Medieval Madness touch-up examples using acrylic
Please click on the pictures below to get a closer look at
images. The pictures will show the original area with damage followed by the repaired
Here is one of two shots that I have of the "before"
picture of the ball launch area.
Here is the second picture. Hopefully you can see that
there was damage to the left skull, the right shield, and a couple of
spots in the orange.
Here we have a picture of the area cleaned up. I fixed
the skull, the orange, the black around the right shield and some of the
purple. The purple around the left skull was hard and didn't match too
well. It is nothing that will be seen by even the trained eye
considering where it is located.
Here you can clearly see the Knight has a couple of
spots of damage that went to the wood. I didn't want to mess with
finding a decal so I decided to tackle him also. It was very difficult
to match the different colors in the blue and even the darker "shading"
Here is the final outcome. You can see, if you zoom
in, that I had to re-create the entire section by hand by drawing very
carefully with a fine-tipped brush. I also put my piece of transparency
in the picture to show you how I mix colors while looking through it to see how close I am to matching
the color I want. Since acrylic paint dries darker, I try to leave the
lighter so that when it dries , it will hopefully match.
