Welcome to Davey Jone's Locker, and another Reaper BONES mini.

He was originally made for a few different classes at Reapercon 2 years ago, showing some basing techniques and how to work with the Reaper clear paints.

Most of this was done with several series of glazes, which are perfect for those Reaper clear paints.  They have a lot of pigment in them, but when thinned with water, they make a fantastic glaze... like inks in intensity, but no water marks, and no shiny stuff either!

When mixed with lighter colors, they are now a wonderful bright middle tone, which is perfect for getting interesting colors in that "between light and dark" zone.

The base has an experiment, and that is chopping up some aquarium plants and sticking them into the cork, etc., and painting them.  It's the first time I have tried to slice up the plastic aquarium plants into something so tiny.  It was an experiment for other current projects!
