I'm going to be painting the Dorothy figure from the Wild West Oz set soon, and I'd like to paint her in the character's classic blue gingham dress. Any hints for how to get the effect of all those small checks? Is it better to just paint it all blue since form a distance the checks kind of disappear anyway? Or is it better to paint it checkered, just with much bigger, paintable, checks? Or is there actually some way to get that speckled look gingham has from a middle distance?
I bought the Steampunk Wizard of Oz set for my daughter out of the Bones 3 KS. Naturally, I am doing it last minute for her birthday Tuesday, the 18th. So, here's the plan: A. Assemble them all on unfinished but sealed silver maple wood cuts using usual building materials. B. Basecoat them with simple but muted colors. C. Apply Sepia Wash and paint as needed to simulate a "colorized movie" look. Here's what we got so far: Dorothy and Toto on a Compass Rose beginning their adventure. The witch commanding her monkey. Dorothy glued in and brick road applied. Lion and brick road applied. Enjoy and stay tuned. More to come.
