Iris Chateaubriand and Jean-Paul

One of my Garage Kit obsessions happens to be Sakura Taisen. I try to collect everything I can and one of the first originals I obtained was this tiny Iris figure from Kotobukiya. At just under 8 cm in height and not many parts, she was quite a challenge to paint.

Entirely hand painted.  The glittery bow was achieved using a pearlizing medium, which leaves bigger glitter particles than I would have preferred but it makes the bow look nice and shiny.  I think Iris would approve.

Here’s some pics with the base, when it was first finished I was waiting for the dollhouse rug I wanted to come in.
