- Base with a black wash or primer
- Wash with Folk Art's Hauser Green Dark (I don't remember if I covered the wings too. Now, I wouldn't)
- Dry brush the green areas with FA's Holly Leaf
- Paint the wing membrane with FA's Tapioca tinted with FA's Hauser Green Light. It makes a light pus color. I did this in two coats. Now days, I might start with a wash of the light green and then highlight with the mix.
- I lined in veins on the wings of FA's Medium Yellow.
- Dry (very dry) brush wings and everything with FA's Hauser Green Light.
Knowing all that, here is the starter picture of what I will touch up on all of them:
You can see the holes in the paint left by the old glue bases.
After touching them up, I decided to go ahead and sand the bases. I mixed Elmer's and a little water and painted it on. Then I dipped them in my basing material (sifted fine sand).
With the glue already mixed up, I decided to touch up the basing material on the Saurus.
There was also one Saurus Calvary that didn't have basing material so I covered it also. After touching the Cold One Calvary, I wanted to glue the riders to the their mounts. I simply used plastic glue and I may have to pin them later if they pop off. I None of this took too long, so I decided to mix up Elmers, water, and FA's Black paint. I started painting and it took a while. But here is what it looks like now.
I meant to just sit down and do a short project but you know how that goes.
