Paint brushes, emery paper & figure
The figure is an N scale one. I have only painted about six of them so he is quite valuable. Note that you can see his eyes and his mouth. How many times have you seen those on an N scale figure from this distance? The brushes are well used as you can see but they still do their job. The piece of emery paper has been painted in the normal way on the right with thinned white artist tube acrylic. On the left are dry brush marks. Just the high spots on the paper get painted. This is how the roof on the store in the PhotoGallery was painted.
