Deal Me In

This Doc Holiday figure was one of my favorite WWX figures, mostly because of the fun I had creating the tree and the bloody playing cards!

One of his abilities was to decapitate enemies by tossing these playing cards at them.  So, I cut up some tiny pieces of paper and painted both number and face cards.  It was definitely a challenge!!

Painting the patterns on the backs of the cards was even more difficult.  Of course, they did not have to be completely perfect, since I was putting blood effects on them.  

It was on my WWX figures that I really got into the "bark and branch" technique, using tree branches and dried foliage to create small trees.

Now that I use the airbrush for 'primer painting', getting color on these pieces of foliage is far easier!!
