Painting figures for 1 gauge is not so difficult with good tools. Fine brushes and pens facilitate the work.

Figures have been a trend item in 1 gauge since 3D printing has reached a quality where the fine layers are hardly or not at all visible. This type of production allows all the freedom in the poses, since there is no need to pay attention to undercuts and the position in steel molds. Large series are no longer to be expected in this size anyway.

But 3D-printed figures are generally offered unpainted. If you want to paint them yourself, you have to overcome a few hurdles and, above all, you need the right tools for the precision work on the mini-humans. Part 1 of a series on painting gauge 1 figures.
