Gourls Attempts 77315: Fire Demon

Recommended Posts

I've actually been working on this off and on since my roommate's Bones II fulfillment box arrived. I've never painted anything this size before. It's been daunting, honestly. I also realize I should have painted the pieces separately before I glued him together. Which brings up a question: good way to pull apart pre-assembled Bones? Some that showed up aren't glued all that well and will be a nightmare to paint assembled. I haven't found a good advice source for how to do this (though admittedly I haven't combed through here completely).

Blargh, I posted this from my phone. Should've known it would go sideways. I'll fix this when I get home. Sorry about that!

iPhone? It likes to post sideways because of whatever codec Apple runs in them.

What I always did was import the pics into Picasa then export them again. It fixed the problem. I'm sure it'd work the same for any photo editing software. I just use Picasa because it's free and easy.

I pull all my bones apart and paint them. To do so, I grab the part that I want to pull off and kind of twist it thiiis way, and thaaat way gently to break the bond... Sometimes I end up breaking the piece, and then I just cut it flat so I can glue it back on. If it's necessary, I pin it with a hot paperclip. Works like a charm!

Okay! That's sort of what I was thinking of doing but I was wary of actually breaking the plastic. Should've realized I could just pin things back in place. Thanks!
