Painting a plastic skull to look like real aged bone

edited January 2019 in Painting
A few times a year I build prop skulls, and I wanted to share one of my recent builds.  I took a cheap white plastic skull, replaced its teeth with acrylic denture teeth, patched up all the seams, and gave it a nice aged bone paint job.



The effect was created by layering various colors of acrylic paints using sponges, and finishing it off with acrylic washes.

At some point in the future I will likely be adding mummified flesh to it and a LED candle with dripping wax on the top to create a display piece.

This was all built and painted live on my twitch channel,
