I seem to remember running a cross a how-to for smoothing out a Bucky skull. I'm particularly impressed with Necrobnones scarecrow skull. Can anybody hellp me out?

What do you mean by smoothing? Do you mean the surface texture, or hiding the cranial cut?

In the case of the scarecrow, I started with a 2-piece skull from ACC, that doesn't have a cut. The surface texture was just the natural end result of painting it with acrylics and then clear-coating it.
I use the Buckys with the cranial cut.

Corpisying a Bucky I can hide the cut, but when I want a bare bones look :D to my Bucky I use auto body putty and sand it down.
However, the color differences between the putty and Bucky are somewhat noticable even after staining.
I am interested in how others here hide the cut.
Thanks Necro! I didn't connect that the two-part skull was different from the budget line. Now I remember. It certainly looks a lot better.

BTW, great work on the scarecrow.
