Virtual Britsburgh Live on Demand presents.... 

Making a British Toy Soldier from Start to Finish

 

Painted metal toy soldiers were once the playthings of children and British toy soldiers set the standard for the world. Toy soldier collector and Britsburgh member, Dave Frankowski, will take you through the steps of making a traditional, glossy painted British guardsman toy soldier.  

 

Dave will cast a metal figure from a mold, show the steps to prepare the casting, and the stages of painting it. Hobbyists today still make and paint their own figures and he will share his tips for completing the figure.
