We're all working on those things too. Trust me, I'm the worst at taking pictures. You're right about lighting though. It's definitely a big one. I've been painting for years and only just ordered a dedicated miniature light this week. Nothing fancy or anything. It should be here in a couple of days. Just been using whatever I could scrounge up. Even so, it always feels good to finish a figure. (◕‿-)✌

My favorite tools are a sharp hobby knife or scalpel and fine abrasives like diamond needle files and plastic sanding needles.  Sometimes I'll put the Bones figure in the freezer to firm it up before I work on it.  You can go over rough areas with acrylic gloss or matte medium or brush-on sealer if you can't get it smoothed out enough with tools.

 

Here's a link to Wren's write-up on many subjects for prepping Bones, including her tools for removing mold lines:
