Painting the Foliage
- Please use recommended paints. It's recommended to paint the parts while it's still attached in the sprue.
- If the veins on the leaves are light, make sure the brush is not fully loaded with paint when painting a vein mark. If the brush is heavily loaded with water based paints, it will soak into the paper and weaken it and may even be damaged. It is best to apply the paint by either lightly spray it woth airbrush or dabbing it with damp brush rather than with brush strokes.
- When painting please place paper towel or water adsorbent paper under the sheet. After painting, carefully separates the sheet from the water absorbent paper.
