This past week I painted the “Rockmaw” from the Bones 4 Darkreach Expansion.
I prepped the “Rockmaw” in the usual way, soaking the pieces in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added; then giving the pieces a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying everything. I then glued the arms and mouth into place using Gorilla Superglue gel. I then glued the figure to a brown-primed 1.5″ fender washer using Aleene’s Tacky glue, and then glued the washer to the top of a large pill bottle with a couple drops of Elmers white glue.
I began by painting the figure entirely with Ceramcoat “Charcoal”. When that was dry, I drybrushed the entire figure with Folk Art “Dapple Grey”. I ended up applying the drybrushing too heavily, obscuring the ride deffiniton on the legs, so I went back and gave the entire figure a coat of Citadel “Nuln Oil” wash to redefine the ridges.
When the wash was dry, I re-applied the “Dapple Grey” drybrushing to the whole figure. I then gave a lighter drybrushing of Americana “Jade Green” to the figure. After that, I painted the claws and toenails with Folk Art “GrayGreen”, the teeth with Americana “Antique White”, and the eyes with Crafter’s Acrylic “Daffodil Yellow”. I then went back and directly painted the center of each leg ridge, and some of the bumps on the body and arms, with the “Jade Green”, to give each a brighter central highlight.
