I made this rack for my daughter who has
become a big Fallout fan recently. The picture in the background is hand painted. The caps are printed nuka logos glued to real battlecaps. I dented them up and gave them rust effects as well as other weathering and dirt. They are mounted on three inch wood pegs . thanks for looking!

The weathering was done with some water and a torch, then painted with a water and spraypaint technique.
Its made with the rest of the bag of bones, a skull from Walgreens, and a lump of painted Styrofoam for the rib/chest area. The fabric is washed with tide to give it the UV properties. The face and bones are painted with an equal mix of UV red, UV yellow and UV blue paint. These three colors in UV mix to a whitish shade, unlike regular paint which will turn brownish black. Not sure why, something to do with the UV and the light it reflects vs regular paint and the absorbtion of light. Maybe one of you "smarter than me" types can explain it better. Anyway, the all I need to do now is hook up the strings and it s good to go.
