I prepped the figures in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish- soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them. I then glued the figures to white-primed 1" fender washers with Aleene's Tacky glue. I then glued the bases of the figures to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer's glue each.
I began by painting all the skeletons Black. When the Black was dry, I drybrushed them first with Americana "Buttermilk", then with Crafters Acrylic "Light Antique White".
When everything had overnight to dry, I gave the figures a coat of Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish". That afternoon I flocked the base with Woodland Scenics "Snow" flock. The next day, I sprayed the figures with Testor's Dullcote.
this recent article I posted featuring a couple skeletons, about the quality of my skeletons. While perfectly suitable for the gaming use I intend them for, I've never been a hundred percent happy with them because, as Jici, pointed out, the heavy initial drybrushing obscures a lot of the detail. So, I'm going to work on a couple skeletons for next week, using a method Jici recommends, using a white base first wth a black wash, instead of my usual method of black undercoat with a white drybrush. I'm interested to see how it works for me.
