I just couldn't contain myself having opened the parcel!
Why wait until tonight?
This was the first three I painted - but of course they get more coats of paint.
It took me by surprise as for some reason I was expecting the paint to be thick but they were runny which is a good thing as you don't lose the fine detail.
These were the next three - so a better job - and you can begin to see the head is Egyptian on the right
This covered the white rather well.
This covered well, when I painted it on I did it really thickly - but there are a couple of air bubbles which I had to pop.
Please remember that all these pictures are far bigger than the items themselves, as you can see in a couple of posts previously
So any little imperfections are magnified!
These were the last two I painted and have turned out the best so far.
They'll all get at least one more coat or maybe two if they need it - then the patina.
It's fun experimenting.
Looking back at the previous post you can see the vast improvement on the 'naked' ones
