Pamela the Pachycephalosaurus Primer and Painting

Time for primer and painting.  Lying your Dinosaur on its side allows you to provide a good protective coating inside the legs.  It is also helpful to ensure a good coating on the underside of the body.  Several light coats are better than one heavy one.  After returning to an upright position, the priming can be completed.

Returning Pamela to her side, I used Dark Hunter Green Gloss for the legs and give the inside a good coating too.  Hunter Green for the arms and Hammered Gold for the top of the head and horns.  I will use Hunter Green Gloss between the horns when I start the fine detailed painting with artist brushes.  This will make the skull dome and horns stand out.  

A band of Hunter Green Gloss for the top areas, Hammered Gold for the underneath, Dark Hunter Green Gloss middle and around the eyes.  I used some scraps of cardboard to create templates for various sizes of spot cut outs for the neck, back and tail.

Pachycephalosaurus from Greek: pachys meaning thick, kephale for head and sauros for lizard.
