Pewter Watering Can in 1/12th scale
A watering can in perfect scale for your 1/12th garden or greenhouse.
Made in the UK of Pewter it is very nicely detailed.
To paint the watering can first of all give it a wash in soapy water and allow to dry thoroughly. If you are not going to handle this 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 watering can 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 the pictures for detail.
