First Figurine Painting [2Y4M]

We walked pass this figurine painting area in CT mall when Angel spotted the kids tables and chairs at the side and refused to make a move! The shop assistance came forward and show us the choice of figurines that we can buy and paint on the spot but Angel’s grandma smiles and told him politely,

“I don’t think she knows how to do it yet ….. still too young!”

and hesitated in getting Angel the figurine. But since Angel doesn’t want to make a move, it’s not that nice that we let her play there without getting anything from the shop so I decided to get the smallest figurine for her just for fun. For worst, I am going to do the painting myself then :P I asked Angel to choose so she pointed at the sheep.

^ ^ Right: Waited anxiously for her turn

The shop assistant is so kind enough to help Angel set up the colour palette with some colours and when he wanted to ‘help’ Angel with her painting further, our naughty Angel actually started to wail saying

“不要(don’t want) ~~ 不要(don’t want) ~~”


pushing the shop assistant’s hand away and signaling him to leave her alone instead *laugh* Kids~~!!!

^ ^ Angel at work!

And then she makes her first stroke on the sheep and she giggled happily then her second stroke, she giggle even more! She is really happy and we were totally surprised that Angel could actually do the water colour painting very well despite that's her very first encounter with water colour!! *surprise* Then half way through, we try to instruct her to paint the face of the sheep and she could follow our verbal instructions very well too and requested for “Yellow ah~~ ” for the sheep's face *another surprise* We are laughing unbelievably + still can’t believe that Angel could actually painted the figurine with minimum assistance (but we help washing her brush) and complete the entire figurine all by herself.

^ ^ Left: She looks so concentrated :)
^ ^ Right: Painting the 'hair' on the head of the sheep

After she was done, I just quickly do some white outline for her (without altering any colour that she painted), painted the leg of the rainbow sheep black and also do the necessary features on the sheep’s face. When I handed the figurine to the shop assistance for the final shine spraying, he was amazed too and told me “Oh, that’s pretty good!!”

When Angel grandma finally saw the final outcome of the figurine, she asked “Eh, how come it’s becoming so pretty already after the shiny spray??” and I just smile. Then suddenly she said, “Then tomorrow we could bring her to do the large one again loh …..” Hahahaha …. Who is the one saying that Angel is still too young for the figurine painting initially? *giggle*

I do think that the rainbow sheep looks very nice after the shinny spray :) Sometimes I am pretty amazed by what a young toddler is able to perform at such young age :) I am glad that Angel enjoyed the painting process so much which is priceless to me and now we have Angel’s first Happy Rainbow Sheep sitting on our computer desk :)

This is the first time I know about figurine painting. Is that means paint the water colour on a figure?

I noticed that Angels'hands were very clean. Very good leh, less mess to clean. Seems like mommy can start buying some water colour for her.

MommyAngel said...

Joanne, yes ... they use watercolour / poster colour to paint the figurine. I think a lots of shopping complex will have this but I can't remember which one already. At least in Bangkok and KK, I can see few outlet here and there as well as those sand painting too.
- oh ya, I am surprised that she didn't messed up her hands and cloth. I did bought a lot of poster colours for her and finger paint for her at home but guess that I am too lazy to do the clean up and that's why they are still storing inside the cupboard. I even get ready a watercolour apron for her to wear too but I am not sure whether she will want to wear that or not :P :P
-how about Sarah?
