Still resting... and starting to paint

I can seat a lot more now. I'm starting to dabble into real miniatures and got pumped up since my Wrath of kings arrived. I will post pics of the unboxing

The little painting I have done was to paint a Link Amiibo to change the color of the clothes.

Here is a little walkthru on how I did it, The first step was to cover the base and crystal stick that helps the figure to stand. I proceeded to spray the amiibo with Dullcote, this way it worked like a primer, letting me paint the areas I wanted, but it left what I did not want to paint visible.

Once the miniature has been painted, and dried it has to be sprayed with Dullcote or gloss to protect the work on the mini. The drying step should be around 1-2 hours average before you seal. The extra drying is to minimize the possibility of frost from the Dullcote. Once you are done, remove the base coer and you will have the figurine the way you want.

I learned the dullcote trick from a youtuber Teri Litorco from Geek and Sudry Vlogs. Here is a ink to her to the video where she repaints an amiibo (subscribe):
