Pewter Gardeners Boots in 1/12th scale
Add character by placing these by the door of your Dolls House or Garden Shed.
Made in Eire of Pewter they are very nicely detailed.
To paint the boots first of all give them a wash in soapy water and allow to dry thoroughly. If you are not going to handle them much then Acrylic paints are fine, but apply a primer coat first.
If you want a hard wearing finish then I suggest enamel paint, Humbrol make tiny tins for the modeller which are perfect. you will need thinners to clean your brush.
To make the painting process much easier then attach the boots with blue tack or tacky wax to a flat topped jar or lid, anything that means you can hold it easily whilst painting and letting it dry. See pictures for detail.
