Wow, that's another story - no more glossy finish, finally some texture, much better expression. That's an okapi cheers

"According to Sir Walter Scott's 1813 epic poem, The Bridal of Triermain, Castle Rock of Triermain played host to King Arthur and a group of fairies. One of the fairies was sent to sleep by Merlin as punishment, when she was eventually awakened by Sir Roland de Vaux. "

...When a fairy sleeps in Cumbria is considered a punishment, Kiki! monkey Sleep

Fantastic work again Harriet! cheers

Looks amazing. There is such a wonderful richness to the color now. Another wonderful repaint. If only Safari could paint them like that.

I really like the paint work you do. Can you please tell me the type/brand of paint you use, to see if I can get some where I live. I sculpt myself but I can't really paint, and I wanna learn.

Thank you! I use Acrylic paint by Daler & Rowney which is really nice quality. I also use Crawford & Black - Winsor & Newton is another good quality Acrylic paint, I don't buy that as it's quite expensive.
