PostSubject: how do you repaint a schleich...I repaint lots of others..but dont want to risk the life of a schleich!    Sun Jan 30, 2011 4:27 am

I would love how to know how to do this Sad I have 3 of the same model (hanoverian dressage mare) and the one I got when they first came out is very beat up and the paint is gone off most of her so I would love to know.....

what kind of paint is best
do you seal it after?
and if so what is best

I do repaint lots of animals already I did 5 LPS in one day Surprised it was fun! I am going to post pictures soon.
I also did some knights and horses...
I use paint I buy and Wal-Mart and Mod-Poge to seal it...but I dont really like it because It gets kinda of stickey and its not water proof and dust sticks to is and it is shiney..well there is alot I dont like as you can see and I just dont want to risk anything with my Schleich!
any help would be great!!!

thanks lots!

-Emily
cheers

Schleichs are among the easiest models to repaint, so don't worry! I use pastels or acrylics, or a combination of the two. Acrylics are very easy to handle, quick-drying and don't require any special solvents. The ones from Games Workshop/Citadel are excellent for basecoating, being specifically made for painting models.
Pastels have to be the dry chalk kind, not oil pastels, and preferably high-quality soft ones like Sennelier. You don't "draw" on models with pastels, but grind them down and apply the powder with a qtip or paintbrush. The main advantage is the colors are easy to blend, create a smooth color with a lot of depth, and don't leave any brushstrokes - however, you'll need to seal with fixative between each layer and there's always a risk of fogging or sealant drip which is really hard to fix.

I like to paint mines with pastels, and acrylics for details; but now I have an airbrush and I´m thinking about using acrylics for the whole body because I liked the result in my first attempt at using it :)
