So I have several in my graveyard to paint or not to paint I guess. Was thinking leaving them plan , or possibly flat gray or even flate white . Let's see what you guys have done with yours
The classic technique for a Bucky is to get a small can of Minwax Gel stain in "Colonial" color. Take the Skeleton outside on a warm day, prop him up with a plastic drop cloth below him. Put on disposable plastic gloves, shake the Minwax can and open it. Use a rag to rub the entire skeleton down with the stain. Wait ten to 15 minutes and use another clean rag to wipe stain off, leaving just enough to give the skeleton a slight redish/brown patina and let it pool to a darker hue in crevices. Let him dry outside for a few hours and then hang him up in the garage. Stain usually dries competely within 4-5 days. Results are perfect (as shown in "pre and post staining" pics below) if you use this technique; makes the skeleton look more realistic (authentically aged) but not overdone.
