OK, I know it is not perfect, but I wasn't really going for accurate. So, let me know what you think.

Thank you very much.
Yes it is fiberglass.

I had a heck of a time with this. This is my first paint job. The liquid latex gave me fits. When I took it off it would take layers of paint off with it. So I had to sand it down and start over again. After the 5th time I was so irritated, I just did the touch ups with a brush.

Looking real good. For your first time you did an amazing job. With the liquid latex, were you letting it dry completly before painting over it?

I was doing it a few ways because I wasn't 100% sure of what to do. The 1st time I took it off after I was done with the airbrush. That took off lots of paint. The 2nd time I let it dry to the touch. Again, same thing and down to the prymer. Third time I let it dry for 24 hrs, same thing. So I thought I would try a new bottle of latex. 4th time, let it dry for 24 hrs, nope same thing.
5th time I took some fine sandpaper and gently went over the each color but the green. It worked much better but it still took some paint off.

Any ideas?

Ok, slight update. Finished up the knees. I took a few shots, one with a flash and one without. I was VERY surprised how the colors looked. But here you go....
