This past week I kicked my painting for next month’s Cold Wars convention into high gear. So, I didn’t have a lot of time for painting Bones. Therefore, I selected the Monk from the Bones 4 Core Set Townsfolk group to work on since it’s a simple figure.
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 hands with Reaper MSP “Rosy Skin”. I then painted his cassock with Americana “Light Cinnamon”, and his sleeves and collar with Americana “Fawn”.
Next, I painted his cape with Americana “Neutral Grey”, and his shoes with Ceramcoat “Territorial Beige”. After that, I painted his hair with Americana “Asphaltum”, and the rope belt with Folk Art “Barn Wood”.
I let the figure dry for a while, and then I gave his face and hands a coat of Citadel “Reikland Fleshshade” wash. When that was dry, I gave his cassock, sleeves, collar, belt, and shoes all a coat of Citadel “Agrax Earthsahde” wash. I let that dry, and then went over his cape with Citadel “Nuln Oil” wash.
When all the washes were dry, I painted his eyes and then highlighted his face and hands with Rraper MSP “Rosy Highlight”. After that, I highlighted his hair with first, Accent Mustard Seed", and then a little Folk Art “Butter Pecan”. I then highlighted his cassock with the base “Light Cinnamon”, and then some of the “Light Cinnamon” mixed with a little of the “Fawn”.
Next, I highlighted the collar and sleeves with the base “Fawn”, and then a little of the “Fawn” with some Americana “Bleached Sand” mixed in. Then, I highlighted the cape with the base “Neutral Grey”, and a little of the “Neutral Grey” with some Americana “Grey Sky” mixed in. After that, I highlighted his shoes with the Americana “Khaki Tan”. Lastly, I painted the entire base with Americana “Mississippi Mud”.
I let the figure dry overnight and the next day I gave it a coat of Americana “DuraClear Matte” varnish. I then 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 the “Territorial Beige”, and then with some of the “Butter Pecan”; lastly I drybrushed it with a little of the “Bleached Sand”.
Another overnight dry, and I sprayed the figure with Testor’s Dullcote".
I’m pretty happy with this one. A simple figure, but a lot of character, and fun to paint.
