I have two approaches. One is for a small group of figures, the other when you need fifty skeletons yesterday...


1. Prime in white, stain paint with ivory, wash with thin walnut, and dry-brush with dragon white.


2. Prime with rust-colored auto primer, dry brush with ivory, don't look too closely



I had to put fifty skels on the board that afternoon! I'll repaint them when there is time!


The first method has given me good results.Hope this helps.

Here is my two cents on the issue.

Prime in whatever color primer you enjoy using.  I use grey.

Then paint the mini white unless you used white primer.  

Over this put a thin glaze of ivory or a color called sandstone (Apple Barrel Paints).

Then do a wash in black, and allow to dry.  Drybrush over the skeletons with a small amount of a brown color to add a bit of detail.

I start with a Black Primer.  This is followed by a Dark brown [leaving black in the recesses], then a base color over that of Ivory or antique White and a final highlight of white to rap it all up, you can also do a wash of a chesnut or light brown befor the final highlight if you want a dirtier look.
