little Americana “Mocha” to it to do some lighter highlights.   I then highlighted his cape lining and scarf, first with the base “Blood Red” then with some Americana “Burnt Orange”. I then worked on his pistols; painting them first with Accent “Princely Pewter”, then doing highlights with Ceramcoat “Metallic Pewter”.  I finished by painting his base with Cermacoat “Walnut”.
      After the figure had the afternoon to dry, I gave it a coat of Ceramcoat “Matte Varnish” in the evening.  The next morning I flocked the base using a sand mixture and static grass, and later that afternoon I sprayed the figure with Testor’s Dullcote.
     I like how he turned out. “Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of gamers? The Black Mist knows!”
