Rather than describing how the process every time I post a Reaper Bones miniature, I decided to share it all in one post. I hope that y'all find it handy!

Tutorial – On Prepping Reaper Bones

Thanks for that information. I've had hit/miss results painting directly onto Bones mini's, without using any sort of primer. I don't have any Bones mini's in the queue, at present, but I will keep this in mind for them in the future.

Have you tried the Glass & Tile Medium on other plastic mini's? I may have to give it a try myself. Cheers!

You're welcome! Sharing is how I pay back into the hobby.

It honestly never occurred to me to try FolkArt Glass & Tile Medium on anything other than Bones. I guess I haven't seen the need – I have plenty of other methods that work on metal and plastic. The Glass & Tile Medium gets reserved for Bones. I might have to try it sometime.

I found that Rustoleum primer white worked fine on my Reaper Bones miniatures.

Thanks for sharing your methods.
