left to right
#1 plain with carving into it plus pint = no good
#2 was gold Sculpey over = it didn't show anything I turned it over just t see what the scales looked like no cold = no good
#3 gold sculpt and transparent white over that = this could be the winner I'll probably highlight some too.
#4 Transparent white over the peach again much better shows scales well underneath is pearl paint it worked just not dark enough.
