I began by painting his face and hands with Americana “Shading Flesh”. I then painted his coat, vest, and pants with Folk Art “Burgundy”; and his coat cuffs, collar, and the scalloping under the vest, with Americana “Antique White”. After that, I painted his cape, and shirt cuffs with Americana “Dove Gray”.
Next, I painted his hat and shoe with Ceramcoat “Black”, and then painted his cane and wooden leg with Accent “Real Umber”. I then painted his hair and beard with Americana “Light Cinnamon”, and the feather in his hat with the “Burgundy”.
I then painted all the buttons, embroidered trim, and the fittings on his cane and wooden leg, with Accent “Mustard Seed”. I let this dry, and then painted over it with Folk Art Metallic “Pure Gold”. After everything had a while to dry, I went back and gave everything, except the shirt cuffs and cape, a coat of Citadel “Reikland Fleshshade” wash. When this was dry, I gave the shirt cuffs and cape a coat of Citadel “Nuln Oil” wash.
And that’s as far as I’ve progressed so far. Over the next few days I hope to finish up the figure and have the results to post on Thursday. So please tune back then. I will add the results directly to this post.
