Pewter Wall Basket 1/12th scale
A manger type wall basket to attach to your house for an outside display. After painting line with Reindeer Moss and then plant up.
The basket measures approximately 1 1/4" or 3.2cms wide by 3/4" or 1.9cms tall, it sticks out from the wall 9/16th" or 1.5 cms.
To paint the basket first of all give it a wash in soapy water and allow to dry thoroughly. If you are not going to handle it 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.
