I thought the original Papo ocelot's face is not convincing. I felt like to repaint it but I don't have the right tools and I've never done this before. So I tried to fix it with a ball point pen on the facial painting. I'm not sure how other people feel but I think it looks better. Only one bad thing is the ink is light reflecting.

Thank you for encouraging.
Could anybody please tell me what kind of paint and brush people usually do repainting?

Lovely work! If you're concerned with the glossiness to the pen, you can get a paint-on or spray matte varnish to match the rest of the model Smile

There are many different mediums you can use to paint models, such as pastels, oils, acrylics, and airbrush. I personally use an airbrush but acrylics would be a cheap and easy way to start. As far as brushes you'll be fine with getting a cheap variety pack with some smaller brushes for details and slightly bigger ones to paint larger areas. Basecoats can be done with a small sponge and dabbing the paint on the model in thin layers.

Thank you so much, LeeAnn. The above is very informative. I'm interested in learning it. It must will bring much more fun in collecting.
