Efco Pappart can be decorated in a variety of ways, whether it be with paints, decoupage papers and mediums or pastes.
It's been simply ages since I got my Jo Sonja paints and brushes out so I couldn't resist having a play with this little fellow to see if I could remember what I learnt about dry brushing all those years ago...

Jo Sonja Acrylics:

½ Sure Touch 1315 Possibilities Brush
¼ Sure Touch 1315 Possibilities Brush
2 Sure Touch 2010 Oval Dry Brush
Flat brush for basecoating

4. Use the ¼ brush to dry brush the boots.
5. Mix a little more of the Background Colour in and dry brush the boots again, this time painting a smaller area and not covering the whole boot. Focus on the areas you want to highlight such as the tops of the boots and the heels.
If you want you can apply a couple of coats of Matt Varnish to protect your Wight or leave him 'au naturel'!
