Marx Customs - Flames

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.
