Ok, so first attempt at corpsing a skelly. I started with a Wally I have from a few years ago ($40 at walgreens), and used the Stiltbeast method

Its not quite done yet, but I'm liking the effect so far. Didn't take too many pictures as I was going through the process, but best advice: TAKE IT SLOW... don't rush.

Soil Plant

Here's my test run of the stain (Not Gel Stain, just basic MinWax wood stain)


Metal Rock

Denim Rock


No dry brushing done yet, just the first coat of stain on the front...
(I don't have the first one done, and i'm already thinking about how I can improve and what to change for the 2nd skelly.)

UPDATE:
Here's more pics, including my second Skelly.

Wood Hand Plant

Tortoise Turtle Reptile Pond turtle Rock

Water Rock Metal

On my first one I just slopped the MinWax on there and didn't look back. I used the normal wood stain, Red Mahogany. Turned out pretty dang good, he still looks juicy.

Yours looks great too. More of a "skin" look than mine.

I believe it is oil based.

I'm finding that with these guys, they have a bit of a barbecued look to them, not sure if that is just because of how heavy the stain was laid on, or what... I'm hoping when I dry brush that it lightens them up a bit... OP updated with new pics too.
