Importance of Painting

Painting a model miniature adds the finishing touches to it and is very important in making the model appear realistic and giving it character. The model has to be painted to represent the materials it would be constructed from in reality. So if the model is made from plaster different elements of it may have to be painted to look like wood or metal for example to make the building look authentic.

Ageing and weathering is also a vital part of creating an authentic looking model, as everything, especially buildings are affected by the elements of rain, wind, sun etc.
