I made this for a the Tattoo Swap. This is the 3rd Munny I have painted and it doesn't seem to get easier.

Back with sacred heart and Virgin of Guadalupe.


Chest with skull and wings.


Front rockin' a mustache and "thug life" knuckles hehehe.


303! (Denvers area code)


Denver skyline


Arms with snake and dagger


Better shot of back


This took me an abnormally long amount of time. I am not blessed with a steady hand. Tell me what you think.

Here is a link to one of my other Munnys.

Ooh I like the snake. ^^
How big is it? Some of the lettering looks pretty small!

I painted a 2.5 inch Qee a while back (if you are interested) and I feel your pain!  I went for big  simple block colours and I still had to redo some of the edges.

What kind of paint did you use? I used acrylics and I found I didn't get a very smooth surface (although I am quite a newbie with paint) - yours looks like it was more successful. Smiley

I think it is 4.5 inches. So it is not very big. The Virgin of Guadalupe is under 1.5 inches and that is the biggest things on it.

I used acrylic paint for some, but DH paints miniatures for gaming and he let me use some of his water based acrylic and that worked really good, plus I thinned the paint with water. But just regular acrylic sucks! Yours looked really good. It is hard to paint anything that small, especially if you aren't used to working with a medium.

Thinning the paint is a really good idea - Why didn't I think of that? XD
Many thanks for that tip, next time I think that would improve the dodgy paint texture on mine. Smiley
