Painted Guys: The Next Generation


Ruth, my four-year-old daughter, has been very interested in my hobby stuff.  She asks to see what I’m working on.  She especially liked the egg that came the Wyrd Easter order.  So I asked her if she’d like to paint it.  Of course, she said yes.

She helped me wash the model, and I cleaned up the seam lines and glued it to the base.  She primed it with the airbrush (with some help), and eventually we found a time to actually paint it.

I worked on a different model, but Ruth was much faster.  She soon asked for another.  Luckily  I had some random Reaper stuff primed, so gave her a second.  This one she said was sitting on the sun.  My wife suggested glitter for the basing material.

They might not win any awards, but we had fun.
