To be honest, I've really dug this character along with Psylocke since Uncanny X-Men Annual #10 came out waaaaaay back in 1987. I think I had a boy-crush on both characters, and the Art Adams artwork really made both err... pop?! Anyhow, this is a very simple repaint of the "gold" variant Hasbro ML Spiral using all Citadel and DecoArt blends. Though this is an awesome base figure I highly recommend, the paint detail was extremely lacking especially on the variant. I feel I truly made her gold. I did several hours of extremely watery black wash over all parts of the figure and accessories (sans the limbs) along with a *very* slight one on the limbs. Once I had the textures the way I wanted, I began painting most of the gold parts with multiple coats of gold blend dry brush strokes. I performed a secondary wash on any areas I wasn't happy with and repeated the gold blend dry brush as needed. Finally, I hit her hair and "ugg" boots with two more dry brush passes in gold-white and greyish-white respectively, then gave her some extra blades and sealed up the accessories with Krazy Glue. Thanks for checking her out!
