I try to interest my kids in my hobbies, and the one to embrace painting is my daughter, now 7 years old. She still needs a bit of help, but has turned out to have quite some talent.
This owlbear (I don’t know the make, maybe Black Tree Design?) was found deep down in the tin-mountain, and it would probably never be painted, as I had already painted a really nice one from the Chainmail game.
She got it more than a year ago and I was somewhat panicked when she said she wanted it painted in pink… Probably a female :-) Pink with a red wash and brown with Devlan Mud was actually turned out to be rather Ok. I helped her with claws, beak and eyes. It will probably see action against her party in our D&D campaign.
Not bad for a 6-year old! She is very proud of it and really wanted it on my blog.
