In a post last year I discussed the haul of figures I purchased from Foundry. Included in that lot were some animal figures that my wife wanted me to paint for the kids. Well I finally got around to doing one - a largely submerged hippo. It was a fund fig to paint and I actually experimented with blending - namely the pink around the head. I was reasonably happy with the result considering I hadn't tried blending for 20 off years. And that was due to the fact I was no good at it back then.
