    I then usually have a go at what I'm going to do with paint - as a scale paint-job on a piece of white plastic (margarine tub lid), just to see how it looks.

    When I'm eventually satisfied - I just go for it - and paint things quite spontaneously - in freehand, on the painted figure. That's how I did all of these - and it seems to work for me. If I occasionally make an error - I know that I can always overpaint it all - and try again later. jb
