we start with the sanding step, before cleaning with mild soap and toothbrush (the one you usually take for the everyday tooth care :P) ... and then when ready take acrylics and a nice new brush!
To prepare the colours mixing them on a nice piece of plastic new and clean (otherwise the brush takes dirt)
you can just use the cap of ice cream bowl (clean).
• For the boots I used a "Iron Blue
I've desaturated the blue with a pinch of black and a bit of dark blue and some apple green.
• For the silver parts, i've prepared with a white background, which acts as a primer and as background colour.
• On the hair I made a basic yellow
I recommend, when the work is finished to clean the brushes and place them well in a dry cloth or at least to head up them to prevent the bristles get damaged.
