Westair Pewter: Roman Soldiers a Snippet by Beano Boy

These came in a job lot i won on E Bay,i`d bought a huge box of toy figures for £ 5.00. i thought to melt them down for scrap,but then had second thoughts. If i could clean them up perhaps i`d paint them. A sort of self challenge.                                                                                                              

                                                    So i eyed them up one at a time.

Well for me and my eyes,it was not going to be easy. But easy to do is as easy does,and where`s the bright challenge in that?

I picked out three,and soaked them in vinegar  used as a cheap acid wash.  Which i half inched,Pinched from the kitchen cupboard. 39 pence on the bottle. It cleans Rings up 2!  

The painting went well,so here below are the results of my dip,and splash endeavour.

I also painted three of these smaller ones which can be viewed in Henry`s Eight  Sided Tower ,on this Blog.

                                       Thank you for looking,it`s nice to have your company.
