Here are some of the toys I have made using your plans. Plans are easy to follow and very informative.
I look forward to any comments and hope to gain some ideas from other members. IMG_0875.jpg IMG_0877.jpg IMG_0875.jpg IMG_0881.jpg IMG_0884.jpg

Great job on the construction of these beautiful items!  Just curious to know what paint you used?  Are the pieces painted before assembly?  I would think so... but I am a novice.

Thank you!

Hi Valery
Thanks for your response, The paint I use is acrylic water based. paint. It is a cheap paint at approx.2 Euro for 200ml. I mix my own shades and try to paint obscure areas before construction. The joy of seeing a toy transformed by colours makes it all worthwhile. The toys are all brush painted except for a final coat of clear gloss finish. I have only been making toys for 8 months so still learning and seeking help from others. All toys are made from reclaimed construction timber offcuts from my sons building company.
