This miniature started badly, but got a lot better. My big mistake was in the priming. I grabbed a can of white spray paint from the garage, but didn’t check to see if it was matte and hit it with a gloss coat instead. At this point, I had two options: strip it or just know that it’ll take several coats before the paint takes. I went with the latter.
To make matters worse, the player whose PC this represents wanted a green dress–green, my cursed nemesis….
But honestly, at the end the miniature turned out great, and the face might be one of the best I’ve done in a while (the joys of painting over white, rather than black).
FYI, the miniature is “Magda Mintsilver” from Reaper. She’s “Violet,” a dwarf fighter who has recently joined the Strange Vistas crew.
