I began by painting her face and arms with Reaper MSP “Bronzed Skin”. I then painted her under skirt with Americana “Antique Gold”, and followed with painting her dress with Americana “Avocado”. I then went back and painted her sash and bodice with the “Antique Gold”.
I then painted the wraps on her shovel with Folk Art “Butter Pecan”, and the flowers on the shovel with Folk Art “True Burgundy”. After that, I painted clasps and some of the belt accouterments that I eventually planned to make metallic gold, with Accent “Mustard Seed”. I followed that with painting the bone hanging from her belts with Reaper MSP “Graveyard Bone”, and the shovel blade with Americana “Zinc”.
Next, I highlighted her under skirt, the sashes, and the bodice with; the base “Antique Gold”, then Crafter’s Acrylic “Bright Yellow”, and lastly, Crafter’s Acrylic “Daffodil Yellow” for the lightest layer. After that, I highlighted her dress with the base “Avocado”,then some Americana “Olive Green”, and the fasteners and lightest highlights with Raper MSP Bones “Dungeon Slime”.

After that, I highlighted her belts and straps with, first, Americana Forest Green”, followed by Americana “Festive Green”. I followed by highlighting the canister hanging on her right side, as well as her wrist guards, using the base “Snakebite Leather”, followed by some Reaper MSP “Bronzed Skin”.
Next, I highlighted the bone hanging at her side using Crafter’s Acrylic “Light Antique White”. I then worked on her shovel, highlighting the handle with Americana “Fawn”, and the bindings with Americana “Bleached Sand”. After that, I highlighted the flowers with Crafter’s Acrylic “Tutti Fruitti”, and Apple Barrel “Apple Lt. Pink”.
I then worked on the metal parts, repainting the containers I had painted with the “Mustard Seed”, as well as the assorted buckles, using Folk Art Brushed Metal “Brushed Bronze”. I then added highlights with Folk Art “Pure Gold” and then Ceramcoat “Wedding Gold”. After that, I worked on the shovel, painting it first with Ceramcoat “Silver”, followed by a little Citadel “Mitrhil Silver” highlight. Lastly, I painted his base with Americana “Mississippi Mud”.
