I would like to know, where are You going to buy the paints and what kind of paints will You buy. And where have You bought fimo soft? How many pieces of Fimo You neded for this animal?
I would like to try fimo sculpting. I've made a few of bullterrier figurines from clay (I've sold almost all of them).
I would like to try Schleich repainting too, maybe the same paints would I use?

I tried to paint it, but I think it still needs some corrects. I think I need to buy airbrush maybe...
But now it looks as You can see:

I have paints named "Model Master acryl". I bought it in a toy store. But I'm not sure they are best for that work. But they are quite durable, especially when You use special primer.
Fimo soft I bought in Empik. I need no more then half piece of it for one mandrill.

I would be really excited to see you create an Okapi, Kudu or other antelope figurine.

Excellent work!
Wow thank You for your comment!
For this moment I don't know how to do mould. But I can ask sculpture professor from my University.
Selling this thing? It would be wonderful. Maybe I can start a business?

Okapi, and antelopes could be nice topic and big challenge but I'm still not sure what will be my next work. Maybe tapir

Ana,

You have done a wonderful job with the painting. I think an airbrush would be good to use once you're used to it.

Whatever animal you create i am sure it will be fantastic like the Mandrill - you have definately found a talent - work it and enjoy.

Just keep sending us lots of photos of your work! :-)
