this page we're going to look at the resin figures that have a
like patina to them. They're solid cast resin, just painted with
looking paint. You can easily prime them and repaint them.

thought it was a good sculpture, but I bought it more for the
than anything else. This figure has a green jewel in her right
that's kind of interesting as well. As with most resin figures,
the detail is amazing, and better than any plastic kit could come
is the figure shot with primer. It might be possible to strip
"bronze" paint off, but the primer covers it fine, and
it won't harm
the resin. Notice how much more detail can be seen now.

It's not quite there for me as far as color, but it's a good start.
I painted some of the rocks on the base so you can see the

you could probably do a better job.
had fun doing this one, and I'm already thinking about doing another.
Either way, you can see how much more interesting the
painted figure is over the "bronze" look.
the way, I did change my mind about the rocky base.
The light tan looked to much like the "southwest", such
as Arizona or Utah.
So I repainted it black, with a dry brushed chalk grey to make
it look more like a European northern mountain range.
Something that might fit in more with the Norse countryside.
This is the back of the figure. The detail goes
