Painting Jacklex figures: Day 3Posted: June 21, 2014
I then put each figure onto a display magnet. (These are sold in packs in large office supply stores and stationers.) I use display magnets because they are easy to get hold of when I am painting … and the figures don’t move around on them thanks to the steel pennies I have based each figure on.
I then began the process of painting on the details. The order I did this in was as follows:
- Brown belts, water bottle, and bayonet scabbard
- White haversack
- Dark brown rifle and sling
- Brown face and hands (in retrospect I realise that I should have used lighter shade of brown for the skin areas)
I then let the paint dry overnight.
