Hi all,
with my son, we'd like to repaint some dice.
Since I've never painted miniatures or the like, I have no idea of the tools I need, maybe some of you can give us some hints?

what should I buy? I guess paint and a tiny brush, but how tiny? and do I need something else?

Also, how do I remove the existing paint?

thank you in advance,
Danilo

Thank you.

Although the answer seems: don't remove existing paint...

maybe with acetone ?

well I'll try with one sacrificial Firewalker common

As a curiosity, why are you painting the dice?

BTW, the 'process' used to paint the dice originally seems to be just splashing paint in the grooves and then wiping off the face of the die with a cloth.
