Well for many years I have thought about doing this, it's kind of like the next level up on the painting horses scale, so I was keen to give it a go. At the moment I'm just jumping straight in and experimenting with colours and drying times etc. I read a little on line to give me some pointers but the best thing to do is get stuck in and get your hands messy.
The smell of the enamel took me straight back to painting D&D figures when I was 15, great stuff.
Out of all the colours I tried I think the chestnut Bay worked out the best. I'm off to buy some black Oil paint now and so will try that on the dark Bay colour to see what it will look like.Once I have worked out what works and what doesn't I will do a follow up post with some tips.
Not so keen on the Dun coloured horses but they still work, I think I will try some more browns and even a white or cream colour next. So far quite happy with the results and It gets a lot of horses painted quickly.
