Stocky’s Gnome No1 Painted

I reported on the purchase of three garden gnomes from Stocky’s about three weeks ago. Since the onset of winter I have started painting my new gnomes and they are coming up a treat. Here is the finished product although he is yet to be settled into his place in the garden but I think it will be the Avocado Garden for this one!

For this gnome I used acrylic paints. Yellow, red, purple and green are all Solver Brite-Glo paint and the rest is Humbrol acrylics. I am not sure if the Humbrol paints will maintain colour when exposed to sunlight but we shall soon see. The solver paint is definitely uv stable.
