This is a translucent resin casting of Ice.
I painted her using an older technique. I sprayed her with Dullcote before brushing on the white. The Dullcote acts as a transparent primer, giving the brushed-on paint something to adhere to, resulting in a smoother, easier-to-control finish. The Dullcote does make the translucent parts appear “frosty,” but when the paint job was finished, I applied Model Masters gloss, and she shined right up again. (Unlike gloss applied to typical plastic, gloss applied to resin will dry.)
