DIY Toy Restoration
Dad gave us a task to do yesterday just before lunch was cooked. He gave us a toy, a dog display to "restore" or "repaint" to make it look like brand new. And I thought toy restoration was difficult but I'm wrong. Repainting an old toy like ours is not difficult at all even though it's made out of felt and some thin plastic I guess. I don't know if we used the right type of paint but it just worked.
What we used are poster paints you can buy from bookstores and some paint brush and that was all. The first thing I did, is to brush out the dirt and dust. Then, start with our first coating of paint...
Here's what it looks like before the first coating. It's really that dirty and old. This little dog display has its place on our van for a couple of years now. I think that's the effect of sun's heat and pollution.
