a bit of grunging added
I absolutely overdid it here and there, it is hard for me to get the paint as fine as I want, but will cover those with food or other pans :-)
In case anyone wonders: I first washed the metal minis with simple detergent,then I sprayed the whole caboodle (on my balcony, I might add) with spray paint, like they use for cars.Well, it actually IS a car product.
Then I started with acrylic paints. Oil paints will not work very well on this primer :-) I could have used carspray for the yellowish glazing, of course, but did not have that and I was too lazy to go out and buy it...So I simply made layers upon layers of acrylics and lastly used a glossy varnish to give the enamel effect.Only the basket escaped glazing, of course.
