Painting tips please !!

Post by bigfatollyafcb » 02 Dec 2012, 21:49

After joining the forum i now have the bug!!
As a Bournemouth fan i never owned a Bournemouth team and not many were produced from what i gather,a couple of HWs and a couple of LWs.
So the debit card came out this week and Subbuteoworld got bashed.
On the way are a Parodi Special edition Bournemouth team(reduced),some AFCB flags,some reduced price Parodi bases and discs and some 2k4 blanks.
I have decided to paint Bournemouth teams only and will start with the present day and work backwards,starting with our 2012 away kit
The idea is to use the 2k4 blanks for kits in the LW era and Santiagos for the HW era
I have ordered dark blue bases and light blue discs,these were a very good price and should look good.
So what i need is a beginners tips,what size brushes,what paint etc
I am a painter and decorator by trade so have a steady hand !!

Humbrol enamel paint and a size 0 brush is all you need for that Kent look.
