Psychologist: Bones 3 Figure

Chris Palmer

     This past week I finished working on the group of Pulp Chronoscope figures I got in a trade, and did the Psychologist, from the Bones 3 “Mythos Expansion: Part 3”.
      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 head and hands with Crafter’s Acrylic “Flesh”.  I then painted his lab coat with Americana “Dove Grey”, and his pants with Americana “Zinc”.

     Next, I painted his shirt with Americana “Salem Blue”, his tie with Ceramcoat “Opaque Red”, and his hair with Americana “Light Cinnamon”.  After everything had a chance to dry, I gave his head and hands a wash with Citadel  “Reikland Fleshshade”.  When that was dry, I gave the rest of his body a wash with Citadel “Nuln Oil ”.

     I then painted his eyes, and then the rims of his glasses with Ceramcoat “Black”. After that, I highlighted his face and hands with the base “Flesh”, his hair with Americana “Sable Brown”, and  his tie with the base “Opaque Red”.

   Next, I highlighted his shirt with Crafter’s Acrylic “Cool Blue”, and his lab coat with Americana “Snow White”.   I then highlighted his pants with Crafter’s Acrylic “Storm Cloud Grey”, and painted his shoes with the “Black”.   When the shoes were dry, I highlighted them with Citadel “The Fang”. 
Lastly,  I  painted the figure’s integral base with Americana “Bittersweet Chocolate”.
     I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave it a coat of Americana “DuraClear Matte” varnish.    Then, when  the varnish was dry, I used some white glue to flock the base.  Another overnight dry, and I sprayed it with Testor’s Dullcote".  After the Dullcote dried, I went back over the lens of the glasses with Americana “DuraClear Gloss Varnish”.
     Well, I’m happy.  He was the perfect fast and simple figure to get done during a busy holiday week; and I don’t think he looks too shabby.

    1. Thanks, jnv! I wanted to do something different with the glasses than the standard silver reflection, so I’m glad you like the result. Yes, he does look like he would doubt the existence of whatever evil entity was stalking the group..much to his peril… 😀
