After recovering from painting up all of the examples for the new paints, I wanted something purely fun that I could do a bit of experimenting on for myself. I have long wanted to try out doing some verdigris on a "copper" figure. So I started with a young copper dragon but ended up with a piece of terrain.
However, I quickly realized that this might not be such a good idea. After all, what self-respecting dragon would stand around long enough to start to have its wings oxidize. So I abandoned this project and looked around for another. In searching on the web I came across the Bad Moon Loonshire and quickly remembered that I actually had this unopened model in my "box of shame".
First, I had to convince myself that having a copper moon made sense. Even though I guess I could have modeled it as moldy cheese, I really wanted it to be copper to be able to use Hot Commodity. Therefore, once I found out that man has used copper for the last 10,000 years, I decided that grots certainly could use it.
Second, even though I have never painted rocks with Turbo Dork paints before, I decided that this is fantasy and sort of magical, so shiny rocks in Black Ice would work.
Below is a series of photographs cataloging my progress from base coat to finish. It was done completely with Turbo Dork paints with the exception of Stynylrez matte black primer and a few glossy Citadel shades (Agrax Earthshade and Cryptek Armourshade).
As always, I hope that this post gets your creative juices flowing.
