For instance, the green colour of the kilts is enhanced due to the black underglaze - the green by itself would look too bright and cartoony.
The shoes get slightly different treatment as these have 3/4 layers of glaze painted on to get the deep high-gloss finish.
My mum came and helped with the glazing of these last weekend - what a lifesaver!!

|Mum still painting!|
