PostSubject: Looking for paint markers or similar to touch up Schleich, Safari figures   Wed Oct 26, 2011 10:49 pm

Well I was wondering if anyone could tell me the best paint markers or something similar that I could use to touch up my Schleich, Safari etc. figures. I would like to get a variety pack with all different colors but I am having a hard time finding "natural colors".

Thanks

Do you want acrilycs, pastels, oils...?

And what kind of animals are you going to repaint? For example, for horses you´ll need earth colors: sienna, brown, ochre, red, orange...

Weell, perhaps I am silly, but I think it is a terrible shame to "touch up" on a model geek

Whenever I see in TV about the value of old stuff, the price just drops to nothing when somebody has "improved" an old item at some time.

Also I get furious if I buy a model and can see that somebody has tried to make it look better, - rather a honest model with scratches and signs of it having had a past as a beloved toy Wink

I know that many of the models are/were made by the thousands, but still.... Wink

Rather make a nice, honest repaint like Sivia suggests Very Happy

I am mainly thinking of a total repaint or a touch up if its really in bad shape.... I feel the exact same way about that

It could be good to keep the original colour. But sometimes some people just like to adjust to what they like & totally up to individual. :) :)

I think it depends... If you are collecting only because you like the figurines, then touching up something is not important. But if you collect thinking of the value of the figurine, then th¡ouching up is not recommended! :)
