Marx Customs - Appaloosas
All my current repaints are hand-sanded in the direction of the horse's natural hair pattern for a more realistic finish. They are hand-painted (no air brushing) with brushes in the direction of the horse's natural hair pattern, again for a more realistic look. They are not perfect. Some of the small old scrapes/dings in the models are still in the bodies. Please note that I do not paint over any horses that are in really good condition--the ones I use have mostly melt marks, scrapes and gouges--and a few have broken tails that have been repaired expertly by my husband. I like to think that I am giving them new "life." I do not use a sealant on the paint, but I usually put anywhere from 4-5 coats of paint on each horse. The paint may chip if the horse is dropped or while putting on or taking off your saddles, etc.; therefore, I do not recommend these for children. I also recommend that you don't store the horses with tack on.
