This is a Republican Roman Centurian,who lost his head to an angry Celt. Just kidding. I've had this figure sitting on my work bench for some time, I finally decided to finish him. 1- a) Brushed the armor with a swuede brush. Burnished the armor 000 steel wool. c} Washed it with warm water and Ivory dishwashing detergent,make sure you you rinse well. d} gave the the armor numerous controlled washes of Ivory black mixed with turps. e} When dry I burnished the extreme highlight points with the end of a knitting needle. f} weathered the bottom half of the armor with a wash of raw Umber. Did not apply sealer beacause I wanted a tarnished look. 2- Cape a} Undercoated with Joe Sonja's Napthol red. acrylic paint. B} mixed Cadmium red + Cadmium red deep for base color. c} medium shadow, Cadmium red. d} deep shadows, Alozzarin crimson. e} extreme shadows, Chrome green. f} medium highlight, Cadmium red. g} extreme highlights, Scarlet red. h} while still wet I applied dirt and mud to the bottom or where desired,I highlighted and shadowed the mud and dirt as much as possible. i} Put figure in oven to dry at a low temperature of 140 degrres for a couple days to eliominate the sheen. 3 Read leather painted the red leather same way as the cape,except for the base color I added a touch of allizarin crimson and a bit more of cadmium red deep.
