Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, Slytherin, and Gryffindor singers in the Hogsmeade Christmas Village!

My latest addition to the Hogsmeade Christmas Village is a set of singers.  I couldn't find any pre-made Dickensian singers in wizard robes, so I painted the old timey clothes in the house colors for Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin.  I didn't fully stick to the straight house color pattern; each one got a little extra Christmas flare for the season. 

I purchased a set of 4 figures that were pretty roughly painted.  I didn't do any edits to the actual figures this time, just repainted everything.  First a coat of white paint, then block coloring the clothing, then dark washes.  I used a black wash for the clothing and a dark brown wash for the skin tones.  For a few areas I then also did some highlight dry brushing of the original color.

The faces were a little more complicated.  A sold block color of skin tone, then a dark wash.  Next a tiny dot of white for the eyes, then an even tinier drop of brown or blue for the iris! I then did a little dry brushing of the skin tone again and red lips for Gryffindor.
