When it comes to painting model horses, there are a vast array of techniques and mediums you can use. In the video below, I show some of the techniques that I use when creating a dapple grey. (The model shown in this video will be for sale when finished.)
In the next video, I show how you can add hair detail as well as shading to bring a model to life.
As you can see, it can be a painstaking process bringing a model to life. The amount of time spent planning colors, actual painting, prepping, sealing etc. can take months. In the end, the beautiful work of art is well worth the wait.
