When someone creates a miniature, they have the copyright to the mini, that is, the right to create copies of it. Creating copies without the permission of the copyright holder is illegal.

If sculptor wants to copy the designs of an existing intellectual property (IP), they need the IP holder's permission to do that. Copying the original designs without the licence is illegal. The law protects every design for a number of years. After it has passed, you can use the design but you still can't make physical copies of the originals.

I've seen several opinions and question on the internet about the legalities of copying miniatures, so I've collected some of them.

There are several different ideas of how to do miniatures "properly", and it's often a source of heated debates on the internet forums. The source of these dabates is that these people believe in separate philosophies.

I'm listing here the broad categories, if you'd like to know further details, read their own articles.

Sometimes you wish to change the paint scheme of the miniature or just get rid of the previous layers of paint. There are several ways to strip paint from your miniatures.

A varnish is a kind of medium that contains no pigment. When applied, it gives a transparent layer after drying.

Varnish can change the look of the colours under it based on how transparent it will become, and can also change the reflectivity. If you add several layers of varnish, it increases the chance of changing the colours and it will also become more and more opaque. Some varnish can get "old", and after a few years or decades it can change in transparency or reflectivity (become yellow), and can crack.
