Why do we have to buy the Safari giraffes,the Papo ones or even Schleich?Asking Harriet to paint any ugly model makes wonders!It is 100% natural looking and fresh!
Great great job!You gave it the magical feeling! sunny

Harriet, it's a very fine paint job, you have now a wonderful giraffe at the same scale than the Schleich zebras... cheers

And now I must find one for myself and try to do my best albino

EXCELLENT JOB Harriet, you have made a very strong point, one that i already knew, the problems with the paint on the custom models you have made are 100% on the material, look at how beautifully you have painted this figure, the detail, excellent 10 out of 10.

Keep up the good work Harriet.

How can somebody do so much with so little? it is beyond me, it can only be explained by means of natural god given talent.

Gorgeous, Harriet ! Simply gorgeous.

The OF looked like it had a beak, the way that the muzzle was painted.

Harriet does take some incredible pictures, i wish she was closer to my place, i would love for her to take some quality pictures of some of my models, i can only imagine the detail that her pictures and angles will capture, she seems to have a great deal of talent in that area as well.

I can't get over how much nicer it looks. It is still hard to tell that it is the same model. You did an amazing job.

I guess my giraffe could be a small one yes, maybe its proportion aren’t quite right though. Still I think they look good together.
