Dragon Shin Fuji

Got a black Shin Fuji. Didn’t like the paint job not to mention it was super slick. So I figured I would try to paint my own tama. Sanded it down to mostly bare wood and almost left it that way as it looked weathered and old. Went to the store and perused the color selection and decided on a satin poppy red. Multiple coats later the color made me think of a dragon so I decided to draw and burn one onto the ken.
Going to let the paint dry another full day before jamming it but the paint is semi-tacky right now (24 hours dry time) so I think it should play well.


Really, really, well done.
