I thought I’d do these guys with Citadel Contrast paint to help keep things simple, and it seemed like an easy way to blend the colors from the blue to green to the white under belly. So, I began by giving all of them a complete coat of Ceramcoat “White”. When that was dry, I gave their lower halves a coat of Citadel Contrast “Apothecary White”. When dry, I drybrushed the lower halves with Americana “Snow White”.
I drybrushed their backs a little with a mix of some Crafter’s Acrylic “Tropical Blue” and the “Snow White”. I then painted their eyes with a mix of Americana “Antique Gold” and Folk Art Color Shift “Green Flash”. When dry, I painted an outer pupil with Apple Barrel “Lemon Chiffon”, and the inner pupil with Ceramcoat “Black. Lastly, I painted the bases with the “Mississippi Mud”.
