    I have not painted anything for a bit but when I get back into it I want to clean up some pieces I have started . That said I was playing around with some oils before I quit painting and not really knowing what I was doing I really like the way they looked and the working time was also a plus for me . The below piece was one of the unfinished pieces I have and one of the first I will start on again . Can anyone tell me what colors they would use for the bone and the teeth . I know the helmet will have to be dulled down and maybe add some scratches . And a wash . it's the bone and teeth I will have a problem with really kinda of looking forward to using oils . They might just work for me .thanks IMG_0623.JPG IMG_0624.JPG

    You might try some raw umber with Naples yellow. Sepia can give some interesting washes.;)
