The Blue-tailed Fine-snout skink is a very striking lizard with black and white stripes, a bight copper head and a dazzling blue tail and is based on a real skink. This little skink is so life like that if placed outside birds attack them – it is recommended not to place them outside to protect them from weathering and attack. Made from a polymer the artist hand moulds the shape and then paints them with a variety of paint types creating a very realistic piece. To clean the delicate work, use a very small brush. Do not expose to direct sunlight or immerse in water.
