Three out of five of my vintage restoration models have been completed. I had intended to do a more in-depth story about their restoration, but kept forgetting to take progress pictures! The process was essentially, mix Milliput, spread Milliput, smooth Milliput, cuss at Milliput, leave it to dry. Sand Milliput, mix Milliput, spread Milliput, smooth Milliput, cuss at Milliput, leave it to dry. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Sand, sand, sand, sand. Paint, paint, paint. Clean airbrush for the next half hour. Hair! Pictures!
Anyway, here's the first installment of Call the Vet! and pictures of the new Vintage horse page. I'm gingerly prodding the Pony Mare and Jumping Horse and eyeballing the new box of Milliput, but I think I might take a little break for a week or so while I work on the ID site and some new photo stories.
Thank you everyone! I'm really tickled with them myself. I debated with myself about the black legs on the foal, but I have seen some around that age that look like they were airbrushed and I think it looks so much nicer than the hand-painted legs he had before.
The remaining models are very scary - incredibly soft and stuffing coming out everywhere. I'll try to be better about documenting their progress.
That parrot! How adorable! And I love the puddycats that's such a sad story about the doggy they're absolutely beautiful pets!
Thank you! I couldn't be more thrilled with them. It is a sad story, but he did live a long and happy life with his family and his story did a lot to raise awareness about animal cruelty. After Mr. R's recovered from this lot, I'm going to order The Three Ages of Tobermory and maybe another character from Beautiful Joe.
