I think I've passed the 24 hour window so I can share my four armed Ape with you.
He is a resin affair from Bombshell miniatures that no longer appears to be available. I took the opportunity to use my Mesh roller from Green Stuff World for his base. I thought the whole roller was one contiguous pattern, but it is multiple different mesh patterns.
As I said in the original post here, I always wanted him purple as an homage to Grape Ape, but had thought about him having whiter fur. I chose not to do that as that is a very common scheme and I wanted his flesh areas to contrast more.
I don't know what happened with the varnish exactly. This is the first problem I've had with Galeria. Perhaps I don't keep my varnish bottles mixed enough because a similar thing happened to my Liquitex matte varnish where it just seemed too shiny. I'll keep you posted on any developments.
