A Nicky Bott 24th scale figure plus largish puppy
The figure has such a wonderful facial expression – ideal for the addressing of dogs, don’t you think? The kneeling body, herein after to be known as Thomas, is dealing with logs and kindling, and now a dog which is one of many.
Thomas’s jerkin was a lovely shade of powder blue and ideal in softness for such a little figure. I stained the leather on its inner suede surface with wood stain which came through nicely and made it a dusty grey brown.
The dog needs some colour toning applied too to make it look a little less like a blob of Plasticine perhaps – (and that’s my polite version: it’s a little off-putting in shade).
