I couldn't afford those guys but wanted to tell you how beautiful they are! How do you repaint them? I've wanted to do this with some of my Breyers, but don't know where to start...

Thank you very much. It's time consuming as all heck. You have to strip the original paint, sand down seams, prime them, and then I use a combination of acrylic paints and pastels to work on them. It's a lot of fun!

Just wanted to add that I've seen TinRoses's work in the flesh and it is super baby-butt smooth, detailed to high heaven, and just STUNNING!

Unfortunately I can't afford anything either otherwise I'd be snapping up a few of these beauties myself.

Best of luck with their sales!

Do you use brushes, or some other technique, like air brushing? Sorry for hijacking your thread, haha.

TinRoses 07-25-2010 12:59 PM

No these are all done by hand with brushes. Air brushing you lose a lot of detail and it gets blurry.
