Lego Minifigures 22: "Secret Agent"
I wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of this little lady! Her red bob reminds me of the singer in Republica - remember them? It turns out that only some of Saffron's hair was coloured bright red at the time of their biggest hit, but even so. Dynamite and a golden gun? You bet she's ready to go!
You can even shout it from the rooftops if you like...
About that golden gun. I used a bit of "Pearlescent Tinting Medium" (made by Daler-Rowney in their Cryla range; I've had it for ages, never found a use for it before) mixed with yellow ochre and a few other colours that were lying around on the palette. Highlights and reflections were required, of course, but it neatly solves the problem of how to make a metallic element stand out.
