Looks much better,
Congratulation for the effort of doing all again, with a better result.


But I also understand that the engravor has not given you muh chance to paint a nice face !
In the future, you have two choices:
 1) threw the flat  away before starting to paint , or
 2) file the face flat and paint a face like on a paper surface!

I have had this problem 2 or 3 times, and I chose 2) . 
Today I would select 1) as life is becoming too short for me to waste too much time in repairing what should be right at start.... and too muh choice with other flats ...

Regarding automotive primers, I used the warehouse chain's own brand of Alkyd paint. Sprayed from a distance of 20 cm as recommended on the can, 2-3 layers in all coating the figure nicely without obscuring any details. Quicker than enamels and no danger of metal surface shining through.
I noticed that there is almost no engraving on the face of the monk ... This will leave you some freedom or difficultiies togive him a face !
and can't see the back side, but the litle point on the back right leg of the donkey or horse, is it his tail?


I apologize for the poor photo, the figure engraved by Reibold has a face but not as expressive as an engraving by F. M. Mohr.
Yes it's the donkey's tail.

Hello Casper
Interesting that you used automotive primer, I have thought about it but, assumed that it would be too heavy and obscure the engraving.
Be interested to hear your experience.
Kindest regards

Still work in progress. This time I used automotive primer as undercoating, nowadays I'm passning an automotive discount warehouse on my way to work...
Bought the set second-hand from Scholtz
