I decided to make a Wolverine Skeleton with an extra Crazy Bonez Pose and Stay.

Something like that.
I'm using these https://i5.walmartimages.com/asr/17....jpeg?odnWidth=587&odnHeight=587&odnBg=ffffff

They're actually close to perfect for ease and realistic length. I'm also putting these dogtags around his neck. https://www.amazon.com/Marvel-Comic...qid=1506738928&sr=8-1&keywords=logan+dog+tags

I know I've seen threads that would help before, but can't for the life of me find what I'm looking for. What method works best for painting these skeletons? If I use Silver spray, will it stay on pretty good, or should I go gray? Never painted a store bought prop before, so I'm a bit nervous. Any help would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!

Most store skele's don't have any general coatings on them that should impede paint. As for trying to replicate the look of Adamantium. The depiction of the fictitious metal has been a bit back n fourth but it seems to be a kind of a dulled silver. It almost looks like a mix of Steel and Aluminum. You might want to try a few test runs on some scrap plywood or something. I would try doing a few coats of the silver to slowly build up the layers without drip, then dust it with gray lightly and see how that looks on the scrap. tinker a bit and decide which best looks like the metal, then paint the skele.
