The figures are primed and ready for me to begin painting. I always like to start with the skin. So in this step, I’ve painted the skin. The next step will be hair, eyes, lips, nipples, & any other dangly bits of anatomy.
I do need to make one minor correction. In the preparation post I said that the Bones figures had no flash. Indeed they did not have any flash, but once I put on my magna-viewer, I saw that some of the Bones figures did have small mold lines. You know, the kind you can’t see when the figure is on the table, but are monstrously vivid in a digital photograph.
I’m painting 6 figures for my 5150 collection & believe it or not, I have 5 different skin tones to paint. The bones figures took thinned paint just as well as the metal figures & so far I’m happy with the results.
