Memorial for a Friend

Thanksgiving is the first anniversary of an old friend’s passing, so I wanted to do a project to memorialize him. I’m going to paint a new copy of an old mini of mine that he had painted over twenty years ago.

Here’s his paintjob. In his defense, it was a quick paint job and we didn’t know about thinning paints or layering…and he was working with a model that was already more than ten years old at the time and made of lead so much of the detail was gone. But it’s one of the few I have and was able to track down a new cast, so it’s what I’m going with for this year’s memorial.


And mine, primed and washed:
