There has been some discussion about Bones translucent figures recently, so I thought I would show off a few pieces that I finished recently. The first ones are invisible adventurers from Bones 3 (I bought two sets): Wizard 1: Wizard 2: Rogue: Primed with airbrushed acrylic gloss medium. Mostly painted with Badger Ghost Tints. Some more intense details with Sharpie (use isopropyl alcohol if you need to remove the ink). Faces defined a bit with opaque Reaper skin tones.
My first transparent mini: I wanted to try painting one of the new invisible heroes from Bones III the other day. This is super simple paint job where I first painted the base, then masked it with a solid coat of Brown Liner for opacity. After that, I quickly painted the wizard with a single coat of a mixture of: 3 drops RMS Gloss Sealer 2 drops RMS Flow Improver 1 drop RMS Wash Medium 1 drop Liquitex Phthalo Blue After waiting a day (I was worried the ink might leach out of the sealer or something if I tried to work with it too soon), I painted the exterior of the base with Rainy Gray, followed by a coat of Brown Liner magic wash. To finish, I sealed the entire figure with a coat of Gloss Sealer, followed by a second coat of Gloss on the wizard and a coat of Brush-on Sealer on the base. The result was a very blue, almost candy-like mini. I'm happy with the result, but I'm thinking of pushing back the ink next time by at least half to get a lighter tint. The wash went on pretty well, but I might also try increasing the viscosity just a bit by upping the ratio of Gloss Sealer. Overall, a fun and easy paint job.
