I am a complete newb at PS and digital retouching.
I am interested in getting a 1940's hand painted glamour pin-up look to some of my photos, like this effect.
How do I do this?

I don't see anything painted. Just pastel background. And skin without texture.

Here's one but unless you tweak the file for larger sizes and prepare the image, I haven't had any joy with it.

You could look at an old book called
Photo Oil Coloring for Fun & Profit by Lucile Robertson Marshall.
I found a copy on eBay for $8 once.
It's about painting on black and white prints to colorize them. You don't actually have to read it, but it may inspire you.
Richie Fahey sites the book as an inspiration. Take a look at his hand colored prints:
Is that the look you are after?

Everyone has their own process, for me, I perfected mine to suit my taste. My suggestion is study the images of the era, and then seek out a lot of tutorials on color and lighting and when you shoot, shoot with the post process in mind, not the other way around. Get a clear idea on what these images look and feel like, color, tone etc and then from there you can start learning by trial and error. There is no quick solution.
Learning a process takes time and effort, but its worth it.
