It is a great pleasure for me today to be able to show you Tanja. Tanja is a 75mm flat tin figure, painted by my mate Gerald.
His heart beats, among other things, for the painting of flat figures, and in my opinion he has already reached a very good level in painting this kind of figures. But please don't tell him that I'm a fan of his work ;-)
Some words about the painter...
About the tin figures I stumbled by accident on eBay in 2011. Because the former chairman of the Association of Free Tin Figures Collectors (Vereinigung Freie Zinnfigurensammler e.V.) works in the same company as I do, I took part in a club meeting in May 2011. In January 2012, I then painted my first flat figure. This figure was published by myself. I'm constantly expanding my holdings of slate forms which are prepared by the same way as they have been produced for over 100 years. Tanja is like all unpainted figures from my slate forms available by me on my side Paradoxzinn.
... and now the pictures
Without many words I show you now the pictures from the start up to the presentation of the figure.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Gerald for his kindly permission that I can show his work here and to use his pictures shown in this post.
With this in mind....
