I am an adult male who is married, educated and has a professional career. In my spare time, I enjoys building, collecting and customizing toys, miniatures and models as a hobby. This is my blog.
This thing is really coming together nicely, mon ami.Painting tiny details like this is, for me, a very intimidating prospect. As you had mentioned in a previous post, brush sizes are important. My problem is a bit different however. When I was younger I had sustained very minor nerve damage (something I rarely mention). The result of this is that I have an almost unnoticeable shake to my hands. Most of the detail work I've done with my customs so far as been equal parts luck and using anything I can to steady myself and do it quick.Anyway, fantastic work you've done and I urge you to keep it up!
Fascinating! Hi Dave, I have many interests including model making but have not been interested in the modern toy market but a lot of the techniques you describe are very useful and can be applied to the things that interest me. I was watching a US TV program, last night, on our Freeview network about a guy who makes a living out of buying and selling toys and he was talking about "boil popping" to customize toy figures - until then I had never heard of it. Great Blog, I will be watching it in future - Thanks!Ralph,London,Englandhttp://ralphsworkshop.blogspot.co.uk/
