This past week I painted the two translucent “Killer Fungi” from the Bones 4 Darkreach Expansion. I had been holding these back since I painted the rest of the Darkreach mushrooms, in hopes that I could figure out some way to illuminate them, without having to include a huge base to hide the battery & electronics; but I finally abandoned that plan because I was tired of them sitting in my waiting-to-be-painted shelf. This also led me to decide to start making a concerted effort to work my way through the remainder of my Darkreach figures since I had painted a lot of them already.
When the washes were dry, I drybrushed the conical one with some Americana “Margarita” to help it pop. I then drybrushed the domed one’s tentacles, underside, and roots with some of the base “Apple Lavender" mixed with some Reaper MSP "Breast Cancer Awareness Pink”. After that, I highlighted the ends of the domed mushroom’s tentacles with some Ceramcoat “Opaque Red”.
I let the mushrooms dry overnight and the next day I gave them and their bases a coat of Americana “DuraClear Matte” varnish.
I’m pretty happy with these two fungi. I’m glad I went ahead and got them finished up.
