This past week I painted the Starship Generator from the Bones II, Expansion Set 3. Since we are planning a Rogue Stars playtest sometime in the future, I thought some more Sci-Fi scenery might come in handy.
I prepped the piece in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying it. I then glued it to a 1" square steel base with Aleene's Tacky glue, and when dry, I painted the base with some brush on metal primer. I then glued the steel base to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer's glue.
I let the generator dry overnight and early the next morning I gave it a coat of Americana "DuraClear Matte" varnish. I let it dry all day, and late that afternoon I sprayed it with Testor's Dullcote".
