Painting Miniatures Update - Final Steps

I have reached the final painting steps on the two special edition mice pieces. Since the last update, I completed the bows, grass and face details. You can see that each color step must be planned out so the colors layer correctly and cut over others. Everything has to be done in order so the pieces come out the best they can be.

Here are some pictures of the pieces up to this point. The last step was dotting the eyes. Amazing how the position of the eye can change the look of the entire piece. The eyes are a very important step that must be done correctly. The last painting step is the dreaded gold work. This is the hardest step of all and requires the steadiest of hand. Updates will follow.

Thanks for looking,
