As I finished the models Becke began the painting. She started with the elephant engine. With large detailed models the painting process is painstaking, taking almost as long as a full sized piece. The base colours are layered on, then the glazes. All of it is done with fine artist’s brushes. We still have a couple of day’s work to do before they are done but a circus train never looked better!
