Cleaning the skeleton with acetone…

Saved me a bunch of trouble. I couldn’t do it earlier because I was worried about removing the blue and red paint, but at this point (cleaning with isopropyl, cleaning with Goo Gone, trying to bleach and soak the bones twice to remove the residue etc) I was over my aversion to using acetone.

Residue completely and easily removed.

Also I’m trying to make a stand for it with a curtain rod I have from home and part of an inexpensive rolling chair.

It’s in the works.

I’m studying some old masters. Also attempting to learn more about oil painting.

Due to Covid-19 I haven’t received more clay to complete my ecorche yet.
